"Di mana gedung teknik yang baru?"

Translation:Where is the new engineering building?

February 7, 2019



I understand that "teknik" in English means "techique", so it seems strange to refer to a building as "technique". Perhaps a better word to use in Indonesian would be "teknologi" ("technology" in English), hence "gedung teknologi". Also depending on countries, technology and engineeing are two separate porgrams in post secondary education. How are they structured in Indonesia?


Why is "Where is a new engineering building?" not correct? Any part of the original sentence makes it must use "the" here?
