Physics Master Study Program, FMIPA University of Jember Achieves UNGGUL Accreditation Predicate from LAMSAMA

Good news is here again for the FMIPA academic community at Jember University. Physics Master Study Program, FMIPA University of Jember  achieved UNGGUL accreditation. Contained in the decision of the Lembaga Akreditasi Mandiri Sains Alam dan Ilmu Formal (LAMSAMA) Number 022/SK/LAMSAMA/Akred/M/IV/2024 dated April 1, 2024. The achievement of this superior accreditation is very encouraging for the Physics Masters Study Program and also for all residents of FMIPA UNEJ. This is because some time ago the Biology Masters Study Program FMIPA also achieved UNGGUL accreditation, so there are already 4 study programs at the FMIPA University of Jember that have successfully achieved accreditation with a UNGGUL rating from LAMSAMA..

The success of the Physics Master’s Study Program is an effort made by all parties. The Physics Master’s Study Program, through its accreditation team, prepares forms, supported by lecturers, students, alumni, and other stakeholders working together to achieve the title of UNGGUL accreditation. Jember University leadership also plays a role and supports the LAMSAMA accreditation process, which is carried out by all work units within UNEJ. During the field assessment, Vice Rector I of UNEJ, Prof. Drs. Slamin, M.Comp.Sc., Ph.D., was present to accompany the field assessment process by delivering a presentation about the profile of University of Jember.

As is known, in mid-February, the LAMSAMA assessor team carried out a field assessment in the Physics Master’s Study Program. The assessor team consists of Prof. Dr. Mitrayana, S.Si., MSi., from Gadjah Mada University Yogyakarta and Prof. Drs. Triyanta, M.S., Ph.D., from the ITB Bandung The field assessment lasted for two days through several sessions with faculty leaders, study programs, the accreditation task force, and sessions with alumni and external users to obtain information about expectations, satisfaction, or input from stakeholders and alumni regarding UPPS outcomes.

The success of the FMIPA Physics Master’s Study Program in achieving SUPERIOR accreditation will be a reference for other Master’s Study Programs, especially the Mathematics Master’s Study Program, which will carry out LAMSAMA accreditation this year too. Especially for the Chemistry Masters Study Program, which was only established in early 2024, this is a guide to prepare yourself from the start to achieve UNGGUL accreditation like the 2 Masters Study Programs that have achieved it. Meanwhile, for the FMIPA Physics Department, it is also a matter of pride because the Bachelor’s Study Program and the Physics Master’s Study Program both achieved UNGGUL ranking accreditation.
