Final Project Assignment System

The Distribution Mechanism of Final Project Students.

  1. Proposed way of distribution
    1. Students are allowed to choose a supervisor on the basis of priority which enrolls up to 6 (six) students per supervisor, the rest will be distributed by the Study Program.
    2. If a student has a particular interest and their first advisors expertise is not correspond to the topic, then it is permissible to take a second advisors from another lecturer whose expertise is corresponded to his or her interest.
    3. Each lecturer are allowed to become the second advisors of maximum 10 (ten) students.
  2. Proposed duration of supervision
    1. Maximum completion of Final Project is 2 (two) semesters, if more than 2 (two) semesters the supervision will be reviewed by Study Program.
    2. Final project completion time should not exceed the study period determined by ITB.
  3. Final Project Grade is on the basis of the following percentages:
    1. Final Project Colloquium (10%)
    2. Comprehensive Exam (20%)

Final Project Exam (70%)
Final project Exam, consist of:
1. Script grade (Substance, Format and Template, Rule, Writing, Language) 60%
2. Trial examination grade (question and answer session) 40%


Assigning Colloquium Has Value Equivalent to Seminar with Implementation Mechanism as Follows

  2. Comprehensive examination will be conducted 2 (two) times in each semester, i.e. during week 7 and 14.
  3. The student must take the Final Project Credits to be eligible for the comprehensive exam.


Final Defense
