The International Program in Informatics runs the latest curriculum, namely the 2020 Curriculum. This curriculum fully implements the Freedom to Learn “Kampus Merdeka” policy in accordance with the Regulation of the Minister of Education and Culture (Permendikbud) Number 3 of 2020. Students can take a number of courses outside the program study, whether at UII or even at other universities, at home and abroad.
The main characteristics of the 2020 Curriculum are project-based learning, project integration between subjects, and various final tracks in the fourth year (Research, Community Service, Business Startup, Internships, and Study Abroad).
The focus of learning in the final year is more focused on these pillars: (1) learning to live together, and (2) learning to be.
For this reason, students are given the opportunity to have direct contact with the community, where they will later contribute.
In the final year, there are five tracks to choose from. These five tracks were chosen to accommodate different student preferences. The approach to these five tracks is designed to sharpen the fulfillment of learning outcomes.
The Department of Informatics strives to shape information technology solution enablers who is capable to act as system analyst, information technology solution designer and developer, equipped with the qualities of values-based leader, entrepreneur, and life-long learner.
The term ‘entrepreneur’ here is interpreted widely as a person with an entrepreneurial mindset, such as being open to ideas, innovative, taking risks/facing uncertainty, and never giving up.
UII-RMUTT student exchange has been a personally challenging experience but traveling is one of the best ways to learn. It was an experience of a lifetime.
Looking back at my time as a student who got an opportunity to get into Sakura Science Exchange Program 2019, I couldn’t be more grateful for all of the things that I’ve ever had with this experience of learning in a new culture and environment. Besides it’s a fully-funded exchange program, we were given any kind of activities, classes, and tour with our Host University, Hokkaido Information University.
