Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) or Bandung Insitute of Technology or Institute of technology Bandung, was founded in 1959. The present ITB main campus is the site of earlier engineering schools in Indonesia. Although these institutions of higher learning had their own individual characteristics and missions, they left influence on developments leading to the establishment of ITB.

In 1920, Technische Hogeschool (TH) was established in Bandung, which for a short time, in the middle forties, became Kogyo Daigaku. Not long after the birth of the Republic of Indonesia in 1945, the campus housed the Technical Faculty (including a Fine Arts Department) of Universitas Indonesia, with the head office in Jakarta. In the early fifties, a Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, also part of Universitas Indonesia, was established on the campus.

In 1959, the present lnstitut Teknologi Bandung was founded by the Indonesian government as an institution of higher learning of science, technology, and fine arts, with a mission of education, research, and service to the community.

Government Decree No. 155/2000 pertaining to The Decision on ITB as Legal Enterprise (Badan Hukum) has opened a new path for ITB to become autonomous. The status of autonomy implies a freedom for the institution to manage its own bussiness in an effective and efficient way, and to be fully responsible for the planning and implementation of all program and activity, and the quality control for the attainment of its institutional objective. The institution has also freedom in deciding their measures and taking calculated risks in facing tight competition and intense pressures.

The Faculty of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (FMAE) is one of 12 faculties/schools at ITB. The history of FMAE can be traced back to the inception of Department of Mechanical Engineering at Technische Hogeschool Bandoeng in 1941. During further development of ITB, Department of Aerospace Engineering and Department of Material Engineering were established. The three departments were reorganized in 2008 and grouped under one faculty: FMAE.

The Faculty offers bachelor, master and doctoral program in Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautics and Astronautics, and Material Engineering. Furthermore, the Faculty also involves in the new inter-disciplinary Master Program on New and Renewable Energy, and Master of Technology in Mechanical Engineering for Oil and Gas Facilities. The Faculty supports over 120 academic and general staff, and a total of 1255 undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Covering over 9000 m2 on the north-west area of ITB main campus, the Faculty comprises seven research groups with 12 research laboratories. The research laboratories are well equipped with wide array of experimental and computational facilities. In addition to supporting educational activities, these laboratories are also utilized for academic and industrial research work.

Cooperation between the Faculty and industrial partners includes traineeship placement for undergraduate students, industrial research projects and graduate employment. The Faculty has industrial links in a multitude of industrial sectors, both national and international companies.

Internationally, the Faculty is a part of AUN/SEED-Net, a collaborative network between ASEAN and Japanese Universities. The Faculty also has inter-university agreement with numerous leading universities in Europe, Japan, Australia and United States. The international student exchange program, postgraduate scholarships and sandwich program exemplify the international cooperation between the Faculty and universities abroad.

With its vision for educational and research excellence in the field of mechanical, aerospace and material engineering, the Faculty continues the fascinating journey that spans over seven decades.
