Since 2002, the Faculty of Computer Science Universitas Indonesia (known as Fasilkom UI) has been establishing collaborations with several partner universities to offer an International Undergraduate Program in Computer Science/Information Technology. This program prepares its students to become graduates who can tackle challenges in the era of globalization, compete in regional and international job markets, and be able to pursue further advanced degrees. The program is run by highly qualified and experienced lecturers in the fields of Computer Science and Information Technology from involved institutions.
Our partners currently include:
- School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.
- School of Computer Science and Information Technology, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), Australia.
- College of Engineering & Computer Science, Australian National University (ANU), Australia.
- School of Information Technology, Deakin University, Australia.
Fasilkom UI is one of the foremost institutions in Indonesia which offers degree programs in computer science and information technology. Beginning from its roots, dating back to 1972, as a center for computer science, Fasilkom UI has played a key role in developing information technology 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 universities. It is internationally acclaimed for its strength in teaching and research, and its qualifications are recognized worldwide.
The School of Computer Science and Information Technology at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology is a leading IT school in Australia, and aside from innovative and cutting-edge research, is well-known for its strong industrial links and balance between theory and practice.
The College of Engineering & Computer Science at the Australian National University is a leading center for research and education in Australia and committed to finding sustainable solutions to the world’s challenges.
The School of Information Technology at Deakin University offers a broad range of first-rate, industry-informed courses that give students the knowledge and skills needed to make a difference. These are supported through active research groups, centres, and partnerships, which produce globally-capable information technology graduates of the future.
