Profile

The Marine Engineering Study Program was established to prepare graduates to master competencies and be able to compete at the national, regional and international levels. Ocean Engineering Education ITB provides scientific provision (Body of Knowledge - BoK) which includes basic science and mathematics, basic engineering science, professionalism, application, and design (design) in the field of Marine Engineering which includes the principles of ocean waves, bottom acoustics. water, coastal protection, coastal structures, offshore structures, marine geomechanics, ports, marine modeling, coastal management and marine environment, marine energy, and marine engineering design. Structurally, the scientific fields of the Ocean Engineering Study Program are shown in Figure 3. The basic science & mathematics and basic engineering sciences provided are those in accordance with the field of Marine Engineering and support the application, design, and professionalism capabilities of the Marine Engineering field.

With this scientific provision, graduates of the Undergraduate Ocean Engineering Program are expected to be able to master basic knowledge to be able to enter the world of work or follow further education through mastery of prominent levels of mastery of knowledge in the form of knowledge followed by comprehension, application, and analysis. This picture depicts the level of mastery of science from an undergraduate program compared to a master's program in Ocean Engineering.

Vision & Mission

Vision

“To be a leading tertiary institution of Ocean Engineering in Indonesia and internationally respected, which plays an active role in bringing Indonesian people into a united, sovereign, and prosperous nation.”

Mission

  • Guiding the development and change made by the community through innovative, quality, and responsive educational activities to global developments and local challenges in the field of Ocean Engineering.
  • Carrying out undergraduate and postgraduate ocean engineering education programs based on research and development to produce graduates who are professional, superior, and innovative, and have reliable and dignified academic, industrial, and national leadership capacities.
  • Preparing graduates to be able to work in the field of engineering, conducting research, continuing education to a higher level, understanding the nature of lifelong education, and developing professional skills.

Challenges faced

Some of the challenges that will be faced by the Ocean Engineering Study Program in the next decade are:

  1. Indonesia is a maritime country that has a lot of marine potential to be developed so that it requires human resources in the field of Marine Engineering who master technology based on infrastructure and the physical environment of the sea.
  2. Indonesia's position, which is the meeting point of three tectonic plates, causes Indonesia's territory to be prone to natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis. This requires the Indonesian people to continue to develop science and technology to predict and prevent the adverse effects of disasters on society, one of which is done through the development of science and technology in the field of Marine Engineering.
  3. There is a danger of marine pollution due to excessive exploitation of marine resources, so it is necessary to develop the marine sector to plan and implement marine resource utilization activities in an optimal and sustainable manner.
  4. Oil and gas exploration activities in Indonesia are moving toward the deep sea which must be balanced by advances in offshore building technology.
  5. Energy needs that continue to increase and exceed oil and gas production so that new energy sources are needed that can be developed from the use of ocean currents, wind and waves as an alternative energy source.
  6. The emergence of the global warming problem which causes many environmental problems including the marine environment so that it requires the support of the development of science and technology in the field of Marine Engineering to reduce, predict, and prevent the bad impacts that arise as a result of global warming on the marine environment.
  7. The emergence of the global warming problem which causes many environmental problems including the marine environment so that it requires the support of the development of science and technology in the field of Marine Engineering to reduce, predict, and prevent the bad impacts that arise as a result of global warming on the marine environment.

Akreditasi dan Standar Kurikulum

The curriculum of the Marine Engineering Study Program refers to the criteria issued by the international Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology Inc., USA. In documents owned by ABET, there is a curriculum standard for engineering study programs including Ocean Engineering. Apart from referring to the ABET curriculum standards, the 2013 Curriculum for Marine Engineering also refers to the body of knowledge of the curriculum issued by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The Marine Engineering Study Program obtained international accreditation from ABET in August 2011. ABET Inc. is the accreditation body for engineering and technology courses in the USA and around the world. All of the leading engineering courses in the USA are ABET accredited. Founded around the 1930s, ABET is an independent non-profit organization (not a government body), a federation of 32 professional engineering associations and representation of about 1.8 million professional practitioners. ABET accredits study programs and not institutions.

Educational Goals and Outcomes of Graduates

  • Educational Goals
    The educational objective of the Undergraduate Ocean Engineering Study Program is to create graduates who are:
    1. Work as a professional practitioner in a specialized field of marine engineering which includes: underwater acoustics, coastal protection and marine environment, coastal structures, offshore structures, ports, marine modeling, coastal management and marine environment, and marine engineering design.
    2. Work professionally and ready to continue higher education in the field of Ocean Engineering.
    3. Behave politely, contribute to society, and be ready to achieve success in various worlds of work both on a national and international scale.
  • Outcome of Graduates
    The achievement criteria for graduates are the main basis for planning the 2013 ITB Curriculum. All Study Programs within ITB including the Ocean Engineering Study Program compile the criteria that graduates want to achieve after completing education in the study program. The achievement criteria for graduates of the study program will form the basis for the content and implementation of the 2013 curriculum.
