Master in Physics

The Master in Physics Program was established in 1990, based on the Decree of the Directorate of Higher Education, Ministry of National Education, Republic of Indonesia, No. 152/DIKTI/Kep/2007. In 2000 the National Accreditation Board of Higher Education accredited “A” for this Study Program according to Decree No. 025/BAN-PT/AK-I/S2/IX/2000. Based on Decree No.444/SK/BAN-PT/Ak-SURV/M/XI/2014, the Study Program remains accredited with A.

The MPPhy conducts education in Physics to produce:

  1. Teaching staff and researchers who can teach in undergraduate education programs in the field of physics and can plan and carry out research in the field of physics and its applications
  2. Researchers at research institutes who can design and carry out research in the field of physics and its applications
  3. The Professionals or experts in academia/research, industry, hospitals, and other multinational companies can learn and adapt quickly to the industrial work environment and solve problems in their work environment by applying physical science and scientific thinking

Master Program in Physics graduates who can think critically and creatively with a vital mastery of physics to be able to contribute to solving science and technology problems on a national and international level, build professional careers in fields related to Physics or Applied Physics, as well as communicate and collaborate as citizens world

  1. Able to conduct scientific research in one of the fields of physics and their application
  2. Able to apply physics concepts and their applications in solving a problem
  3. Able to analyze issues comprehensively related to physics and its application
  4. Able to formulate problems using physics methods and their application to solving the cases in their work field
  5. Able to produce valuable products related to physics and their application for contributing to the community
  6. Able to construct systematic reports and research manuscripts to be published in international or national publisher
  7. Able to present the results of work and research systematically in a global or national academic forum

The Master’s Program in Physics is organized into two terms (semesters) per academic year, where one period typically spans 16 weeks of educational activities. To weigh the load of courses offered in a period, UI employs a credit unit system known as “SKS.”  One SKS is equivalent to a 1-hour (50-minute) lecture followed by 60 minutes of structured learning activity (e.g., assignments) and 60 minutes of independent learning activity per week.

The by-course track created the curriculum to yield professionals or experts in academia/research, industry, hospitals, and other multinational companies. The graduate from this track can learn and adapt quickly to the industrial work environment and solve problems in their work area by applying physical science and scientific thinking. During the 1st and 2nd semesters, the student takes compulsory and elective courses on a fundamental concept of physics and its application for doing research in 3rd and 4th semesters. In the 3rd semester, students could attend an international forum and publish their articles in proceedings indexed by Scopus. The student can also publish their paper in the national journal with Sinta rank minimal 2.  The paper can be produced as a part of their research or work in collaboration with the lecturer.  In the 4th semester, the student performs a complete research methodology starting from literature review, proposal, experiment, and writing.

To develop student interests, they can take specialization that can enrich their knowledge and skills in researching a thesis. There are five specializations in the Master Program in Physics as follows:

  1. Theoretical Nuclear Physics, Particles and Astrophysics
  2. Condensed Matter Physics
  3. Instrumentation Physics
  4. Reservoir Geophysics
  5. Geothermal Exploration

In the by-research track, the curriculum was designed to accommodate a robust basic competency for performing research in physics. This track facilitates researchers from research institutes to have the ability to create and carry out research in the field of physics and its applications. Starting from the 1st semester, the student begins with the literature review in the early semester period and presents a proposal at the end of the semester. In the 2nd  semester, the students present the progress result of their research and publish a paper. In this scientific publication, the student can publish in the international conference indexed by Scopus or minimal of Nation Journal with Sinta Index 2. In the 3rd semester, the student must submit their research result in an international journal indexed by Scopus or World of Science. In the 4th semester (final semester), the student performs thesis writing and presents the final research result in the thesis examination.
