Electrical Engineering Education Programme have colected data from SIAKADU (integrated academic information system) regarding student graduation data as shown below. Table A2.2 Average length of study of Electrical Engineering Education student from Year 2014-2017
|No.||Year Student||Average length of study (Semester)|
The average study period for Electrical Engineering Education students is 8.85 semesters. The study period for the 2016 and 2017 year decreased by 8.4 semester to 9 semester, while the shortest study period in the year of 2015 was 8 semester. In general, the study period of Electrical Engineering Education students is longer than the previous year. This happened because the student of 2016 and 2017 faced many obstacles, especially at the beginning of the pandemic, while the year of 2016 and 2017 faced a pandemic at the end of their study year.

To find out the problems of students who exceed the study period or do not graduate on time, Electrical Engineering Education have made a questionnaire for the students who have not finished their study on-time about the students’ study period and the obstacles they faced. From the results of the questionnaire, there are several problems that cause student studies to be not on time which are contained in the following figure:
Figure 1. Obstacle questionnaire result for student that who have not finished their study
From the figure above, it can be seen that from 15.87% of students who have not graduated, there are 36% of students who do not graduate on time because of work, 28% of students have not completed their study period because of difficulties with their supervisor, 16% have difficulty with these materials and administrative problems, and 12% due to family problems and health problems. While 8% experienced financial problems.
In addition, we also conducted interviews with supervisors and academic advisors regarding the obstacles faced by students while completing their studies. From the results of the interviews, it was found several reasons related to the obstacles faced by students
- When collecting data, it was not adjusted to the research plan.
- Lack of student knowledge when finding data that is not in accordance with the plan.
- Lack of reading books or research journals as a reference for analyzing data.
- The level of ability to analyze data into research solutions is still lacking for students.
To overcome the problems faced by students, Academic Advisors and Department Managers are more active in monitoring the presence of students who have passed the ideal study period through regular weekly discussions regarding the progress of their studies.
