Undergraduate Program in Information System and Technology

General Information

The study program of Systems and Information Technology is one of the new study programs in the environment of School of Electrical Engineering and Informatics, ITB. Systems and Information Technology was developed in anticipation of the extremely rapid development of information systems.

Information systems, as one of the academic field in the bachelor degree program, includes two main areas, namely those associated with the effort of:

  1. Planning, development, and evaluation of the system that becomes the solution to the problem of the information management for the organization, and
  2. Planning, development, evaluation of the management of information technology used for the purposes of organizational information systems.
As part of the process of social and economic activities boost, the world society has evolved to a society oriented toward the information, or even toward knowledge (knowledge society). Systems and information technology has become the determining factors in the dynamics of business also organization and community development in today's global life. Systems and information technology has become important parts of everyday life which includes science, engineering/design, technology, products, operational services, and management. The utilization of effective and efficient systems and information technology is an important element in achieving competitive advantage. Systems and information technology has been integrated in various aspects of life, ranging from business (Electronics-commerce), education and learning (e-education and e-learning), health (e-health), culture, transport, industry, tourism, environment, collaboration (collaborative working), to the entertainment sector.

Expected Competence Qualification of Systems and Information Technology Graduates In accordance with the study area and the challenges faced, the competencies that are designed to be held by graduates of Systems and Information Technology include:

  1. Understanding of the dynamics of systems problems (business, management, regulation).
  2. Systematic analysis and synthesis on a field of problem and solution-making in the form of design and implementation in the real life.
  3. Adaptation and interaction with user society.
  4. Mastery of interaction aspects in large (multi-dimension) systems.
Thus, those competencies are expected to be formed into the ability (skill), not only to develop applications of systems and information technology, but also to build the capacity of thinking and innovation to generate new opportunities in the development and utilization of systems and information technology.
