3+1 Curriculum for Undergraduate Programs
In the year 2014/2015, BINUS UNIVERSITY started implementing 3+1 curriculum for all undergraduate programs, which allow students to have a one-year enrichment program. The program consists of 2 semesters with 8 credit units to 16 credit units each. Students may choose 5 tracks for each semester, namely 1) Internship Track; 2) Entrepreneurship Track; 3) Community Development Track; 4) Research Track; 5) Study Abroad Track. By the end of each semester, each student will submit an enrichment report and assessment related to technical competencies in his/ her disciplines and soft skills.
Considering the urgency of enrichment program to achive learning outcomes, it affects all courses in enrichment program to become one entity. It means that if there is one or more than one failed courses in enrichment program, the whole courses in enrichment program will also be failed.
Internship Track :
The aim of Industrial experience track is to facilitate students in the real industrial setting. By following this track, students will work full time and have exposures to the industrial experience in multinational or top national companies with study program related to job task. The assessment for this track will involve both industry supervisor and faculty member supervisor to give the assessment for students. Through this program, students will also have opportunities for future employability/job offer, and talent grooming (e.g. MT Program, LD Program).
Entrepreneurship Track :
This track provides students with real experiences to become entrepreneurs through business start-ups. Students will come to the office at BINUS Campus from 09.00 – 18.00 from Monday to Friday. The Office will be supported with Coaches, Content & Administration officers, and Program Officers. Student’s Entrepreneurship track who’s ready with the prototype product to be monetized will be supported internally with links to industry within the program. External supports will be provided by Mentors from industry related to the business Start Up.
Community Development Track :
Community Development is a program conducted by students to achieve the 5th mission of BINUS UNIVERSITY: to improve the quality of life of Indonesian and global community. These initiatives include: 1) Scheduled Voluntary Services incorporated in a Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) or a Social Foundation’s Program; and 2) Community Development activities to improve community’s ecosystems. Apart from utilizing their knowledge to design and implement a system in communities (excerpted from their technical competence and soft skill), students will also have direct interaction with local people as well as enjoy the opportunity of living in with them.
Research Track :
This track allows students to get involved in conducting research related to the study program scope. Student will be attached to a team that conducts a research as a junior researcher. The research itself can be conducted in BINUS or outside BINUS (e.g. government research institution, R&D unit in a company). Students can start from writing a research proposal or jump directly into an ongoing research activity in that institution (not necessarily developing a research proposal).
Study Abroad Track :
This track will give students opportunities to have study experience in foreign countries. Courses that are taken by students are transferred directly to the respective courses in BINUS transcripts. Through this track, students will be able to expose themselves to international experiences, such as personal development, academic development, and cultural value.
