Bachelor in Civil Engineering


Civil Engineering Program is one of the oldest study program at Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Yogyakarta, Indonesia, since its establishment in 1946. It is organized under Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (DTSL), Faculty of Engineering which located in Bulaksumur Campus UGM, Yogyakarta. In particular, the program education prepares reliable, ethical, and professional civil engineering experts in the areas of Structural, Hydro, Transportation, Geotechnical, and Environmental Engineering. The research aims to support education and science, infrastructure technology, especially at the level of planning, design, implementation, operation, and maintenance, also community service by involving all elements of the academic society and empowering the stakeholders. Within the program, graduates are expected to be ready to learn as leaders who have managerial capability and innovative in working as designer, manager, researcher, builder, operator or manager of civil engineering infrastructures.

Prior to ABET Accreditation, the program receives an “A” or “excellent” from the National Accreditation Board of Higher Education Institution in 1998, 2003, 2008, 2013 respectively and has been certified by ASEAN University Network Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) since 2011.
