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:
- Adaptability and active participation in overcoming challenges in one’s profession with learned physics principles and methods.
- Ability to progress a career and gain knowldege formally and informally.
- Ability to utilize scientific tools in observing, analyzing and understanding natural occurences, and to apply induction-deduction methods in research and community service.
- Ability to follow the development in one’s professional field and its interaction with the dynamics of global scientific, industrial, and daily advancement.
- 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:
- Ability of lifelong learning and adoption of the moral standards of an appropriate scientist in looking for the scientific truth. Acquirement of creativity, innovativeness, open-mindedness, and honesty with great sense of responsibility and work ethics.
- Ability to think logically and systematically to formulate and solve problems and to be aware of what people and nature need.
- Ability to creatively apply physics concepts and principles to work out conventional and unconventional problems.
- Ability to work individually and in monodisciplinary and interdisciplinary teams.
- Ability to adapt to scientific progress and workplace and to compete globally.
- Ability to master information technology and computational methods in research.
