Undergraduate Program

Educational Objective

Undergraduate Program in Geological Engineering formulate educational objectives and expected learning outcomes of the students based on several aspect, such as: ITB and FITB Vision and Mission, national needs, International and National standard on bachelor in geoscience education, as well as input from our students, graduates, alumni organization, and geological society. Our educational objective is below:  

  1. To produce graduates who have strong fundamental knowledge in engineering and science so that they are flexible to adapt to the rapid development of science and technology, and success in their profession and further education.
  2. To produce graduates who are able to apply engineering fundamentals to solve various geological-related problems.
  3. To produce graduates who have the attitude and behavior that have positive impact in community (hard and soft skills) as well as showing leadership in their environment.

Intended Learning Outcome

Learning outcomes for the Undergraduate Program in Geological Engineering are defined according to the input from these several stakeholders such as professors, lecturers, researchers, alumni, geologist community, stakeholders and collaborators, as well as students will also be participated in the definition process of the learning outcomes. 


According to those bases, Undergraduate Program in Geological Engineering has set the Program Learning Outcomes (PLO) for the graduates as follows: 

  1. Students will be able to comprehend fundamentals of mathematics, engineering and geological sciences.
  2. Students will be able to define geological and engineering problems and design appropriate approach and methods that can be utilized using both computer- and non-computer-based techniques.
  3. Students will be able to carry out different methods, techniques and skills in the field and laboratory to gather geological data and conduct experiments following HSE regulations.
  4. Students will be able to analyze geological data in situations in which they are appropriate via both paper- and computer-based techniques.
  5. Students will be able to generate geological interpretation and design engineering solution based on available data.
  6. Students will be able to perform time management, able to work individually and within groups during task completion and communicate effectively in oral and written forms.
  7. Students will be able to implement various geological concepts and engineering for scientific research, exploration, geotechnics, ground-water, and environmental purposes as a basis for their continuous learning and in accordance to common norm values (ethic) and legal practice.
  8. Students will have appreciation of both nationalism and global awareness relevant to their subject of studies.
  9. Students will have an appreciation of entrepreneurship.

Job Market Perspective and Practical Relevance 

Geological knowledge is applicable for many professional fields, such as academia, the energy industry (oil and gas, coal, geothermal, water, electricity), natural resource exploration, environment management, natural hazards, regional and urban planning, etc. In addition, geologist also really needed in the government for decision-making process.


In ITB, students complete the bachelor program after taking the minimum of 144 credit hours (Satuan Kredit Semester / SKS), offered in 8 regular semesters. Generally, all programs are conducted in two stages as follows:


The Common Preparatory Level (Tahap Persiapan Bersama, TPB) administered by the Institution for Common Preparatory Level (Lembaga Tahap Persiapan Bersama / LTPB). This stage initiates the undergraduate study by strengthening the comprehension of basic sciences and enhancing required learning aptitudes. The normal duration of this stage is two semesters, consists of 36 credit hours. However, students must complete this stage in 2 years.
