- Elective courses of Scientific Computing, including: image processing, machine learning, and numerical computation of linear and nonlinear.
- Elective courses of Software Technology, including: cryptography and information security, system interaction, formal methods and techniques of compiler.
- Elective courses of Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems, including: microelectronics, digital systems design, embedded systems and real-time systems.
In addition, the teaching-learning processes also develops a variety of soft skills abilities, such as teamwork skills, research skills, creative thinking skills, and ethical skills. These skills are integrated together in Computer Science / Information Courses curriculum and implemented through group tasks, presentations, discussions, practical work to the world of industry or business, and others. In the first semester, each of college students must select all courses that have been listed. Later, the maximum number of semester credits that can be chosen in the next semester will depend on student achievement in the previous semester. Those students who have good achievement in the previous semester will highly possible to choose more semester credits than credits that have been listed for each semester. The curriculum is designed to be accomplished in 8 semesters (4 years). The offered courses are divided into the following groups:
|1||UI Compulsory||18||Courses that are compulsory for all undergraduate students of UI|
|2||Cluster Compulsory||5||Compulsory courses that must be taken by students who belong to a particular cluster (Science and Technology, Social Studies, or Health)|
|3||Faculty Compulsory||43||Compulsory courses that must be taken by all students of the Fasilkom UI|
|4||Study Program Compulsory||47||Compulsory courses that must be taken by all students in Information Systems study program|
|5||Elective Courses||21||Elective courses according to student’s interest|
|6||Other Courses||10||Elective courses that can be used to expand student’s insights beyond their scientific field|

- What are the differences between Computer Science and Information System Study Programs?
The Information System Study Program is purposed to give students necessary skills in order to efficiently run business by implementing information technology into business activities. Of course, technology is an important instrument to store, create, process, and distribute information. All computer science experts must possess those skills to determine the needs and figure out the optimum implementation plan for each organization.
Furthermore, not only must possess information technology skills, but also computer science experts must understand about management principles and business methods. Therefore, curriculum for Information System Study Program also includes material about business and management framework and software and computer hardware.
Graduates of this study program will have skills that is important for industry since a well-implemented information system is an important element to successfully run a business nowadays.
Computer Science/Informatics Engineering
Both Computer Science and Informatics Engineering actually refers to the same program. These two programs The two names usually refer to the same program. The scope of these program includes basic theory of designing algorithms which is the fundamental concept of developing a software and latest developments of robotics applications, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics and the rest of them.
In general, compared to IS/IT program, Computer Science Program have more scientific content, with more emphasis on theory, and the student would delve quite deeply into logic and mathematics.
Graduates from this program would possess the skills to design and develop software that can solve typical problems in the domain.
There are many significant new technologies that would not have been realized if not for continuous research by computer scientists, such as internet and the web, along with artificial intelligence. It would not be an understatement to say that this field is one that would continue to drive the world forward.
This program’s emphasis is the design and fabrication of computers and computing systems. In brief, this program would cover topics regarding computing hardware, software, communication systems, and the interaction between all those elements. The emphasis would be more on the practical, engineering side of computer system hardware; some courses regarding software design are still necessary in order to understand the interaction between hardware and software.
To put it another way, this discipline, while still covering theoretical fundamentals to substantial depths, is a more applied discipline than Computer Science. However, unlike Information Systems, the focus is less towards the subtleties of effective implementation and more towards engineering effective computing systems.
A topic in this discipline that has received quite a bit of interest is called Embedded Systems. This, in short, is the development of dedicated and thus better-optimized devices containing hardware, software, and mechanical parts in one installation. They are usually, in the larger scope of things, modules meant to accomplish smaller tasks within a larger system, such as electronic devices or complex control systems. Improving their performance would consequently make the larger system more efficient overall, and as such they rightly do warrant further study.
Note that in UI, as in most cases, Computer Engineering is an engineering discipline and is offered by the Faculty of Engineering, not by the Faculty of Computer Science.
