Double Degree Master Program
Computer Science and Distributed Software Systems
Universitas Indonesia (UI) – Technische Universität (TU) Darmstadt
Universitas Indonesia (UI) in collaboration with Technische Universität (TU) Darmstadt in Germany offers Double Degree Master Program in the field of “Computer Science and Distributed Software Systems”. This program is arranged by Faculty of Computer Science at UI and Department of Computer Science at TU Darmstadt, and regulated under Official Letter of Agreement No. 10/AOI/R/UI/2018. This program is reciprocally designed by acknowledging the education quality of both universities. All credits earned at the home university shall be transferred and approved by the partner university, and vice versa, under the mechanism of Block Transfer. Once this program is completed, students will receive two degrees from both universities: Master of Computer Science from UI and Master of Science in Distributed Software Systems from TU Darmstadt. This program is open for everyone who will apply and start master’s study at UI or TU Darmstadt.
The length of study for this program is two years: one year at home university and another one year at partner university. Students can choose to start the first one-year of their studies either at UI or TU Darmstadt by following the general procedures set by each university for the master program. Application for this double degree program shall be submitted after students successfully pass the entrance examination for master study at UI or TU Darmstadt, but before academic terms started in both universities, by contacting these program representatives:
For each one-year academic term in both universities, credits plan shall be designed based on students’ interests and competences by considering available courses at that academic term.
Schema 1: The first academic year at UI and the second academic year at TU Darmstadt
Student have to earn a minimum of 28 credits at Master of Computer Science program at UI before continuing to take another one-year academic term at TU Darmstadt.
|1||Universitas Indonesia –
Master of Computer Science
|14 Credits||Students have to take compulsory (core), basic and advanced expertise courses according to their research topics. Thesis proposal writing shall be initiated at UI.
28 credit points transferred from UI will be equal to 60 ECTS credits at TU Darmstadt.
|3||TU Darmstadt – Master of Computer Science||30 ECTS||Student shall take courses related to the field of Distributed Software Systems program at TU Darmstadt. Thesis shall be written under two supervisors from UI and TU Darmstadt
60 ECTS credits transferred from TU Darmstadt will be equal to 16 credit points at UI
Schema 2: The first academic year at TU Darmstadt and the second academic year at UI
Student have to earn a minimum of 60 ECTS credits at Master of Computer Science program at TU Darmstadt before continuing to take another one-year academic term at UI.
|1||TU Darmstadt – Master of Computer Science||30 ECTS||Students have to take at least 60 ECTS credits related to the field of Distributed Software Systems program at TU Darmstadt which will be equal to 16 credit points at UI.|
|3||Universitas Indonesia –
Master of Computer Science
|12 Credits||Student shall earn at least 24 credit points at UI which will be equal to 60 ECTS credits at TU Darmstadt.
Thesis shall be written under two supervisors from UI and TU Darmstadt
There are around 63 courses opened by both universities. Those courses are categorized into three areas of expertise at Universitas Indonesia and three areas of expertise at TU Darmstadt, such as:
Areas of specialization at Faculty of Computer Science Universitas Indonesia:
- Architecture and Infrastructure
- Software Technology
- Information Security
Areas of specialization at Distributed Software Systems Department TU Darmstadt:
- Formal Methods, Programming Languages, and Software Engineering
- Networking and Systems Software
- Distributed Systems
In each academic term, both universities will offer courses based on their capacities. Courses chosen by students shall be under their interests and competences by considering available courses at that academic term. Students shall discuss and decide their research topics with the program representatives at the beginning of their studies (or will better be done before submitting the application).
Students who want to apply for this program shall meet all the requirements below:
- Students apply for the first one-year academic term at UI (Schema 1)
- Graduated from undergraduate computer science- related program or Information System-related program
- PPassed the entrance examination of UI, called SIMAK UI, that consists of Aptitude Test (TPA) and English Test
- SIMAK UI online registration will be attached on Universitas Indonesia Official Admission Website: http://penerimaan.ui.ac.id
- Students apply for the first one-year academic term at TU Darmstadt (Schema 2):
