Head of Biotechnology
The Biotechnology program at i3L is uniquely positioned to deliver world-class education and research experiences that will prepare students to be future biotech leaders. Through its interdisciplinary curriculum and collaborations with leading global universities, students have the opportunity to learn from the best lecturers and professors in Biotechnology and explore their passion within the various areas of Biotechnology. With its strong research portfolio and well-equipped laboratories, the Biotechnology program offers ample opportunities for students to gain real research experience during their study at i3L. Our network of industry and research partners continues to actively recruit top talents from i3L to fill the growing need of biotech professionals both in Indonesia and abroad.
We look forward to welcoming top students to help us usher in the Biotechnology revolution in Indonesia.
Our curriculum provides students with lab courses to equip them with practical skills needed in the industry, such as cell culture, genetic engineering, and bioprocessing. Our students have the opportunity to be actively involved in lecturer research projects starting their very first semester.
Our strategic collaborations with top national and international universities, research institutes, companies, community groups, and government open up many doors for the future of our students.
Our curriculum provides students with streams in medical biotech and sustainable biotech. Our curriculum is aligned with the MBKM program from the government which allows students to study off campus for a maximum of 60 credits, including student exchange, internship, and research.

I am grateful to have been a part of i3L's family. I had never been to a school with such loving and caring faculty members and friends. I learned lots of valuable things. i3L is the best university and it gave me plenty of opportunities to sharpen my skills and mind. I am really proud to be an alumna of i3L.
My time at i3L has definitely helped shape me and has prepared me well for my current activities. I have always been interested in research and science and my curiosity was well addressed both inside and outside classrooms with guidance from helpful lecturers. All in all, I’m satisfied with the education that i3L has provided me.
i3L allowed me to grow more as a person, for I was given the chance to look for my own internship placement. It was hard but I ended up interning at Korea University. It was a struggle I'll never regret. During my internship, I experienced life as a researcher, where I took care of various things that I never thought of doing during lab sessions. I had the chance to design an experiment and presented my ideas there, which helped me to develop my communication skills. Through this internship, I learned how to be a good researcher.
It has been a memorable experience having i3l as my second home for the past four years. This campus has provided me with high standard education and a lot of hands-on lab experiences which are highly relevant to my current job. Aside from learning, I’ve also had the best time joining student clubs and communities as well as CSR activities. I’m surely going to miss my time at i3L.
