Geophysics Engineering is a science that studies the physical and dynamic aspects of the earth as well as data acquisition and processing regarding these natural phenomena. In Geophysics Engineering, students learn the development of technology for utilizing earth resources and the natural environment, as well as earth disaster management.

Research Topics
The Geophysics Engineering study program has four major study groups: exploration of earth resources; reservoirs, imaging, and data processing; and engineering and environment. Students are encouraged to learn the dynamics of the Earth. For example, the plates that make up the Earth are not static but move and shift slowly. We don't realize it because the shift is so subtle, but every year, there is a change in position. Then why are areas on Earth declared prone to earthquakes, and why are some not? What is the distribution of earthquake-prone points?

Students will also spend time in the laboratory besides learning earth science theory. The sciences studied in principle are all things related to the Earth and its solid parts. In the lecture process, students will also be familiar with some software that will help model phenomena that occur on Earth. When natural disasters occur, such as earthquakes, landslides, or broken plates of the Earth's crust, a Geophysics Engineering graduate is responsible for explaining how to deal with natural disasters using knowledge from the Geophysics Engineering department. What is meant by mitigation is prevention and efforts to minimize the negative impact of the natural disaster. Because as humans, we are unable to resist events, but we can seek supporting means to minimize their impact.

Career Prospect
A graduate of Geophysics Engineering has very broad job prospects both at national and international level, including: 
  • Government agencies: Pertamina, Department of Energy and Mineral Resources (Directorate of Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation, Directorate of Mineral Resources Inventory, Center for Geological Research and Development), BMKG (Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency), BRIN (National Research and Innovation Agency).
  • Private: Field of exploration, exploitation, data acquisition, data processing of Geophysical Engineering, consultants, etc. for example in some companies like: Caltex Pacific Indonesia, Elnusa Geosciences, Medco Energi, UNOCAL, British Petroleum,  PT Freeport Indonesia, Geo Services, Schlumberger, Total Energy, etc.
