Prologue
Politeknik ATK Yogyakarta, which is owned by the Indonesian Ministry of Industry, is the only polytehnic that provides leather education in Southeast Asia. Politeknik ATK Yogyakarta devotes to prepare competent and qualified human resources by providing education and training in accordance with the needs of the leather industries. Politeknik ATK Yogyakarta is committed to improve its machines and equipment (shoe production units, testing laboratories, and tanning workshops) and excel in their competence as an education and training institution. Integration of complete machineries and equipment with experienced and competent human resources combined with industrial and international collaboration are the hallmarks of Politeknik ATK Yogyakarta to become a reliable manufacturer of industrial human resources in the field of leather, rubber and plastic products with global standards and play a role in development of national industry.

History
The forerunner of the education at the Politeknik ATK Yogyakarta began in 1954 when the Indonesian Ministry of Industry held a Leather Course called ‘Kursus C”. Formerly, this training aimed to provide technical manpower to support the Leather Research Institute and industries. Furthermore, in line with the demands of academy-level education capable of producing cadres in the field of leather technology in order to improve the leather industry quality in Indonesia, on September 1, 1958, the status was changed into the Leather High School. Later on, it was changed into academy, with the name Academy of Leather Technology and every September 1st serves as its anniversary. The change was made to meet the need for academy level higher education providing skilled alumni to support export oriented leather industries.
To further optimize the role of higher education institutions within the Ministry of Industry in supporting competitive industrial development through the provision of a reliable and competent industrial workforce, the Academy of Leather Technolog status was changed to Politeknik ATK Yogyakarta in 2015 with 3 (three) Departments.

  1. Leather Processing Technology
  2. Leather Product Processing Technology
  3. Rubber and Plastics Processing Technology
