Program / Learning Outcomes / Curriculum / Course Synopsis / E-Learning
Students enrolled in the Doctorate Program of Food Science in Bogor Agricultural University are opted to select one of the following schemes:
The Graduate school of Bogor Agricultural University allows doctorate students to take FST600 level courses. Students of Doctorate Program in Food Science could take Food Science courses (FSTcode >600) as their elective courses after consultation with the academic advisor and a consent from the course coordinator. Election of this course should be carried out only when they are deemed essential for the research with a maximum of 3 credits.
The curriculum for Doctorate Program in Food Science in Bogor Agricultural University consists of mandatory courses group from the Graduate School and Food Science Program including colloqium, seminar and disertation (31 credits). When needed, a student could also take elective course from Master Program in Food Science or other study program (maximum of 3 credits).
Requirement for Students with Master Degree in Similar Field
A study program can be considered as a similar field when its curriculum requires completion of at least one of the four pillars for food science, i.e. Chemistry of Food Component (FST510), or Advance Food Microbiology (FST520), or Food Process Engineering (FST530), or Food Molecular Biochemistry (FST540), or those considered equivalent at the consideration of the Food Science Program. For any candidate who is short of the four required courses, it is mandatory to take the equivalence courses amounted to 6 credits. Consideration and decision on the courses necessary for fulfilling the equivalent are conducted by Food Science Program prior to starting the first semester.
Mandatory courses from the Food Science Program for Equivalence (8 credits)
Requirement for Students with Master degree in Different Field
A Master study program is considered different from Food Science Program when the study program does not require any of the pillar courses of Food Science in their programs, i.e. FST510, FST520, FST530 or FST540 or equal courses as assessed by the Food Science Program. For these students, the requirement for Master Program is referred to the Ministry of Education and Culture Decree no. 212/U/1999, i.e., 52 credits, consisting of mandatory courses of the Graduate School; mandatory courses from Food Science Program and mandatory courses for Master equivalence (8 credits). Therefore, the elective courses amounted to 13 credits are to be fulfilled by 700-level courses of Food Science Program and a maximum of 6 credits from 600-level courses.
