Doctoral Program

FTUI currently managed the Doctoral Programs for the following seven study programs:

  1. Civil Engineering
  2. Mechanical Engineering
  3. Electrical Engineering
  4. Metallurgy & Material Engineering
  5. Chemical Engineering
  6. Architecture
  7. Industrial Engineering

FTUI Doctoral program was officially opened in 2000 with the opening of the Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering Doctoral program followed by the emersion of the Opto-electrotechnique and Laser Application study program into the Postgraduate Program of FTUI. The Mechanical Engineering study program was officially opened in 2006 while the Metallurgy & Material Engineering and Chemical Engineering followed in 2007.

And In 2009, respectively Department of Architecture opened the Architecture Doctoral Program. In 2011, the Opto-electrotechnique and Laser Application was closed and was emerged into the Electrical Engineering study program. Each Doctoral study program is headed by the Head of Study Program which is held ex-officio by the Head of Department in the Faculty of Engineering UI. The Doctoral study programs have one or more focus subjects to give a more specific knowledge on engineering field to all students of the program.

New Students Selection

Selection process for new students for the FTUI Doctoral Program is as follow:

  1. Pre-admission stage: future student is encouraged to informally contact their prospective Promotor or the Head of Department to further discuss his/her desired dissertation topic. This is important to make sure the availability of Promotor in accordance to said research topic. Communication may be done through email or face to face. The Head of Department and future Promotor then would discuss the student’s proposal internally.
  2. Future student should register online via and complete the required documents and prerequisites.
  3. Future student will then take the entrance examination (SIMAK UI) which consists of: (i) Academic Potential Examination and (ii) English Proficiency Test.
  4. The results of the Entrance Examination will then be sent to FTUI by the UI Entrance Examination Committee. These results will then be discussed in a Department Committee Meeting headed by the Head of Department to determine which students accepted, and the proposed research topic approved, and the availability of future  Promotor. If needed, an interview can be arrange with the future student to determine the suitability of  research topic, the compatibility with previous study field, and the student’s commitment to participate in the Doctoral program full time. Interview may be done directly or through email or messanger application.
  5. The outcome of the Department Committee Meeting will then be submitted to the UI Entrance Examination Committee to be announced.

Academic Counseling
Since the day a student is registered as student for the Doctoral program until the time that he/ she passes qualification examination, the student will be under the guidance of an academic adviser who the student expected to be their Promotor or Co-Promotor. Head of Department accepts a proposal of future Promotor/Academic Advisor from a committee in the Department. Once the student pass the qualification examination, the student will earn status as Doctor Candidate and the Academic Advisor’s status will revert to Promotor/ Co-Promotor.

Promotor and Co-Promotor
Promotor and Co-Promotor for Doctoral Program are lecturers or experts from related field and are assigned by Head of Department based on a Rector’s Decree to guide and advise a Doctor candidate in conducting research and dissertation writing. Academic Advisor consist of 1 Promotor and a maximum of 2 (two) Co-Promotors. Promotor is a first chair Advisor who holds an academic degree of Professor or Doctor and a minimum of Senior Lecture academic position; has a relevant expertise in the field which the student’s dissertation topic is; and is acknowledge as a full time faculty at the Universitas Indonesia.

Co-Promotors are the Promotor’s companions who act as second and/or third chair advisor who hold academic degree of Doctor or Senior Lecturer. Co-Promotor from outside of the Faculty of Engineering UI must have the approval from the Promotor. Promotor and Co-Promotors are appointed by the Rector based on the proposal submitted by the Dean which are also based on suggestions from the Head of Department after the student has pass the qualification examination. The appointment must be done at the latest 1 (one) semester after the qualification examination. A change of Promotor/Co-Promotor must be proposed by the Dean to the Rector based on a proposal from the Head of Department.
