(*) according to Permen Ristek dan Dikti No 44 Tahun 2015 tentang Standar Nasional Pendidikan Tinggi  and PP No 8 Tahun 2012 tentang Kerangka Kualifikasi Nasional Indonesia .
The number of semester credit unit or satuan kredit semester (SKS) which are obliged to be passed to complete the education in the Nuclear Engineering Study Program is 144 according to the minimum requirement stated in Permen Ristek & Dikti Nomor 44 Tahun 2015, with composition:
- compulsory courses which consist of 120 SKS, and
- consentration and freewill courses which consist of 24 SKS
There are 21 courses and 3 lab works weighing 58 SKS (40,28%) from 144 SKS, which has equal content and quality for both Bachelor Study Programs managed by the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Engineering Physics, Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Gadjah Mada, i.e. Bachelor of Engineering Physics Study Program and Bachelor of Nuclear Engineering Study Program.
Compulsory course: Religion (UNU X00X), Pancasila (UNU X01X), Citizenship (UNU X01X) are compulsory courses which is mandated by UU No 12 Tahun 2012. Bahasa Indonesia which is also mandated by the same regulation is integrated in Research Methodology course as a component in scientific writing.
Bachelor of Nuclear Engineering Study Program curriculum for first year students (Semester I and Semester II) contains 16 SKS which gives foundation of mathematics (16 SKS), fundamental science and experimental experince (16 SKS). Related engineering topics including engineering science knowledge and engineering design is given in the second and third semester with amount of 33 SKS in total.
Nuclear engineering course group is arranged and aligned with graduate competency output targets such that graduates have opportunity to develop themselves to pursue career in nuclear power generation technology, nuclear process technology (including applications of radiology in industry), nuclear instrumentation technology, and medical physics.
Experimental experience in the field of engineering science and nuclear engineering is given by 6 lab works and 1 computer programming exercise. Supporting general knowledges for engineer profession are also distributed in several semesters. These courses are expected to support improvement of communication skill.
Experience in the design of nuclear system is provided by course Kerja Praktek or Practical Work / KP Klinis or Clinical Practical Work (TKN 213202), Final Year Project (TKN 214201) and Thesis Writing (TKN 214202).
Topics aimed to go deep into specialization are served in optional course group according to study program development direction, i.e. Teknologi Energi Nuklir (TEN) or Nuclear Energy Technology (NET) courses and Fisika Medik (FM) or Medical Physics (MP). There are 20 SKS-worth courses for TEN, 20 SKS-worth courses for FM, and 30 SKS for other optional courses, so that there are 70 SKS available in total to comply minimum of 24 SKS which is obligatory for bachelor graduation. Optional or freewill courses may be taken from courses available in the Bachelor of Engineering Physics Study. In accordance with the terminology “Freewill Courses”, students is given a full freedom to combine those options freely (courses can be consisted of different courses groups). Students who are interested to pursue further expertise in TEN or FM are suggested to take the whole courses in that course group and entitled to receive surat keterangan (SK) or additional letter from the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Engineering Physics, Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Gadjah Mada which states a student has taken that area of expertise.
