Program Structure and Contents (Curriculum) The curriculum consisted of 52 required courses (138 course credits) and 3 elective courses (6 course credits). Thirty-three of the courses are engineering and mathematics courses. The courses are structured into 8 semesters.
Teaching and Learning Strategies Teaching and learning strategies applied in each course are designed based on the learning outcomes supported by each course. These include lectures and discussions which are intended to introduce students to theoretical concepts/principles, laboratory and field experiments to provide hands-on-experiences to students, and independent and group assignments. In all of these strategies, student-centered approached is applied.
Student Assessment Student assessments are designed to measure the knowledge and skills acquired by each student based on the learning outcomes of the study program. These assessments include course assessments which are designed to measure the student’s mastery on the topics covered in each course. Course assessments are generally done in the forms of class assignments, laboratory works, quizzes, and exams. In addition to the course assessments, there is also a comprehensive assessment which is a part of students’ research project examination as a requirement for graduation.  
Academic Staff Profiles The academic staffs in the Agricultural Engineering Study Program are 18 which consisted of 13 Ph.D. holder (4 professors) and 5 master degree holder (3 are currently pursuing doctoral degree). The expertise and research interests of the academic staffs can be broadly grouped into 4 fields, namely Postharvest Technology and Food Processing (7 academic staffs), Soil and Water Engineering (6 academic staffs), Agricultural Machinery (3 academic staffs), and Instrumentation and Control (2 academic staff).
