Doctoral Program


Our program’s goals, which are in line with ITB’s educational goals and based on ITB FMIPA’s (Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences) educational targets, are to yield a graduate who gives positive contributions and active cooperations to realizing a community’s aspirations (as a scientist, a lecturer, or a teaching staff at a university), has adequate resources to continue and finish one’s education, and to pioneer and lead an advancement in one’s community. The community can be a scientific community, a professional community, the general public, an intercultural community, a regional community, and the nation. We specifically aspire to educate graduates who possess the following qualities:

  1. Adaptability and active participation in overcoming challenges in one’s profession with learned physics principles and methods.
  2. Ability to progress a career by broadening one’s knowledge and following the state-of-the-art updates in one’s physical fields.
  3. Ability to contribute an innovation in research.
  4. Ability to pioneer and lead a move to improve a community.
  5. Ability to clearly communicate one’s thoughts written and spoken to scientific and non-scientific communities and to appropriately take initiatives and lead a team of relevant field.


The graduate is expected to possess the following qualities:

  1. Ability of lifelong learning and adoption of the moral standards of an appropriate scientist in looking for the ultimate truth. Acquirement of creativity, innovativeness, open-mindedness, and honesty with great sense of responsibility and work ethics.
  2. Ability to think logically and systematically to formulate and solve problems and to be aware of what people and nature need.
  3. A creative being who applies physics concepts and principles to work out conventional and unconventional problems.
  4. Ability to work individually and in interdisciplinary teams.
  5. Ability to adapt to scientific growth and workplace and to compete globally.
  6. Ability to master information technology and computational methods in research.
