DR. Ir. Tri Wibowo, M.Sc graduated from Metallurgy Engineering of Mining Department, Institute of Technology Bandung in 1979. After graduated from ITB he worked as Research Engineer. In 1985 he took master degree in Tribology of Metallurgy and Material Engineering Department, Vanderbilt, Nashville, Tennessee University USA and Five years latter he continued his study by taking PhD degree in Mechanic Metallurgy and Material Engineering Department, KU, Leuven, Belgie.

In his study periods he had a lot of experiences in industrial, for example, in 1980 he was a Research Engineer. In the same time he responsible for Material Identification, In-Situ Metallographic, Remaining Life Assessment and Failure analysis in refinery plants of many cases in oil and gas industries. From 1999 on, he is a leader of laboratory for failure Analysis and Remaining Life Assessment (FARLA)

As a matter of fact, he is a lecturer in Post Graduate on Manufacturing in Mechanical Department of ISTN (National Institute for Science and Technology). Other than teaching, he actives as a free-lance instructor for educations, trainings or courses in the field of material of selection, failure analysis and remaining life assessment, tribology and material testing. Mr. Wibowo is also active as member of Expert Committee in INDOCOR (Indonesian Corrosion Association) and Indonesian Engineer Association member (PII). Lot of his experiences in the field of failure analysis so he published many papers in the field of failure analysis, remaining life assessment, fatigue of metal, corrosion and related topics in journals, seminars or symposium in Indonesia.
