The International undergraduate program in the Faculty of Engineering Universitas Indonesia (FTUI) is a furtherance of high quality education to produce engineering graduates with abilities to compete internationally by providing students with the opportunity to experience an international education at a relatively lower cost. Students will also benefit from the international exposure they will receive not only in diversity of culture and language but also in establishing international networking. Currently FTUI held two program of international undergraduate, the double degree and the single degree program for six study programs.
The program started in 2001 when FTUI formulated and agreed to conduct a double-degree international undergraduate program with Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane Australia for Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and Monash University in Sydney Australia for Chemistry and Metallurgy & Material Engineering. In 2010, FTUI added two more prominent universities in Australia as partner, Curtin University and The University of Queensland. Another partner University, Deakin University in Sydney, is in final refinement of MoU and hopefully can be another alternative partner university for double degree program of Civil Engineering in 2015.
In double-degree program, students are required to complete two years at Universitas Indonesia and another two years at partner university. At the completion of their studies in Australia, students will be awarded a Bachelor of Engineering from partner universities and a Sarjana Teknik degree when they return to FTUI and fulfill certain requirements.
The undergraduate international single degree program was launched in 2011 as a result of an increasing demand to provide an international quality education locally. Students in this program are not obligated to continue their last four semester of study at one of our partner universities like their classmates who wishes to pursue a double degree. However, students of single degree program are required to do Study Abroad for a period between one to four semesters at an overseas university. The aims are to widen the international perspective of the students, to have experience to study in an overseas university, to enhance language capability, to enhance cross-cultural adaptability. Study Abroad can be conducted during regular semesters or Summer Program.
Details and information about admission to International Program can be found in (http://penerimaan.ui.ac.id and http://simak.ui.ac.id). There are two scheme to enroll in international program, Talentscouting and SIMAK UI. Talentscouting is selection based on high school academic portfolio. The scheme is limited to selected highschool invited by Universitas Indonesia. Student can only apply one international program in UI through this scheme. Those who fail in this scheme can enroll through SIMAK UI. SIMAK for International Program is written test conducted by Universitas Indonesia. All tested materials is in English. Please visit related website for detail.
Civil engineering education is to prepare students to be master planners, designers, constructors, and managers of various civil engineering works. The graduates can work in all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.
Civil engineers can have a career in public sector such as Public Works Department, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Fund, Ministry of Defense, and Maritime & Port Authority. The private sector offers career opportunities in consulting firms specializing in structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation system, etc. For those engineers more interested in construction, opportunities exist with contractors, developers and construction firms.
Curriculum of single degree of International Program is similar to Regular Program of Civil Engineering. It was developed based on ASCE. Hence ELO and graduate profile of S1 Reguler/Paralel and International Program are the same.
The civil engineering learning outcomes were adopted from those proposed by the American Society of Civil Engineers – Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge (ASCE-CE BOK2, 2008). These outcomes satisfy those set by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Subsequently, the CESP learning outcomes were verified to satisfy the Indonesia National Qualification Framework launched by the Government of Indonesia (GoI) in year 2012. In the preparation for the CESP 2016 Curriculum, these learning outcomes have also verified against those set by the Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education and the Institution of Engineers Singapore – Engineering Accreditation Board (both signatories of Washington Accord), as well as those drafted by the Indonesian Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (to apply for Washington Accord in 2019). Based on the current experience, we are considering to reduce the number of the stated learning outcomes in the CESP 2016 Curriculum for ease of outcome assessment.
