Doctor of Geological Engineering


Homepage : http://geology.fitb.itb.ac.id/

The Doctoral Program (S-3) Geological Engineering is prepared for those who want to deepen one of the branches of geology. The latest developments in geology are more towards the application of modern technology and approaches by using other natural sciences such as physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics. Therefore, the curriculum of the geological engineering master program is designed in such a way that it is very flexible and gives participants the freedom to develop their own curriculum program. However, there are also some compulsory lectures in accordance with applicable regulations (around 70% compulsory courses). This curriculum can also take advantage of the presence of foreign and domestic guest lecturers who are leading experts in their fields.

Education duration is 10 semesters with 47 SKS study load. There is a possibility that a student completes his program in 4 semesters. Compulsory courses, including a thesis, consist of 37 credits. The elective courses consist of 10 credits. The academic year starts every August / September.

The aim of this program is to develop the level of ability of participants to conduct research in one or more fields covered in geology and not solely in improving professions. Thus the aim of this program is more of a research degree than a professional degree.


Prospective participants are Masters (S-2) at home and abroad in the field of geology, geophysics graduates at home and abroad.
