Independent Professional Profile

Independent Professional Profile of Geophysical Engineering Department

Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) has 3 (three) main strategic pillars to realize ITS as an internationally reputed university. This pillar is to produce superior Human Resources (HR), contribute to national solutions and build a prosperous society. Through these three pillars, the Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program, as part of ITS and the Faculty of Civil, Planning and Geo Engineering (FT-SPK) is oriented towards future human resource needs and the development of research-based higher education institutions with international reputation. In line with the vision of ITS, the vision of FT-SPK, the three pillars of ITS transformation and based on input from stakeholders, the vision of the ITS Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program which is the general guideline as well as the shared aspiration is: “To become a pioneer and reputable research-based higher education center. international science and technology innovation, especially to support industries in the fields of energy and mineral resources, marine engineering, and environmentally sound infrastructure development.

The beginning of the formation of the Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program in 2012, this vision has been implemented in a tagline / slogan “The Geophysicist: The Explorer, The Few, The Proud,” which aims to build pride as an explorer in accordance with the characteristics of science and knowledge. geophysicist technology which is on the upstream side, builds self-pride as a geophysicist profession, which is small in number and builds community capacity. In line with changes to the existing curriculum, in 2020, the tagline will be transformed into “Exploring the Earth, Empowering Society“. The ITS Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program actively contributes to broad benefits, through geophysical competencies, to be part of the solution towards the nation and the state will be more competitive globally.

To meet the demands that have been outlined in the vision and tagline, the mission of the ITS Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program has been formulated. The missions of the ITS Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program are as follows:

  1. Carrying out research-based higher education that is internationally reputable, accountable and responsible in the field of geology, through cooperation with government and private institutions / agencies, both at home and abroad.
  2. Actively applying and disseminating all methods, innovative work results and all available resources in the use of technological research results for solving energy and mineral resource problems, infrastructure for the sake of improving the quality of the community’s environment in a sustainable manner.
  3. Developing ethical values, morals, attitudes and character of technopreneurial based on science and technology in the academic community.
  4. Manage all organizational resources at its disposal by paying attention to the principles of good civil service governance (transparent, accountable, responsible, independent and just).

This mission is manifested in the form of an Outcome Based Education (OBE) curriculum. The Graduate Learning Outcomes (CPL) of the implementation of the curriculum refer to the international accreditation criteria by considering the KKNI level 6 descriptors at the undergraduate level and the national higher education standards regarding graduate competence. In line with ITS academic regulations, the ability of graduates from a course is measured by Course Learning Outcomes (CPMK). Thus, CPL is achieved through the integrative accumulation of CPMK from several subjects, either partially or as a whole. Achievement of CPL is obtained from the implementation of all courses, both compulsory and optional, at least 144 credits, based on ITS academic regulation No. 15 of 2018. All the criteria for Quality Assurance (quality assurance standards) for higher education are implemented in a learning process on campus which is based on:

  1. Approach to the current needs of stakeholders in business, industry, research and education institutions and government. Approaches are made through, among others: professional association discussion forums, tracer studies of graduate users and feedback from alumni.
  2. Human resources and organizations and their governance that support the achievement of graduate competencies.
  3. Excellence and local and national wisdom that are internalized into graduate competencies.
  4. Learning enrichment inside and outside the university based on Student Centered Learning (SCL), by paying attention to the needs and desires of individual students in the corridor of independent learning.

Based on the performance of the process according to the criteria of Quality Assurance, the ability to complete all complete learning processes, and the dynamics of technology in the era of digitalization 4.0, it can be expected that graduates of the ITS Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program are able to have high employability characters to enter the job market both at the national and international levels formulated in the Independent Professional Profile of the ITS Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program as follows:

  1. Individuals who are able to think critically and innovatively through a team work approach and active communication.
  2. Individuals who are able to contribute actively, as a formidable problem solver to the problems of exploration and exploitation of the earth, based on mastery of earth science and technology by promoting professional ethics and sustainable principles.
  3. Individuals who are able to carry out and develop entrepreneurship in trans-disciplines or trans-professions by considering earth science and technology.

The independent professional profile has been discussed since the implementation of the OBE curriculum in the 2014 ITS Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program and was reviewed at the beginning of the 2018 curriculum change period. Professional activities such as the Geophysical Higher Education Workshop (Indonesian Geophysical Study Program Coordination Forum), the professional association-Indonesian Geophysical Expert Association (HAGI), the community of the Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program ITS in the future will conduct regular review of the independent professional profile together Geophysical Engineering advisory board and all stakeholders. Communication, socialization and publication of this matter is carried out through internal and external communication forums and widely through the official website and social media of the ITS Geophysical Engineering Undergraduate Study Program ( us / profiles-professional-independent-engineering-geophysics-department /). This communication is to improve accessibility between lecturers, students, stakeholders and the community. Independent professional profiles are directly conveyed in online seminar forums, introduction to study program profiles in videos linked in the official WEB of the Study Program, delivered by lecturers when starting lectures in front of students, becoming an attachment in curriculum documents, pamphlets and department profile brochures
