The Faculty of Biotechnology has one Study Program, the name is Biology. The Biology Study Program has the objective of educating students to enable them acquire knowledge and understanding of biological processes in general and industrial development and food production in particular, underpinned by a deep sense of awareness of environment and natural resources conservation.

The Faculty of Biotechnology is based on the Competence-based curriculum. On completing the course load of 144 credit points, a student is awarded the under graduated degree of technobiology (Sarjana Sains/ S.Si).

Like other programs, the Biology Study Program is based on the three pillars that underpin higher education in Indonesia, which are research, teaching, and serving the community. Program content are driven by and developed in accordance with science interests of the faculty, the most recent knowledge developments, and national development needs. All the above have been crystallized into the several specializations.

  1. Industrial Biotechnology. This program specialization orientates and prepares the student who specialize in it, with in-depth knowledge and competence in the process and development of environment-and-bio-resource-based industries.
  2. Environmental Biotechnology. This program specialization orientates and prepares students with knowledge and competence in the technology to conservation of natural resources, bio-diversity, and environment.
  3. Food Biotechnology. This program specialization orientates and prepares students with in-depth knowledgeable and competence in food-diversity technology, especially in the development and improvement of nutritions in raw food materials.

Upon completion of sufficient education and training in any one of the three specializations above, graduates of the Faculty of Technobiology are expected to possess unique competences that are on high demand in industries. It is such a qualities that make UAJY graduates hot ‘commodities’ for man hunters in the job market.

The increasingly border less world creates various challenges and opportunities for everybody, graduates inclusive. With the advent of freedom of capital and labor which will, sooner or later, follow the liberalization of goods and services, and investment, job opportunities will no longer be limited to the domestic economy, but the al the ten ASEAN member nations (2015), later on to the vastness of Asia and pacific region (2020), and in more than 200 nations the world over as countries gradually complete the various liberalizations under WTO framework.

Responding to such a prospect, UAJY considers it as an obligation to enable its students acquire capabilities, competence, and knowledge which will enable them to compete with graduates from other universities, in Indonesian and abroad.

In that light, Universitas Atma Jaya Yogyakarta offers international classes in the following Study Programs:

  1. International Business Management Program (IBMP), Faculty of Economics
  2. International Financial Accounting Program (lFAP), Faculty of Economics
  3. Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering
  4. Industrial Engineering, Faculty of Industrial Technology

International classes use English as medium of instruction, but are based on the same curriculum used in regular classes. Each class, in average, has fewer number of students than in regular classes. This enhances individualized learning within the context of group learning, which provides the student the requisite environment to acquire an effective education.

International classes demand higher English language proficiency than regular classes. To be admitted, an applicant is required to attain a minimum English language proficiency of 425 on TOEFL score (paper based) for Faculty of Economics and Faculty of Engineering and 425 on TOEFL score for Faculty of Industrial Technology or its equivalent.

International classes offered are on high demand, a fact attested by the growing number of applicants every year. High competitiveness for ‘slots’ in international classes translates into higher admission academic requirements than in regular programs. For the sake of clarity, it must be emphasized here again that proficiency in English language is a non negotiable requirement.


Credit Transfer Program (CTP)

Credit transfer program is designed to allow UAJY students to take several subjects and internship in a partner university. More importantly this program mainly motivates students UAJY to get an international learning experience overseas. In this program, UAJY students can get international learning experience as well as a broader perspective of knowledge and network.

UAJY credit transfer program (CTP) is a short-term study program offered to all business students. This program is offered to undergraduate students only. It is expected that international class students participate more actively in this program.

Basic Features of CTP:

  1.   Involve both incoming and outgoing students;
  2.   Involve at least the reciprocal waiving of tuition fees for courses, approved by the two institutions;
  3.   Cover only credits of courses that are agreed by the two institutions to be transferred;
  4.   Exchange students attend full time in country academic program at the host institution at least one semester and no more than two semesters;
  5.   Subject to satisfactory academic progress, a student will receive the applicable credit towards the award for which they are studying at their home institution;
  6.    Only students from the two institutions who are approved by persons with authority from the respective institutions are eligible to undertake the CTP;
  7.   Outgoing students from the two institutions remain enrolled in their own institutions and liable for any tuition fees or student contributions so that the host institution is able to waive tuition fees for incoming students from the home institution;
