Immersing into the Culture of the Indonesian Architecture and Construction Industry

The Australian construction industry shares many similarities and differences with that of close neighbour, Indonesia. It's essential for students to recognise this and the impacts that the economy, culture, labour and technical parameters of construction project management have on current practices and future trends within both industries.

This course has three components:

First, lectures where students learn about design and construction management principles and technologies applied in Indonesia.

Second, site visits where students can immerse into the culture, architecture, technologies, methods, and site management of the Indonesian construction industry. The site visits are tailored to complement the lectures.

Third, cultural activities such as learning batik technique, dancing, and learning the Indonesian language.

Networking events with the Australian Consulate-General in Surabaya have been held in the past, and various news outlets in Indonesia have covered the trip. Past students say that the course is genuinely eye-opening.

Key Information


Built Environment students will visit Indonesia for a 14-day study trip, where they will live near the Petra Christian University campus and participate in teaching and learning activities.
