CURRICULUM  2013

Currently, Department of Architecture UII run Curriculum 2013. This is the first curriculum designed for 5-year program consisting of 4-year Bachelor program as the Pre-Professional Program in Architecture and 1-year Professional Program in Architecture. Competences as defined by IAI. All of these criteria are distributed in courses in the Bachelor and Professional program. By the time this Curriculum is implemented in 2013, PPAr program is already established for a year. Therefore, some minor adjustment is carried out to match both programs.

Primary references in the development of this curriculum are:

1.    KAAB Conditions & Procedures For Professional Degree Programs in Architecture 2013

2.    Competences for Architects as stipulated by Indonesian Institute of Architects

3.    Charter of Architectural Education in Indonesia 2010

4.    Recommendation of IASA concerning National Competence of Architectural Higher Education 2012

Educational Objective

Educational Objectives to achieve in Curriculum 2013 are as follows:

·    To have excellent communication skills

·     To have comprehensive design skills in the level of medium size buildings

·     To have knowledge in building science and technology based on sustainable development

·     To have sensibility in socio-cultural context and marginal society

·     To have skills and ethics based on Islamic and universal values

Graduate Competence

After defining graduate profiles for both Bachelor and Professional programs above, Department of Architecture UII develop further competences to achieve in each course as derivation of educational objectives and graduate profiles by referring to International and National Standards.

a) International Standard of Competence

In formulating the graduate competence, Department of Architecture UII refer to KAAB Condition and Procedures for Professional Degree Programs (2013). KAAB define the detailed competence into Student Performance Criteria (SPC) consisting of 30 criteria classified into 5 categories including communication, cultural context, design, technical area and professional practice. These SPC are progressively ordered starting with the basic foundation of knowledge and technology, and expanding to the professional technical area and the role and the responsibility of architect in society.

As the SPC establish minimum achievement level for graduates of professional degree programs considered necessary of those intended to apply for license to practice architecture. Professional degree programs must prove that the graduates of the program successfully completed the compulsory courses to satisfy all the provisions of the 30 criteria.

The levels of achievement for each SPC are distinguished in two levels:

·      UNDERSTANDING: Students must acquire, comprehend, and be well acquainteto d with information. Students can correctly paraphrase or summarize information without necessarily relating it to other material or seeing its fullest implications.

·   ABILITY: Students must be capable of manipulating and relating specific information acquired to achieve tasks. Students should be able to select the correct information suitable to the given situation, and facilitate it to resolve the particular problems on hand.

More detailed explanation for the application of these SPC into courses is described in Student Performance Criteria.

b)   National Standard of Competence

Department of Architecture UII refer to National Standards of Competence as defined by IASA which adopt the UIA Charter for Architectural Education (2005) and Standard of Competence as formulated by IAI.

Clusters of Expertise and Laboratories

Laboratories are essential learning infrastructure for ADS courses for students to develope knowledge and exercise skills through practical works and experimentations. Each Laboratory may have different roles and varied methods in supporting learning activities in general or studio program in particular. While laboratories primarily concentrate on applying knowledge, Clusters of Expertise play more significant roles in developing knowledge to deliver in all courses.
