Undergraduate International Class for Computer Science

Preface

In 2002, Fakultas Ilmu Komputer Universitas Indonesia (Fasilkom UI) established a collaboration with the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at The University of Queensland (ITEE UQ) and the School of Computer Science and Information Technology Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT University) to offer an undergraduate International Class Program in Information Technology (IT) and Computer Science (CS).

This program prepares its students to become graduates who are able to meet the challenges in the era of globalization, to compete in regional and international job markets, and be able to pursue further advanced degrees. To achieve these objectives, the program is conducted by highly qualified and experienced lecturers in the fields of Computer Science and Information Technology from both institutions.

Fasilkom UI is one of the foremost institutions in Indonesia which offers degree programs in IT/CS. Beginning from its roots dating back to 1972 as a centre for computer science, Fasilkom UI has played a key role in developing IT in Indonesia, and continually delivers high quality education, research and services to meet the needs of its stakeholders.

The School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at The University of Queensland is one of the largest and most prestigious of Australia’s 39 universities. It is internationally acclaimed for its strength in teaching and research and its qualifications are recognized worldwide.

Why IT?

The era of IT:

Information Technology pervades our daily lives, every sector of business, and is set to play an even bigger role in the future

  • The need for IT professionals in the local, regional, and international job markets is very high

FAQ

  1. What is the difference between the International Class and Regular Classes in terms of study offered in the program?
  2. Answer:
    International Class Program will earn two degrees, namely Bachelor of Computer Science (S.Kom) from the Universitas Indonesia and Bachelor Of Information Technology (B.Inf Tech) from the University of Queensland (UQ).

    The curriculum is relatively the same, there are some courses that somewhat different due to adjustment to the University of Queensland. Yet, the substance is relatively the same.

  3. Regarding the requirement to continue to UQ, with minimum GPA 2.50 and have to qualify the prescribed TOEFL (IELTS 6.5 / TOEFL 570), what if the student is not eligible at the time he/she should continue his/her study to UQ? How many times they can try to meet the TOEFL requirement?
  4. Answer:
    There is no limit to try, just as of the period of study at the Fasilkom UI is 12 semesters at maximum.

  5. What if the students have not been able to finish their studies at UQ in the specified time? How long is the time limit or the maximum term that a student can enter if he could not finish study at UQ in 3 semesters?
  6. Answer:
    Total period of study in Indonesia and recognized UQ UI is 12 semesters.

  7. If the student can not continue his study at UQ because of financial problems, can he continue his study at UI? Although, as the consequences, he is not able to achieve double degree.
  8. Answer:
    No, but it is possible to continue to earn a degree at the UI as long as it can complement credits in other universities abroad that are recognized by UI (relatively equivalent with UQ).

  9. What is the procedure if there is foreign student who wish to study in International Class at Fasilkom UI
