Undergraduate Program

Undergraduate program of Engineering Physics is a bachelor program with A-accreditation for high-school (SMA) graduates or vocational school (SMK). In the 2017/2018 Academic Year, the acceptance of new students in the Undergraduate (S1) Program in Engineering Physics refers to the Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education Regulation (Permenristekdikti) Number 2 of 2015 concerning “New Student Admission for Undergraduate Programs in State Universities”, as amended by Regulation Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education Number 45 of 2015 concerning Amendments to the Regulation of the Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education Number 2 of 2015 concerning “New Student Admission for Undergraduate Programs at State Universities”.

Based on the Ministerial Regulation, it was determined that the pattern of acceptance of new students in the bachelor degree of Engineering Physics was carried out through three patterns, namely:

  • Seleksi Nasional Masuk Perguruan Tinggi Negeri (SNMPTN)
  • Seleksi Bersama Masuk Perguruan Tinggi Negeri (SBMPTN), dan
  • Seleksi Mandiri Program Kemitraan dan Mandiri (PKM)

The capacity of Undergraduate Engineering Physics Program is varying every year, about 120 up to 150 students. From SNMPTN at least 30% capacity is fulfilled and another minimum of 40% students is taken from SBMPTN, whereas PKM fill the other 30% as stated by the regulations.

Acceptance Rate (AR) 2018, through the link of Offer (O) 2019 and Applications Submitted (AS) 2018, Department of Engineering Physics is in the following:

  1. SNMPTN: 54 (O), 501 (AS), 9.18% (AR)
  2. SBMPTN: 72 (O), 871 (AS), 7.23% (AR)
  3. PKM: 54 (O), 552 (AS), 9.42% (AR)

Undergraduate students should finish the study with at least 144 credits being arranged in 8 semesters (a semester consists of 16 weeks of lectures and evaluation). The graduates will be conferred Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng). The study is divided into two stages, preparation (the first 36 credits in the first two semesters) and undergraduate stages (the rest 108 credits in the next three years)

The Program Educational Objectives of Engineering Physics Program are to ensure that EP graduates become:

  1. Engineering physicists who are able to assess and contribute to the solution of technical and engineering problems that are based on broad principles of physics

During their education, students of Engineering Physics can choose one of the five specializations provided such as, Instrumentation and Controls, Energy, Materials, Vibration and Acoustics, and Photonics. Specialization is highly related to the elective courses and the topic of final project.


Instrumentation and Controls

In the Specialization of Instrumentation and Control, students learn about design, manufacturing, and the operation of physical instruments as well as instrumentation systems for the detection, observation, measurement, automatic control system, data communication, also data acquisition in many applications from industrial to medical. The main activities for students in this specialization are :

  • Developing the hardware of measurement, control, and safety instruments for the application in industry or medical field
  • Developing network technologies for detection, observation, and control
  • Developing smart instrumentation such as neural network, genetic algorithm, fuzzy logic, and artificial intelligent for the use simulation and computation
  • Developing medical instrumentation
    The Instrumentation and Control Laboratory is the main facility where students can work and having some experiments.


Energy Engineering and Environmental Conditioning

The specialization of energy engineering allows students to learn the discipline of thermal engineering, renewable energy, energy conservation, and their application to the environment. Thermal Engineering mainly study that some variables such as temperature, pressure, flow, etc. is manipulated to achieve comfortable condition of the environment and increase the system`s performance. In the other side, the renewable energy, energy conservation, and energy management is learned both in the industrial and housing scale. The research and experiments of this specialization mostly carried out in the Energy Engineering and Environmental Conditioning Laboratory


Materials Engineering

The specialization of Material Engineering is about the design, synthesis, and analysis of a material. The application of certain material depends of the development of technology used. Some topic studied at the Materials Lab are as follows :

  • Design, application, and analysis of sensor, including semiconductor and ceramics-based sensors
  • Microelectronics device
  • Analysis of materials performance, as the industrial instruments as well as manufacturing industries


Vibration and Acoustics

Specialization of Vibration and Acoustics related to the concept and characteristic of vibration, acoustics, and lighting, for both indoors and outdoors applications. The architectural variables of a building are manipulated to fulfill comfort level requirement. Besides that, the hearing nature of human, underwater acoustics, auditory signal processing, are also studied in this specialization. The Vibration and Acoustics laboratory used as main facility for learning and research purposes.


Photonics Engineering

The study of light started more than 1000 years ago, but still, there are lots of its mystery that has not been found. In the Photonics Engineering specialization, students learn about the definition and function of light, optics, optoelectrics, and photonics. Both light`s properties as particle (photons), and as a lightwave helps in the advancement of communications, non-destructive detection systems, bio-medical, even industries. The most prominent example is the optical fiber communication system. It gives better transmission because of smaller signal loss than normal copper cable.Photonics has brought many scientific concepts to the realization since the invention of laser in the 60s which becomes the beginning of revolution in optics. The development of laser technology, both in characteristic, design, and application is also becomes the part of this specialization. Photonics Engineering Laboratory is the place where students can learn and be a part of photonics community, because it has 2 student chapters, OSA and SPIE. Both are international photonics organization which support the education and research funding in the field of photonics for Engineering Physics students.

The curriculum of bachelor degree consist of 144 credits, divided into 8 semesters (one semester consists of 16 weeks of coursework and evaluation). The requirement is given by two stages :

  • Preliminary stage : 36 credits during first 2 semesters
  • Bachelor stage : 108 credits during the next 6 semesters

some courses is obligatory and some other are electives
