Learning Outcome

The learning outcomes of study program comprises of general description attributed to ITB, referring to the KKNI and those of specific to the study program. The learning outcomes or general description according to KKNI are stated as follow:

  • Believing in God as a way of life
  • Posses a good moral, ethic and personality
  • Consider an attitude of a good citizen and feel proud as Indonesian people whilst supporting worlwide peace
  • Consider an attitude of cooperation, sensitivity and care towards other people
  • Have respect and appreciation concerning the diversity of Indonesian culture, personal beliefs, religion, rights, views, opinions and original inventions.

Learning outcomes are formulated based on the needs of Microbiology graduates. During the formulation process, benchmarking is performed with international standards such as ASM, and curriculums from microbiology courses of several overseas universities. In addition, throughout the formulation of the learning outcomes, inputs from stakeholders are also taken into consideration. These inputs are provided through questioners filled by alumni that are competent in the field of microbiology, and stakeholders that employ Microbiology graduates. Learning outcomes are formulated corresponding to the observation of the curriculum which is done every five years, as stated in the curriculum document. The socialization of new curriculum and learning outcomes are structurally performed to students, lecturers and other stakeholders. In addition, information regarding the curriculum and learning outcomes are also displayed on the official ITB and SITH website. Based on the new curriculum, the curriculum of 2013-2018, the specific learning outcomes of the study program can be grouped into four (4) categories. These learning outcomes are in accordance with requirement of job market and also refer to international microbiology association (American Society for Microbiology – ASM).
