Organization

The Master Programme on Information Technology for Natural Resource Management is an international programme under the Bogor Agricultural University Graduate Programme which is carried out by SEAMEO BIOTROP

Goals

To train students to become experts in the application of information technology for natural resources management

Students

Graduates with background in agriculture, forestry, fishery, animal husbandry, biology, environment, geography, geodetic engineering and geology with knowledge in the use of computer. A reasonable level of English proficiency is required since a substantial component of the MSc program will be based on English. Student with less level of computer or English proficiency are required to take a 6-week prepatory course (English and computer) during July-August prior to the Masters Programme.

Facilities

Classrooms and laboratories are equipped with the most advanced facilities including multimedia, computer workstations, printers, plotters, digitizers, relevant computer softwares and local area network as well as full connections to internet. Automated Library with collection of books, journals, and CD ROMs are also available on the campus

Dormitories

International Linkages

The program is presently being reviewed by several overseas higher education institutions. It is expected that these discussions will lead education to collaborative programming whereby students in this Masters program will enjoy the benefits of an internationally accredited program. It is also envisaged that exchanged studies will be incorporated, whereby students from Indonesia and overseas will participate in field studies in each other's countries.
