Geothermal Short Courses & In-House Training

A. Short courses for geothermal professionals
Since 2010 UGM jointly with The University of Auckland and GNS Science, New Zealand run geothermal basic and advanced courses for Indonesian and overseas company staff. The courses are held at the Faculty of Engineering Campus, with an average duration of 5 days. The course activities include lectures, laboratory/field exercises, group project and presentations, and field trip (for basic courses) – combined with social and cultural functions.

The course topics offered vary from year to year in response to the need of the market.
