Environmental Engineering Study Program

Water supply, sanitation, and proper management of the environment as well as natural resources remains as national and strategic issues in Indonesia. Failure or success of the handling will determine the health status of the people in the present and future living. These open options are become the responsibility of all components of the nation including universities. This paradigm underlies the establishment of Environmental Engineering Study Program at the Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Indonesia.

Environmental Engineering is a branch of engineering field that specifically addressed in:

  1. Protection of human population from any harmful environmental impacts
  2. Protection of environment in either local or global scope from any potential destruction/damage due to natural and anthropogenic activities.
  3. Improvement of environmental quality.

The forerunner of Environmental Engineering at Universitas Indonesia is a specialization of Sanitary Engineering which is one of five specializations in Civil Engineering Undergraduate Program, Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering. As there is significant increase of public interest on environmental and sanitary engineering, also to provide graduate students and expert to solve environmental issues in Indonesia, Environmental Engineering Study Program (EESP) was opened in 2006 under the authorization of DIKTI with number 16/D/T/2006 in January 3rd, 2006. In accordance with the graduate profile, the EESP aims to produce a Bachelor of Engineering capable of designing a sustainable environmental engineering infrastructure conforms with the professional ethics. Furthermore, the objectives of EESP are to produce graduates who: (1) has a career in planning, development, implementation, and management of sustainable environmental engineering systems; (2) is a lifelong learner, always developing its ability to answer the dynamics of the development of the world of environmental engineering, and may continue to higher education. Administratively, EESP Universitas Indonesia is under the Department of Civil Engineering management and serves both regular and parallel class. As to ensuring academic quality and committing on continuous improvement, in 2018, EESP have been assessed by the ASEAN University Network – Quality Assessment (AUN-QA) No. AP304UIAPR18; in February 2020 accredited by Indonesia Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (IABEE) No. 00034.A; and in July 2020 accredited UNGGUL by BAN-PT No. 4249/SK/BAN-PT/Akred-Itnl/S/VII/2020.


The student admission of EESP follows the requirements set by Universitas Indonesia (UI). Since the government regulations allow public university (PTN) to conduct self-admission exams, then UI held 3 type of student admission such as SNMPTN (National Admission selection for State University); SBMPTN (Collaborative Admission Test for State University) and SIMAK UI (Local University Admission Test). The details about the student admission can be found on the website http://simak.ui.ac.id. Briefly, the student admission for EESP UI is carried out in 2 ways; student admission with and without entrance exam. The bachelor degree of Environmental Engineering accepts students for regular and parallel program. Non entry test for Student Admission (SNMPTN & PPKB) Non entry test student admission is the entry selection based on the value of report cards. The acceptance is based on academic achievement indicated by the value of report cards, the school’s achievement index, and the capacity. SNMPTN is designated for students who will graduate in the same year as they registered. SNMPTN is an invitation path for the student admission of the bachelor regular program. Although SNMPTN is an invitation path, it does not mean that UI sends an invitation to school. Instead, the SNMPTN national committee announces to schools to fill in student data on the PDSS website so students can enroll for SNMPTN student admission. Applicants may choose several educational programs available at various universities in Indonesia. Students who can’t participate in SNMPTN still have the opportunity to apply the bachelor regular program through SBMPTN. Enrollment test Anyone can participate in written test for student admissions without graduation year limitation, but must follow the provisions of each educational program. SBMPTN is a written test for national student admission which is organized by the SBMPTN national committee. The test is intended for bachelor regular program. The maximum limit of the graduate year is 3 years, for example: student admission through SBMPTN 2020 made for high school (or equivalent) students who graduated in 2018, 2019, and 2020. Applicants can choose some existing programs in various universities in Indonesia. For further information, please visit SBMPTN official website (https://sbmptn.ac.id/). SIMAK is independent student admission tests organized by UI. This admission test designated to Bachelor Regular Program, Bachelor Parallel Program, and Vocational Program. The graduation year limit applies to the Registrant for Bachelor Regular Program. However, there is no limit of the graduation year for Parallel and Vocational Program. Applicants may choose several study programs and major on Regular, Parallel and Vocational simultaneously in one exam. The admission scheme does not affect the tuition fee. The tuition fee is determined by the education programs. Generally, the difference between the program is the entry tuition fee. Regular Program freed with the entry tuition fee and on the other hand Parallel Program charged with the entry tuition fee.

Tuition Fee

Since 2004, Universitas Indonesia has waived the entry tuition fee for the new student of Regular Program as UI’s policy to allocate the cost of entry tuition fee from BOPTN (Operational Aid for State Higher Education) funds obtained from the Ministry of Education and Culture of Indonesia. In academic year 2015/2016, all new students of regular program were charged only Biaya Operasional Pendidikan-Berkeadilan (BOP-B) paid per semester based on the ability of the parent of student as the responsible person.

  • Industry —manufacturing, construction, and energy industrial sectors which have responsibility for treatment facility operation and minor design.
  • Consulting Engineering Service — as facility design and can be expanded to include more emphasis on Brownfield investigations, pollut¬ant transport, regulatory guidance, sustainability, and facility operation.

To form an appropriate graduate profile, the 2016 EESP Curriculum is referred to documents issued by the International Engineering Alliance (IEA) which incorporates 3 constituent agreements comprising the Washington Accord, Sydney Accord and Dublin Accord. The International Professional Engineering Agreement in Washington Accord used as a reference in the development of engineering education curriculum in the world. Based on Washington Accord (WA) there are 12 graduates’ attributes (competencies) that must be achieved. Competencies issued by the Washington Accord commonly applied in undergraduate engineering program, specifically the competence for Environmental Engineering also refers to documents issued by the American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE) in 2009 and the American Academy of Environmental Engineering (AAEE) in the year 2008. In addition, the competence has also been adjusted to the Indonesian National Qualification Framework (KKNI).

Compared to other environmental engineering study program in other universities in Indonesia, graduates from EESP Universitas Indonesia has uniqueness in ability to design the building infrastructure of environmental engineering, thanks to the support of civil engineering study program under the Department of Civil Engineering

Transition Policy
Transition Rules from 2012 to 2016 Curriculum

  • The admission for 2016 Curriculum starts from 2016/2017 Semester. After 2016 Curriculum admission, only modules included in this curriculum that will open for lecture, therefore a-year-period transition is enacted (during Sept 2016 to July 2017). During this transition, lectures from 2016 curriculum modules can open if there is any certain requirement/urgency in the 1st or 2nd semester of this one-year transition period.
  • Students who have not passed any compulsory modules in 2012 Curriculum can take the same or equivalent lectures in Curriculum 2016. Equivalency for modules can be seen at Curriculum 2016 – 2012 Equivalency Table.
  • If there is a discrepancy/difference in credit amount in the transition, the allowed credit amount considered for graduation is the credit when module is being taken.
  • The minimum credit required to graduate from undergraduate program is 114 credits. In 2016 curriculum, the modules composition should be 132 credits for compulsory modules and 12 credits for optional modules.
  • Deficiency of achieved credits due to curriculum transition can be covered by taking compulsory modules in 2016 curriculum, while any excess of achieved credits only results in responsibility lessening for taking more optional modules
