Strategic Plan (RENSTRA)
Over the last 3 years, the performance indicators demonstrated a strong performance, reflected through the scores achieved exceeding 4 and surpassing the set targets. The results showed that there has been a generally positive trend in the performance indicators during the three years, although there was a slight decline in performance in 2022.
Specifically, a strong upward trend is observed from 4.72 in 2020 to 4.86 in 2021, representing a considerable growth amounting to 0.14, making 2021 the best performing year in the 3-year period. However, a decline in performance indicators scores was observed in 2022, with the score dropping to 4.66 due to several indicators not being achieved. Nonetheless, regular monitoring and evaluation of these unachieved indicators will be conducted to help achieve the set targets in the current year.
Analysis of Internal and External Factor
The Civil Engineering Department has achieved significant strengths in recent years which includes an increased number of Ph.D. holders, faculty members publishing research internationally and increasing research collaborations with both local and global partners. The study program has also made efforts to promote and improve research activities and academic environments with a focus on sustainable development goals and contribution towards the community and has been recognized by both local and international accreditation boards. The department is also working on improving the curriculum with stakeholders’, alumni, and internal community’s input. However, it is also observed that the department is still lacking in several aspects: low on-time graduation rate, a need to increase scientific activity and international research with industry-specific outcomes, a decrease in student intake, and a high percentage of low academic-achieving students.
The department realized that Indonesia’s construction industry is one of the largest amongst Southeast Nations, and that the university has a chance to tap into this opportunity. Coupled with the heightening demand for infrastructure expertise in the maritime sector and the university’s resources to equip students with the skills and connections, civil engineers are needed to support construction programs. On the contrary, the ASEAN Economic Community’s establishment may increase competition from foreign engineers, and the department may face information vulnerabilities which in turn hinder progress. Additionally, competitors may also attempt to follow suit in registering for international accreditation. With increased recognition and increased student intake, there could also be a decrease in the overall quality of the students and may also lead to the rise in the need to adjust the facilities and student-to-lecturer ratio.
Vision and Mission
The vision of the Civil Engineering program at BINUS University is to become a world-class program that fosters and empowers society through research and implementation of digital technology to achieve sustainable infrastructure in serving and building the nation. The mission of the program is to educate students to develop exemplary characters through a holistic approach that meets global standards, organize innovative and applied research projects to resolve the nation’s issues, encourage to serve community-based needs through sustainable technology development, and foster students as lifelong learners through self-enrichment in improving knowledge in civil engineering. The program also aims to be the main driver in enriching the BINUS Higher Education system by using Civil Engineering knowledge and applied technology.
