This study aims to improve the mastery of concepts, learning activities, and students' perceptions about the relationship of basic Electronics courses with Computer Engineering Study Programs through contextual learning with problem solving approaches. The research subjects were 50 first semester students of the Computer Engineering Study Program 2017/2018 academic year. The study was conducted over four weeks consisting of one week of preparation sessions and 3 learning cycles of three weeks accompanied by interview sessions. Data was collected through a questionnaire and test of learning outcomes, and analyzed using descriptive statistics. The results showed that contextual learning strategies with problem solving approaches in Computer Engineering learning can improve students' mastery of concepts through problem solving. In addition, learning activities, and students' perceptions about the relevance of electronics courses in the Computer Engineering Study Program also increased.
