Master’s in Engineering Physics (S2 TF)

The Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) Master’s in Engineering Physics (S2 TF) is a program that is designed to give advanced level engineering skills that are specific, based on current and emerging technological trends.

I. Introduction

Engineering Physics is a field of engineering that studies multifaceted physical phenomena. Engineering physicists have strong understanding of mathematics, science, and fundamental engineering with which they are able to analyze, design, and engineer.

Master’s in Engineering Physics program is a continuation of the undergraduate Engineering Physics Bachelor’s program, with a focus on deepening knowledge of fields that include Industrial Process Automation, Material Processing and Computation, Building Physics, and Lighting.

The new Lighting field of study is developed specifically for graduates of Interior Design and Architecture who are eager to complement their existing expertise with the technical aspects of Lighting.


To be a Master’s in Engineering Physics program that is recognized nationally, regionally, as well as internationally.


  • Provide an education that produces graduates who are able to independently design, operate, and analyze systems that involve multiscale technology and multifaceted physics. 
  • Provide a cohesive learning environment that is able to improve education quality, research, development, and professional services on fields that are related to engineering physics, which includes measurement and sensor systems, building physics and acoustics, material processing and computation, built environment physics, energy systems, and system automation. 
Purpose of Education
The main purpose of the Master’s in Engineering Physics program is to educate human resources in the attainment of knowledge and skills of research that is in alignment with level 8 learning outcomes in the Indonesian National Qualification Framework. Specifically, graduates of the Master’s in Engineering Physics program will at the very least have the following profile: 
  • Have the capability to improve themselves into successful professionals that holds competitive positions in industry, government, research institutions, or academia that is in-line with the engineering physics field of study. 
  • Have the capability to manage and develop research as well as expand the engineering physics body of knowledge that is beneficial to humankind and is nationally or internationally recognized. 
  • Have the capability to continue their graduate studies to pursue a doctorate degree or become a researcher who are able to develop the latest science and technology as well as to uphold professionalism, ethics, and the will to study throughout life. 

II. Competence of Master’s in Engineering Physics Graduates

  • Comprehensive and in-depth mastery of a chosen track of study in the Master’s in Engineering Physics program. 
  • Ability to design (identify, formulate and analyze problems, synthesize and evaluate solutions) a system. 
  • Ability to research independently according to scientific principles and methodology. 

The knowledge gained from completing an undergraduate program is sufficient to serve as the foundation to enroll in the Masters in Engineering Physics program, which provides four study tracks: 

Industrial Process Automation.
Designed to include the science and technology in every levels of the automation system hierarchy. The pyramidal levels depict the flow of information in industrial automation which is composed of the plant/field level, process automation level, business and management level.
Eligible undergraduate majors:
engineering physics, physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering.
Building Physics.
Designed to give a formal education that builds upon undergraduate level building physics, with the special purpose of improving professional skills in many physical aspects that are related to built environments, such as acoustics, thermal studies of buildings, lighting and building energy consumption, etc.
Eligible undergraduate majors: Any related science and engineering fields, including architecture.
Designed to give a formal education that is a continuation of undergraduate studies of lighting or illumination, with the special purpose of improving professional skills in the engineering and design of lighting systems, as well as the understanding of standards in lighting design.
Eligible undergraduate majors:: Any related science and engineering fields, including interior design and architecture.
Material Processing and Computation.
Designed to give advanced knowledge to students regarding all types of materials, processes and analysis, computation, design, and engineering through courses.


The Master’s in Engineering Physics program consists of courses with a total of 36 credit (15 mandatory courses credit and 21 electives credit). The curriculum can be completed in four semesters where the semester structures can be seen here.
