The Graduate Program in Earth Sciences at Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) offers comprehensive master’s and doctoral programs in various fields within Earth Sciences, including oceanography, seismology, and atmospheric science. Graduates of these postgraduate programs are equipped with a diverse range of skills and knowledge in disciplines such as oceanography, meteorology, geophysics, geology, earth physics, environmental science, and more. These graduates find themselves well-prepared for careers in both public and private sectors, specializing in fields such as geophysics, disaster management, public works, petroleum engineering, meteorology, environmental science, marine science, and related disciplines.
Program Content and Sub-Programs
The program covers a wide array of subjects, focusing on three main sub-programs: Oceanography, Seismology, and Atmospheric Science. In the Oceanography sub-program, students delve into the dynamics and physical properties of seawater, coastal dynamics, atmosphere-ocean interactions, marine industry or technology, environmental management, and the exploration of renewable marine resources. The Seismology sub-program emphasizes the physics of the Earth, with a focus on earthquakes due to seismic activity in Indonesia and marine geophysics to build and develop prospects from non-renewable resources. The Atmospheric Science sub-program explores the physical and dynamic aspects of the atmosphere, particularly in the context of climate and weather systems. Emphasize on issues related to the archipelago which forms an active convective area.
Fellowships and Scholarships for International Students
The program offers various fellowship opportunities to support students, especially international ones. The Ganesha Talent Assistantship (GTA) is one such option, providing financial aid and valuable experience (https://sagata.itb.ac.id/index.php/login). Additionally, the KNB (Kemitraan Negara Berkembang / Developing Countries Partnership) Scholarship offers a chance for international students to pursue their education at ITB (https://knb.kemdikbud.go.id/). These fellowships and scholarships contribute to the program’s diverse and inclusive student body.
