By suitably adapting to the development of global biomedical engineering research directions, ITB Biomedical Engineering arranges several academics tracks in harmony with international higher educations, yet it still considers the facility owned by the institution and the possibility of their implementation in Indonesia. Undergraduate curriculum is designed to have 3 tracks that later may be expanded to be 4 or more tracks. The available tracks are as follows:
- Instrumentation, Imaging, and Telemedicine tracks;
- Cell and Biomolecular tracks;
- Biomedical Informatics tracks.
Body of knowledge delivered in Undergraduate Study Program consists of 5 main groups:
- Mathematics and basic sciences,
- Humanity and social science,
- Engineering science and design,
- Medical science,
- Biomedical engineering.
ITB Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate degree can be earned in 4 years after satisfying all 144 mandatory credits. Curriculum of the undergraduate is divided into two stages: First Year and Scholar Programs. The First Year Program is equal to other first year STEI students. All STEI students need to complete all 36 mandatory credits. The Scholar Program consists of 108 mandatory credits that can be fulfilled in 3 years.
|First Year Program||36||2 semesters|
|Scholar Program||BME Compulsory||87||6 semesters|
Each ITB Biomedical Engineering student is educated with CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, and Operate) approach. It means their academics and technical skills are developed with project-based training; by which students are exposed to a project in order to gain the skills of identification, formulation, analysis, design, and implementation. Students are encouraged to transform the design into product and to fluently operate the product. The curriculum also prepares the students to test their implementation against a standard (testing), overcome obstacles (troubleshooting), and comprehend maintenance skills (maintenance).
The CDIO concept describes process flow diagram in industry. For example, clinical engineers in health-care service provider (hospitals or clinics) are responsible for the instruments related issues and, thus, need to understand all cycles in CDIO. ITB Biomedical Engineering also facilitates an internship course that is worth 3 credits. ITB Biomedical Engineering affiliates with several local hospitals to accommodate the needs of CDIO concept implementation. It is expected that ITB Biomedical Engineering students can be ready to be a professional engineer and to pursue further higher education.
Undergraduate students are required to conduct a final project. ITB Biomedical Engineering makes sure that the environment is helpful enough for the students to explore many possibilities in their research. Students from different degree and lecturers are ready to assist and to give different points of view referred to their unique and different expertise. Adapted from Japanese work culture, final year students are placed in cluster rooms by research theme and have direct access to lecturers who work in the same room. Students are also supported by standard work facility, such as microscope, USG, portable ECG, and pulse detector.
Academics degree granted upon graduation is SARJANA TEKNIK (S.T.).
2016 Admission for Prospective Students
ITB Biomedical Engineering only accepts students from high school graduates majoring on science. There are two independent tracks of admission:
