2. Program and Curriculum

  • For Master degree programs, prospective students can choose from the following options:
Master Program Option Option Description
Mechanical Engineering Design, Dynamics, and Control This branch of mechanical engineering field focuses on the design and innovation of mechanical system with a concern in structures, dyamics, vibration and its control system. The competencies are applied to various industrial fields such as: oil and gas, process, energy, transportation (ground and railway), sports, and medical sciences.
Sustainable Energy Engineering In this Option, students will learn more about energy engineering process that prioritizes sustainable aspects. Students will focus on studying the energy generation process that relies on new and renewable energy sources, and engineering techniques to improve efficiency in existing systems.
Production Engineering and Automation In this option, students will concentrate on automation processes and production system engineering which are oriented towards continuous improvement of product quality following the times.
Aerospace Engineering Flight Mechanics In Flight mechanics option, the aspects of physical phenomena and the control of flying vehicles are learned, applied to complex aerospace systems with the objective of producing high performance safe air and space vehicles.
Aerodynamics and Propulsion Aerodynamics and Propulsion option focuses on aerodynamic science, propulsion/prime mover and its control systems, that is not only applicable to air and space vehicles, but also aerodynamic analysis and control design of ground vehicles.
Design Aircraft, Operation, and Maintenance Here, comprehensive advanced knowledge is discussed for the objective of improving the safety and efficiency of global air transport and seek to minimize its social impacts (particularly on the environment) through innovations in monitoring, optimization and systems analysis and design of aircrafts and air transport system.
Lightweight Structure Development of science and technology related to structural integrity, material utilization, and advanced manufacturing processes. We carry out the process of design, analysis, modification, and repair of lightweight structures on transportation and industrial equipment supported by developing numerical and experimental methods.
Material Science and Engineering Material Science and Engineering The engineering field in Materials Science and Engineering includes the knowledge from materials science to answer the needs and demands of society for materials. Meanwhile, the science field presents in the form of basic knowledge of materials is an attempt to determine the relationship between material structure and its properties.
  • In order to graduate from the Master degree program in FMAE, students must pass the minimum of 36 credit units, including thesis
  • Doctoral programs in FMAE ITB consist of 4 stages, namely Preparation/Qualification Examination, Proposal Writing and Defence, Research Projects, and Dissertation writing, Defence and Ph.D promotion, with a minimum of 42 credit units
