The establishment of the Faculty of Computer Science (FASILKOM UI) stemmed from the founding of University of Indonesia’s Computing Centre (PUSILKOM UI) in 1972. This institution was established with the aim of developing the area of computer science in Indonesia.
The centralization of computer science related equipment and trained personnel in PUSILKOM UI over the next few years, along with the increased demand for graduates in the field meant that it was time for UI to create a program of study specifically in this field. 1986 saw the commencement of the undergraduate level program in Computer Science, with a masters program following suit in 1988. 1993 saw the formation of The Faculty of Computer Science; all of UI’s existing programs of study in computer science were then organized under this faculty.
Considering the rapid progress of ICT application in industry, Faculty of Computer Science UI opened Information Systems study program in 2007. Currently, the program has two main specializations, enterprise systems and information technology.
The pace of development in the fields of CS and IT during the past decade has been very rapid. Advances in CS and IT has also triggered development work in many other fields, resulting in the implementation of technology that profoundly changes the way we perform our daily tasks.
FASILKOM UI’s CS and IT undergraduate programs give the opportunity to high school graduates to obtain an education in both of these fields, in line with the community’s increasing need for young professionals with these skills.
With its 20-year history, this program has been honed into a solid program in terms of quality of instruction and the relevance of the material presented.

Some others work in the government / university, or continue to magister or doctor level. Several positions are available, such as: system analyst, IT manager, researcher, etc.
During the last decade, Information Technology (IT) has been undergone a dramatic advancement. Today, IT plays major role within the business and management of modern organization. This has brought increasing trends in demand of IT professional capable in assessing, building, and deploying IT infrastructures.
Postgraduate Program in Information Technology (MTI), under the administration of Faculty of Computer Science, University of Indonesia, established in the year 1996 has a mission to fulfill the supply-demand gap between the industrial need and the availability of IT professionals. As most of our instructor and present student came from different backgrounds in industry or scientific areas and are experienced in their respective field, during their course, students will get the benefit from the richness of disparity of real-world-knowledge.
Area of competence which this program aims are :
- The core knowledge and expertise in IT.
- IT integration in business functions.
- Analytical skill.
- Communication, interpersonal and teamwork skill within organization.
The MTI program is a 2 years master program with 40 loads of credit program. Upon completion, graduates will be awarded by the title " MTI" (Magister Teknologi Informasi/ Magister in Information Technology).
