The Undergraduate Study Program of the Geological Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering UGM was founded in 1959. Up to now, our study program has graduated more than 1700 geologists. Our graduates demonstrate proven excellence in contribution to the development of geology and geological engineering, not only in Indonesia but also in the world. Our study program has received several accreditations, such as from the National Accreditation Board for Higher Education (BAN-PT) with an A since 1997, the ASEAN University Network for Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) in 2011, and the Indonesian Accreditation Board for Engineering (IABEE) since 2018. We have also been selected as the Host Institution for Geological Engineering from the ASEAN University Network – the Southeast Asia Engineering Education Development Network (AUN/SEED-Net) since 2003.
