Founded in 1959, Tarumanagara University is one of Indonesia’s longest standing institutions of higher education offering award-winning programs at both the undergraduate and graduate degree level. Tarumanagara University’s proven track record over the last five decades in creating the next generation of great thinkers now serves as the foundation to its most recent goal: implementing technology within its curriculum to propel Indonesia to the frontier of tertiary education.
Tarumanagara University offers 16 bachelor degree programs, seven masters degree programs and two PhD programs across an array of majors. In striving to provide the best standard of education to its more than 14,000 students, the university has adopted e-learning teaching methods to create an immersive out-of-class studying experience to support lectures led by a faculty of advanced degree holders. As such, Tarumanagara University has distinguished itself through the attainment of ‘A’ accreditation, an achievement that stands as testament to the quality of its wide selection of courses.
Tarumanagara University is also characterised by its commitment to research. Academics within the university are provided with direct channels to showcase their work through an all-encompassing E-Journal as well as print publications released in partnership with national centres for research. Going forward, the university will soon offer access to cutting edge laboratory facilities at a new campus in the fast developing satellite city of Karawaci. This expansion will only serve to strengthen Tarumanagara University’s well-established position as a private sector pioneer, trendsetter and force for innovation in higher education.

Thoroughly dedicated to exploring new avenues to further its standards of education, research and facilities, Tarumanagara actively sets about cooperating with universities globally. Representative of UNTAR’s success in partnering with fellow leaders of the global academic community is its previous collaboration with the University of Western Australia, Delft University of Technology, Monash University and current cooperation with Universiti Sains Malaysia, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak and Keimyung University. These partnerships take the form of dual degree programs, joint research initiatives, faculty/student exchange and training programs.
In addition to this, to widen the breadth of career opportunities available to students, UNTAR also collaborates with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and CPA Australia, as well as with multinational partners such as Ernst & Young and KPMG for recruitment and internship placements.
Tarumanagara University draws talented students from across Indonesia to its three campuses located in Jakarta. Campus I and II are both strategically positioned in West Jakarta providing direct access to public transportation links to and from surrounding residential areas such as Bekasi, Tangerang and Depok favoured among students. Close proximity to the capital’s central business district is to the advantage of the university’s professional graduate students attending evening courses. The university is currently developing a new, ultramodern 138 ha campus in Karawaci expected to feature the latest in research facilities and campus amenities; a move that will expedite the integration of technology within Tarumanagara’s already nationally recognized curriculum.
