Magister Program of Civil Engineering was established in 1992. Initially there were five majors available, which were structure, geotechnic, transportation, water resources management and construction management. Following the demand and development of science –technology, it was then expanded with three additional majors, i.e. project management, infrastructure management and sanitary engineering. The program has been accredited by BAN PT (National Board of Accreditation) with score A.
The study conducted in two different locations, Salemba Campus in central Jakarta and Depok campus. The program held in Salemba called as executive class which is meant to employers. The courses is conducted in the afternoon from 17.00 to 21.00. On the other hand, the program held in Depok called as Reguler Class where the class is conducted from 08.00 – 17.00.
Students graduate from Civil Engineering are suggested for those interest in Structure, Geotechnics, Construction Management and Water Resources Management. However, students from other engineering undergraduate study program such as Architect, Geology, etc still can apply but they should take matriculation. Similarly, specialization in Transportation can accept students from other undergraduates program in engineering or sciences field but they are required to take matriculation as well. Project Management and Infrastructure Management accept students from various undergraduate program.
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.
