A. Body of Knowledge

To prepare graduates of Ocean Engineering Master Program competencies and able to compete in both national and international scale, Ocean Engineering Master of ITB provide supplies of science (body of knowledge) which includes the science of advanced mathematics, advanced ocean engineering and research ocean engineering that includes the principles of ocean as follows: waves, underwater acoustics, coastal protection, coastal structures, offshore structures, geo-mechanics ocean, harbor, ocean modeling, coastal management, ocean environmental control, and ocean energy. Structurally scientific field of Ocean Engineering Master Program is shown in Figure 6 below.


Ocean Engineering Master Program is expected to create graduates who are able to master of  science to plunge into the world of work or higher education to follow through levels of mastery are more prominent on the analysis followed by the application level and synthesis. Differences in the level of scientific mastery of undergraduate and master levels of education are as follows:



Levels Mastery of Science
Knowledge Comprehension Application Analysis Synthesis Evaluation
Undergraduate X X X X    
Master X X X X

B. Challenges

Some challenges faced by Ocean Engineering Program in the next decade are as follows:

  1. Indonesia is a maritime country that has abundant ocean potential to be developed so that it requires human resources in the field of Ocean Engineering which include mastering technology based on infrastructure and the physical environment of the sea.
  2. The position of Indonesia which is the confluence of three tectonic plates that caused the Indonesian territory becomes prone to natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis. It demanded the Indonesian people to continue to develop the science and technology to predict and prevent the adverse effects of disaster for community, one of which is done through the development of science and technology fields Ocean Engineering.
  3. The existence of the danger of ocean pollution due to the exploitation of ocean wealth that is not wise. Thus the necessary development of the ocean sector to do the planning and implementation of optimal utilization of ocean resources and sustainable manner.
  4. The oil and gas exploration activities in Indonesia are moving toward deep water that must be matched by progress in the field of building technology offshore.
  5. The need for increased energy and oil and gas production exceeded that required new sources of energy that can be developed from the use of the energy of ocean currents, wind and waves as an alternative energy source.
  6. The world trend is increasingly integrated with the entry into force of the free market that requires support of ocean transport system must be supported by ocean infrastructure.
  7. The emergence of global warming issues that cause many environmental problems including ocean environment that requires the support of the development of science and technology to reduce the field of Ocean Engineering, predict, and prevent the adverse effects arising as a result of the global warming on the ocean environment.

In addition to the above reference documents, preparation of Ocean Engineering Curriculum 2013 also based on the input of stakeholders consisting of faculty, students, alumni, the graduates of ITB Ocean Engineering, and Industrial Advisory Board (IAB). Input is done to improve the quality of graduates Ocean Engineering Program, where every five years to evaluate the curriculum follows the curriculum evaluation ITB. Networking mechanism input from stakeholders conducted by the survey through questionnaires and meetings in a discussion forum. Crawl input from stakeholders to Ocean Engineering Master Program of performed in conjunction with input netting for Undergraduate Program. Some entries associated with the Master of which are input related to an increase in soft skills, including the ability discussions, presentations, and write in English, leadership, and creativity, as well as feedback on the addition of the course material and the addition of new courses that are a skill-up.
