Undergraduate Program

The Department of Physics, IPB University offers a comprehensive 4-year bachelor’s degree program. The graduates will be awarded a bachelor of science degree (Sarjana Sains, S.Si.) according to Indonesia`s curriculum of MBKM (Merdeka Belajar Kurikulum Merdeka) 2020 after completing 144 credits of coursework and other type of courses, including final project.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLO) 

The program learning outcome of Bachelor of Physics Program are:

  1. Mastering the knowledge of classical physics and modern physics concepts → P
  2. Able to solve basic problems in classical physics using the principles of mechanics, thermodynamics, electrodynamics and waves → KK
  3. Able to solve basic problems in modern physics using the principles of quantum physics, atoms, molecules, nuclear, particles and solid-state physics → KK
  4. Able to use analytical tools including mathematical, statistical and computational methods to solve physics problems → KK
  5. Able to use modern measurement tools and apply the basic principles of experimentation → KK
  6. Able to communicate both orally and in writing in expressing ideas about problem solving and using the basic principles of classical physics and modern physics → KK
  7. Able to work effectively both individually and in groups → KK
  8. Able to apply knowledge in physics to broader fields such as life sciences → KK
  9. Able to meet learning outcomes in the aspect of attitude (S) and general skills (KU) set by SN-DIKTI → S and KU


P = Pengetahuan / Knowledge

KK = Kemampuan Khusus / Special Ability

S = Sikap / Attitude

KU = Kemampuan Umum / General Ability


Courses provided by The Department of Physics, IPB University can be categorized into:
