Vocational education itself is education that emphasizes the practical skills needed to directly enter the world of work. Similar to Poltekba, the teaching system is 70% practice-based and 30% theory-based

Graduating from high school or vocational school, sometimes raises the dilemma of choosing to continue at a university or polytechnic. Things like this are often not considered carefully. Usually taking the lecture route, it is not only a matter of knowledge alone, but how these graduates have the skills and are ready to compete in the world of work.

So choosing a Polytechnic is an interesting option. Balikpapan State Polytechnic offers a variety of majors. Currently, the Oil City vocational campus has five majors, namely Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Hospitality and Accounting.
