Common Preparatory Program (TPB) is one of the educational programs that all FSRD ITB students must complete in ITB (first year). The program aims to develop scientific attitudes of students. Apart from that, this program seeks to provide the students with a common understanding of basic knowledge.

In the TPB program, students will acquire a variety of courses and basic skills that will serve as a foundation for higher education. It is hoped that students will become acquainted with campus life and have agility in undergoing the educational process on campus.

  • During the TPB program, the students are registered as students of the Faculty of Arts and Design (FSRD) ITB. At the end of the program (first year), students choose the available study programs at the FSRD ITB. FSRD ITB offers five main study programs: Visual Art, Visual Communication Design, Crafts, Interior Design, and Product Design.
