A. Body of Knowledge

Doctoral Program is a linear continuation of undergraduate and master programs are also an interaction of several disciplines that are formed in accordance with the development of science and the needs or demands special expertise that contributed to the original field of knowledge. Doctoral education implemented in the development of science that has an active research groups as supporting. Civil Engineering Doctoral Studies Program has five (6) areas of expertise, namely:

  1. Structural Engineering
  2. Geotechnical Engineering
  3. Water Resources Engineering
  4. Transportation Engineering
  5. Construction Engineering and Management
  6. Ocean Engineering

Thus, the Body of Knowledge (BoK) Civil Engineering Doctoral Study Program accommodates a variety of disciplines very specific depending on the area of ​​expertise and research topics. BOK is expected each area of ​​expertise can provide general competence of a doctor who is able to conduct research independently, understand ethics and morality in the development of science, and to produce the scientific work that reflects specific expertise and provide original contributions to the field of knowledge. Additionally, a graduate of the doctoral program must be able to carry out the transfer of knowledge to the scientific community. BoK that exist in every area of ​​expertise covers all the science in question is necessary in the life cycle stage of a physical infrastructure, namely sciences related to the planning, design, construction, and operation and maintenance (O & M).

B. Challenges

There are the challenges such as the ability of graduates of doctoral study program of civil engineering in-depth competence in specific areas of expertise are chosen and carry out research in the field of better independently and contribute to the development of science-related.

Based on the vision of Civil Engineering in 2025 from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE, 2007), the profession of civil engineering in the future should be able to accommodate the need for the issue of globalization, sustainability, advanced technology, and the increasing complexity of the problems that must be faced, with due regard to safety, health and welfare of the public. The need for civil engineering doctoral graduates to contribute to the field of civil engineering is still high with still a need for research and development activities in the field of civil engineering, mainly related to national issues in the development of infrastructure for improving the economy and welfare of the community. In addition, because the Indonesian region prone to earthquakes, the need for civil engineering doctoral study program graduates are able to perform related research stages of planning, design, and management of earthquake-resistant infrastructure is particularly relevant.

C. Accreditation or Curriculum Standards Reference

Currently Doctoral Study Program in Civil Engineering obtained accreditation A from the National Accreditation Board of Higher Education. As part of civil engineering world, the vision and mission of the profession of civil engineering globally adopt the ASCE’s Vision for Civil Engineering in 2025.

Many professional associations in Indonesia, in the field preferential civil engineering has been working to provide input to the current conditions, expectations, challenges and curriculum development. Benchmarking against other university curriculum abroad has always been done by any manager of expertise. There is no standard curriculum was out of accrediting institutions and associations that become special reference to the curriculum of Civil Engineering Doctoral Study Program.
