Soerjanto Tjahjono was born on May 23, 1960 in Jakarta. After graduating from high school in 1979, I entered the Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB), studied in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering and graduated in 1986.

I joined Garuda Indonesia Airline as a system analyst and computer programmer for about 1.5 year. In 1988, I had been transferred to Garuda Maintenance Facility (GMF) commissioned an airframe and power-plant technician (practices as aircraft engineer) for 1.5 year. In beginning 1990, I joined to Engineering department as junior structure engineer. In 1991, as the lead of narrow Body structure group for Fokker F-28, DC-9 and Boeing 737, and assigned to develop Reliability Control Program for Garuda Indonesia Airline. Since 1991 he served also as an instructor for Corrosion Control Program, Composite Repair and Airworthiness. In the end of 1993 as a head of the aircraft structure department.

In end of 1994, I moved to Delft, The Netherlands to begin my doctoral studies under supervision of Prof. Ir. L. B. Vogelesang and Prof. ir. K. Smit. As part of the Structures and Materials group, the subject investigates Glare as a repair material in existing aircraft and as a replacement for aircraft structural parts (e.g. cargo floor panel) and economic consequences in aircraft repair and maintenance. I was graduated in June 1998 and return to Garuda Indonesia and also joint NTSC.
