A renowned institution with longstanding expertise on business education in IndonesiaContact Us
Universitas Prasetiya Mulya recently launched its School of Applied STEM (Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The school will include undergraduate degree programmes in Business Mathematics, Computer Engineering, Energy Engineering, Food Business and Technology, Product Design Engineering as well as Software Engineering. Students undertaking the applied STEM programmes will put into practise elements of life and applied science and human innovation to produce technologically literate engineers and scientists. The essential skills and knowledge gained from STEM will shift Indonesia into a knowledge-based society that is increasingly interconnected to the global world.
The advancement of STEM education has been a priority for Indonesia’s government as the country looks to compete among its regional peers. Through its applied STEM study programmes, Universitas Prasetiya Mulya is set to produce ready-to-work graduates that can fulfil Indonesia’s needs for scientists, engineers and innovators. As such, the university actively forges partnerships with leading local and international companies as a means to hone in on soft and hard skills as well as exposing students to industry experiences early on; Universitas Prasetiya Mulya most recently initiated a partnership with Sinar Mas Land. The curricula offered to students will address real-world situations through a problem-solving process and therefore showcasing to students how their education can be applied to various industries. In implementing an applied STEM education, Universitas Prasetiya Mulya hopes to produce graduates that will become part of a STEM educated workforce that can meet the demands of business and industry in an increasingly technology-driven and complex economy.
A growing number of graduates from applied STEM-related fields will have greater influence to solve many of Indonesia’s issues such as food stability, climate change, environmental security, disaster mitigation, national security, and urban development and public health policies. This demonstrates the forward-thinking approach of Prasetiya Mulya in recognising the need for greater applied STEM education for Indonesia’s young demographic poised to lead the advancement of the country’s socio-economic development.
