Berapa sih biaya masuk ITB tahun 2011?berapa sih biaya total belajar di sana nantinya?

Jadi, biaya pendidikan di ITB ada dua:
1. Biaya pendidikan di muka (BPM). dibayar satu kali di awal masuk ITB. Besarnya maksimal Rp55.000.000 (ada diskonnya juga lho. makanya baca sampai akhir ya)
2. Biaya pendidikan per semester (BPP). dibayar setiap awal semester kuliah. Besarnya Rp5.000.000/semester.

Waduh, kok mahal banget ya biayanya? ada gacaranya biar bisa bayar murah?

Hoho,, tentu ada sodara-sodara. Begini, ikutin tipsnya ya:
Ternyata kita bisa meminta diskon Biaya BPM yang 55juta itu, bahkan tersedia diskon 100% bagi lebih dari 600 orang. Begini caranya:

1. Download dan isi formulir permohonan diskon BPM di [link ini] atau di sini : http://www.itb.ac.id/usm-itb/form-bpm-2011-t.pdf
2. Pada bagian permohonan subsidi, jangan lupa centang/pilih yang 25%, 50%, 75%, atau yang 100%
3. kirim formulirnya. Boleh lewat fax, email, atau pos, ke alamat:

3. Siapkan bukti-bukti yang mendukung. Bukti-bukti ini diserahkan saat pendaftaran mahasiswa baru nanti (setelah pasti diterima). Misalnya:

– Slip gaji orang tua (kalau ada. kalau ga ada bikin sendiri aja, tulis aja gaji yang kecil. hehe,, tapi jangan boong yak )
– Surat keterangan RT/RW daerah asal. Jadi berupa keterangan kalau keluarga tidak mampu membayar banyak untuk masuk ITB.
– Surat keterangan kondisi keluarga. Misalnya jumlah keluarga dan kondisi pekerjaannya. Lebih direkomendasikan bagi anda yang punya banyak adik-adik yang masih sekolah, jadi terlihat kalau tanggungan beban orang tua itu besar sekali, hoho  .

4. Spesial: Bagi calon mahasiswa yang sejak awal hanya berminat untuk memilih Program Studi Astronomi (FMIPA), Program Studi Meteorologi (FITB), dan/atau Program Studi Oseanografi (FITB) dapat mengajukan permohonan Beasiswa Minat berupa subsidi 100% BPM. Untuk itu pemohon harus menyerahkan Formulir Pilihan Program Studi ITB yang dapat diunduh dari situs http://www.itb.ac.id/usm-itb/form-prodi-2011.pdf paling lambat tanggal 24 Mei 2011, pukul 15.30 WIB. Formulir yang telah diisi lengkap dikirimkan melalui kantor pos, faksimili, e-mail, atau diserahkan sendiri ke alamat:

Faks.: 022-2508519
E-mailusmitb@pusat.itb.ac.id

5. Kalau BPM sudah “beres”, maka tinggal mencari beasiswa untuk membayar BPP. Di sini banyak tersedia beasiswa, misalnya beasiswa ITB untuk semua (BIUS  http://www.itbuntuksemua.com ).
6. Jangan lupa berdoa kepada Allah SWT agar diberikan rejeki lebih biar bisa kuliah di ITB. Syukur-syukur kalo ga perlu minta diskon biar masuk kampus itu, apalagi kalau bisa memberikan sebagian rezeki kita buat meringankan beban yang lain. InsyaAllah pahala lho

OHisashiburi… Concrete experiment.

It has been a while since I did experiment about concrete during my previous YSEP study. Here, in ITB, we rarely have experimental research especially for bachelor student final project. Mostly, we do computational research about some methods in analyzing structure behavior of building. I am kind of missing doing this experimental works although this kind of works consumes times and energy.

Fortunately, one of my college friends is doing her final project about fiber reinforced concrete flexural behavior. She discusses the effect of concrete mixed with silica fume and poly prophelene fiber to flexure characteristic of the concrete. In order to get the result, she has to casts and tests several concrete specimens which are compression test, tensile splitting test, and flexure test. She also has to cast her concrete specimen by her own (but off course with the help of technicians)

After knowing that she is doing such kind of research work, I voluntary help some of her experiment and casting works. Even though it is a tiring work, I just can miss the moment I touch the concrete and do analysis of many parameters regarding the research. At least, I can give my little knowledge about concrete experiment to her so I won’t bother her work.

So, I casted several concrete specimens with her and technicians. Unlike in TokyoTech, all of the experiments done here should be done by the help of technicians. Students are not allowed to use the tools by their own since it could risks the tools. The students could accidentally damage the tools and hinder the research progress of other people. As for this step, I forgot to take pictures of the casting works so let’s go to the next step, the experiment.

As I mentioned before, the experiment works are consisted of compression test, tensile splitting test, and flexure test. The compression test is used to measure the compressive strength of concrete and also can be used to measure the modulus of elasticity of concrete. The tensile splitting test is used to measure the tensile strength of concrete. The flexure test is use to measure the behavior of concrete beam when subjected to flexure loading. The pictures below show the flexure test or four point bending test.

From the above pictures, you can see the arrangement of the experiment. The left picture shows the universal testing machine that will push the beam down so flexure crack will occur as shown in the right picture. During the test, the load – midpoint vertical displacement of the specimen were measured using load cell and  linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) as shown in the picture below.

The load & displacement were monitored simultaneously using data logger.  It is just like a small computer that saves data in every period we determine before. It is the same logger that I used in TokyoTech but with fewer of channels. The data logger can only saves 10 channels of data while in TokyoTech, it can saves 30 channels of data. Also, here, they print the data; not saving it to the diskette just like what we did in TokyoTech.

The result of this test will be a graph that shows load – mid span displacement (or some people say deflection) as shown in the picture below. It is just an example so it might not be same with the result of this experiment. Note: The graph was taken from a journal titled: “Flexural Behavior of High-Strength Fiber Reinforced Concrete Beams” by Ashour & Wafa.

It is just so memorable to do this kind of experiment again since now I am dealing with computer analysis of a structure. From this experiment, I once again trained my muscle as well as my mind. Although it will be so bored and tiring to do it often, it is quite fun compared to just sit in from of computer for the whole day, actually ^_^

– Special thanks to Titi for allowing me to participate in her experiment.

– Special thanks to Anders and Seiko for encouraging me writing another post in english ^_^

The SIBE 2009

The first International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure and Built Environment in Developing Countries (SIBE) was held in Sasana Budaya Ganesha, Bandung, 2-3rd November 2009. The conference states that civil and environmental engineers are at the epicenter in seeking means to enhance human life through modernization of infrastructure as evidenced by provision of shelter, water, and transport, amongst others. Those engineers are to meet multifaceted challenges that are being encountered by the environment of the earth. The civil and environmental engineer must solve the problem through multidisciplinary and holistic approach. The global momentum for sustainable development must now lead to practical applications of the engineering and science of sustainability.

The conference was organized by Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering (FCEE), Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) in collaboration with:  Hokkaido University, Japan and National Taiwan University, Taiwan. It was also supported by AUN/SEED-net, JICA, and ASEAN Foundation.

The objectives of this conference as stated in their official website are :

  • To provide a platform for exchange of ideas and information among academics, researchers, consultants, engineers, manufacturers and post graduate scholars in civil and environmental engineering.
  • To discuss and evaluate the latest approaches, innovative technologies, policies and new directions in infrastructure development, pollution prevention and eco-friendly technologies adapted to developing countries.
  • To promote cooperation and networking amongst practitioners and researchers involved in addressing infrastructure and built environment issues.

There were eight topics related to civil and environmental engineering fields discussed in the conference which were:

  • Structure and material
  • Transportation system and engineering
  • Water engineering and management
  • Waste engineering and management
  • Ocean engineering
  • Construction management
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • Environmental protection and management

It was my second time in attending big scientific conference. The first time was the JSCE conference in Fukuoka, Japan. Although I was at documentation division where I used my friend’s Nikon D40 for taking pictures of the conference, I still could watch the presentations presented during the conference.

On the first day of the conference, the opening ceremony was held. Conference participants, ITB faculty, and guests were attending the ceremony. Current Rector of ITB, Prof. Dr. Djoko Santoso gave his opening remark in the opening ceremony. The conference was officially opened as the officials shake the symbolic Angklung. The opening ceremony was then continued by keynote speech from two invited speaker.

After the keynote speech session ended, the participants went for having coffee break. In this coffee break session, participants and guest were served Indonesian snack. While enjoying their snack, participant could also explore the exhibition booths.

Then, the parallel session was held. In this session participants presented their paper according to their topic. Each participant had 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion time. The presentations were brought in English. The number of question was depended on how good the presenter presenting their paper. However, the topic that was popular enough usually got many questions even though the presenter was not good enough in presenting their paper because usually most people understand the basic concept of the topic.

On the night of the first day, the cultural night was held. The cultural night was focusing on the Angklung Performance (Sundanese traditional musical instrument). That night, Angklung attraction presented by Saung Angklung Ujo Group impressed the audience. The group is a famous Angklung performer from Bandung. At the end of the performance, every audience was given a piece of Angklung. It was my second times watching their performance.

The activity on the second day was not different from the first day except there was no opening ceremony and cultural night. The parallel session was held with coffee break in almost every 2 hours. On that day I also served as documentation staff, still, using my friend’s Nikon D40.

On that precious occasion, I was photographed together with Indonesian Earthquake expert, Ir. Masyhur Irsyam, MSE., Ph.D. I am very admiring him because his way of giving lecture and also because he is a famous earthquake engineer in Indonesia. I am so lucky to be able to take his class this year.

The conference was closed by a closing ceremony. The head of faculty of civil and environmental engineering, Dr.Ir. Puti Farida Marzuki, gave her  closing remarks and invited main committee to the main stage.

To be able to attend a conference is a very pleasant experience. Moreover, it increases our academic point when we are pursuing our degree. However, making a good paper is not easy. It requires hard work and strong motivation. I just remember when I was writing my JSCE conference paper several months ago. I had many experiments, spending hours in the lab. I had many discussions about my experiment’s result. I also had many writing revisions of my paper. It was not happened to me alone, all member of the lab who wrote a conference paper were also working hard to present their paper.  What a nice experience.
