Brief information of the Undergraduate Programme of Mathematics
The Undergraduate Programme of Mathematics at Universitas Gadjah Mada (in short: UP-Math) was officially established based on the letter of decision of Ministry of Education and Culture Republic Indonesia No. 53759/Kab, 19 September 1955, as the first programme at The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (in short: FMNS). The UP-Math is in the coordination of the Department of Mathematics. The department has three undergraduate study programmes (Mathematics Study Programme, Statistics Study Programme, and Actuarial Science Study Programme), one master programme in Mathematics, and one doctoral programme in Mathematics. There are six research groups (Laboratoriums) at the department: Algebra, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics Computation, Statistics, and Statistics Computation.
In running the programme, the UP-Math has formulated the programme objectives, the Expected Learning Outcomes (the ELOs), the curriculum, and the method of assessment to evaluate the achievement of the ELOs. The formulation has referred to Regulation of Ministry of Education and Cultures Republic of Indonesia no. 44/2015 on Higher Education National Standard, the recommendation by CUPM, IndoMS, the SIAM Report on Mathematics in Industry 2012, Decree of the Ministry of National Education No. 232/U/2000 and 045/U/2002, the suggestions given by alumni and stakeholders, the benchmarking results from some undergraduate programmes in mathematics universities abroad and some undergraduate programmes of Indonesian universities, national accreditation of higher education (BAN PT) document, AUN document, and ASIIN (Accreditation Board in Europe) document.
The existing curriculum is Curriculum 2016. It is designed for 8 semesters. To complete the programme, students have to pass at least 144 credits with minimal GPA 2.00 and the maximal total number of credits with grade D is 25%. All of information about the UP-Math is provided at the website: https://s1math.fmipa.ugm.ac.id/en/.
The UP-Math follows the schemes of the university for the entrance selection of the students (http://um.ugm.ac.id/v.2015/id_home.php?d=depan). For foreigners, application for the international students is provided at http://um.ugm.ac.id/v.2015.2/foreign/idx.php.
- Graduates of the UP Math have strong logical thinking, strong adaptive ability, and mathematical ability included mathematical modelling and information technology.
- Internationally accredited since 2018 by ASIIN (Accreditation Agency for Degree Programs in Engineering, Computer Science, the Natural Sciences and Mathematics) Germany.
- Accredited A (excellence) by BAN PT (Badan Akreditasi Nasional Perguruan Tinggi) since 1998.
- Professional faculty members which more than 80% are holding doctoral degrees, graduated from UGM, ITB, and from several universities abroad (Austria, USA, The Netherland, Singapore, Germany, Finland).
- Industrial internship programs in prominent companies such as Packet System Indonseia, IBM, PT. AIA Jasindo, Dentsu Aegis Network, PT. Bukit Asam, PT PFI Megalife Insurance, PT. Maipark, Bukalapak, The Djakarta Post, PT. Antam, PT. Timah, PT. Cybertrend Intra Buana, PT. Smart Data, Biro Pusat Statistik, PT. Sunlife Financial Indonesia, PT. Agriterra, PT. Bluebird, etc.
Considering the universality of mathematics, profession/graduate employment quite diverses. In general, the Graduate Profile of UP-Math is expected to work as:
- Academic staff
- Assistant Researcher
- Practitioners (Industry, Service, Government).
Based on alumni trace in the year 2018 (from alumni of the year 2012 – 2018), it is known that the alumni work in the field of:
UP-Math is a 4-year program; however, some students are able to finish their study in less than 4 year.
- The total number of credits is 144 credits, which is equivalent to 240 ECTS.
- Each year is divided into 2 semesters:
- Odd semester: August – January; lecture time: August – December.
- Even semester: February – July; lecture time: February – June.
The structure of the curriculum is as shown in the following table.
