Undergraduate Program

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 SKS (216 ECTS) of coursework and other type of courses, including final project.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

To produce graduates who are capable of working professionally as researchers, educators, or industrial practitioners in physics and related fields, characterized by:

  • Mastery of physics knowledge and methodology, and the ability to apply them to various fields of work.
  • Mastery of the scientific method to observe, analyze, and understand various physical phenomena in the universe.
  • Ability to keep up with the latest developments in physics in relation to the development of science, technology, industry, and life in general.
  • Ability to communicate ideas both orally and in writing, and to take on roles and lead workgroups.
  • Ability to continue studies to a higher level.

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
