Learning Outcomes

The learning outcomes of the Microbiology Study Program are based on the general standards applied at ITB, referring to KNNI and specific points based on the study program. Standard learning outcomes according to KNNI are:

  • Have faith in God Almighty
  • Have good morals, ethics and personality in completing their duties
  • Act as a citizen who is proud and loves the nation and supports world peace
  • Able to work together and have social sensitivity and high concern for society and the environment
  • Appreciate the diversity of cultures, views, beliefs, and religions as well as other people's original opinions/findings

The Learning Outcomes are arranged based on the needs of graduates of the Microbiology Study Program. During the drafting process, learning outcomes are compared with international standards such as ASM (American Society for Microbiology), and the curriculum of microbiology study programs at universities in foreign countries. In addition, during the process of preparing learning outcomes, input from stakeholders is also taken into consideration. This input was provided through a questionnaire filled out by alumni who work in the field of microbiology and also the industry that employs microbiology graduates. Learning outcomes are prepared based on curriculum observations which are carried out every 5 years as mandated in the curriculum. Socialization of the new curriculum and learning outcomes is carried out to students, lecturers, and other stakeholders. In addition, information about the curriculum and learning outcomes is also posted on the official websites of ITB and SITH.

Based on the new curriculum, the 2013-2018 curriculum, the specific learning outcomes of the study program can be grouped into four (4) categories. These learning objectives are in accordance with industry needs and also refer to international microbiology association standards (American Society for Microbiology – ASM).

In the category of conceptual and comprehensive competencies, students must be able to express an understanding of the basic concepts of microbiology, specifically:

  • knowledge of fundamental science in mathematics and natural sciences related to biology
  • evolution of prokaryotic cells, methods of adaptation, survival and diversity, including their impact on the environment
  • relationship between cell structure and function
  • metabolic processes related to the use of energy and materials for survival, growth and interaction with the environment
  • the flow of genetic information and its reactions to environmental changes
  • the microbial systems in terms of diversity and ecosystem dynamics
  • the effects of microorganisms in our life

Learning outcomes in the category of lab skills are demonstrated by students with the ability to:

  • Apply equipment and methodologies in the microbiology lab
  • apply molecular tools and methodologies
  • apply knowledge about lab safety by using protective equipment and following safety procedures

Learning outcomes in the scientific skills category are demonstrated by students with the ability to:

  • express scientific processes and have the ability to apply qualitative and quantitative reasoning in communicating and collaborating with other fields
  • explain the relationship between science and society

Learning objectives in the category of social skills are shown by students who can:

  • demonstrate the skills to communicate effectively and work in groups
  • express awareness of the importance of lifelong learning
