Shifting Curriculum in Food Tech. Department

In accordance with Ministerial Regulations, the Food Technology Department curriculum has undergone several changes. In 2014-2016 the curriculum used was KKNI, in 2017-2019 the KPT curriculum was used, while in 2020 the curriculum changed to KPT 3+1, and changed to the Outcome Based Learning (OBE) curriculum which is used now since 2021. OBE is a learning method that focuses on learning outcomes or achievements. This method focuses on achieving specified outcomes (knowledge, abilities and results-oriented behavior). In principle, OBE is able to ensure constructive harmony between graduate profiles, graduate learning outcomes, course learning outcomes, learning methods, and assessment methods.

Curriculum Designing

The Curriculum of Food Technology Department was designed by involving a number of parties (stakeholders), namely the University of Muhammadiyah Malang, students, faculty leaders, alumni, academics who are experts in the field of food technology, professional groups/associations in the field of Food Technology, and graduate users. These stakeholders will provide their views regarding student learning needs based on higher education curricula that are in accordance with needs in industry and are in line with the Indonesian Qualification Framework (IQF) as well as accreditation bodies, both national and international. This views will later be translated into the vision and mission of the Department, graduate profiles, learning outcomes and curriculum. The design of this curriculum can be seen in the image below.
