Civil Engineering

Test

Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline and encompasses many specialties. Civil engineering can be described as the application of engineering to civil society. Civil engineers apply the principles of engineering to meeting society’s fundamental needs for housing, transportation, sanitation, and the other necessities of a modern society. Civil engineers deal with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings, as well as other challenges such as deteriorating infrastructures, complex environmental issues, outdated transportation systems, and natural disasters.
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.

In accordance to University financial policy, since 2011, Civil Engineering accepts full time students who are grouped into Regular S1 and Parallel S1. The different about the two classes only in the entrance scheme and the amount of enrollment and tuition fee. There is no different between the two classes in term of expected Learning Outcomes, curriculum, teaching learning strategy, student assessment and the lecturer. Hence, the graduate profile of the two classes are the same.

Students who pass SBMPTN are grouped as regular class. The government subsidizes their tuition, and the students do not have to pay any enrollment fee. Regular S1 students can also enroll from SIMAK and SNMPTN. Parallel students are those who pay full tuition and pass SIMAK UI tests or SNMPTN. The parallel program also accepts students from Diploma (D3) programs with a credit transfer mechanism.

Entrance Scheme

The admission policy to Universitas Indonesia follows three regulations: (1) the Act of the Republic of Indonesia No. 14 / 2005 concerning higher education, (2) Government Regulation No. 4/2004 concerning management in higher education and government university, and (3) Regulation No. 2/2015 issued by Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education.

According to those regulations, the admission of new students for stated universities can be done through National Admission selection for State University (SNMPTN); Collaborative Admission Test for State University (SBMPTN); and Local University Admission Test (SIMAK).

SNMPTN
Selection for SNMPTN is based on high school academic portfolio. High school students with high and consistent grades are invited to enroll to state universities without tests through SNMPTN. Schools are required to submit school and student database (PDSS) in a complete and correct manner, and in addition, push and support students in the process of SNMPTN registration which are based on invitation. Final selection of students who are accepted through these schemes will be determined by the University. The selection process is done by the New Student Admission Office (Kantor Penerimaan Mahasiswa Baru). The selection team is appointed by the Rector, and will select new students based on student’s school academic achievement, consistency of grades, and quality or rank at school. Based on data in the last three years, there has been an escalation in the percentage of students who were accepted through University invitations. The selection process is held from December to April.

SBMPTN
The SBMPTN test is conducted simultaneously in July throughout Indonesia. The test is accountable, transparent, and universal. It ignores race, gender, religion, social class, and economic capability of students. The government provides scholarships for intelligent coming from unfortunate families. About 30-40% of students are accepted through this test.

SIMAK UI
Since 2009, the government has allowed state universities to organize independent new student admission tests. UI has allocated around 20% from study program capacities to be accepted and be tested the same test materials as SBMPTN. Details and information about Universitas Indonesia’s admission procedures can be accessed from (http://penerimaan.ui.ac.id and http://simak.ui.ac.id).

Career ProspectsProgram SpecificationCurriculum

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.

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.
