Systems Engineering, Modeling and Simulation

Prof. Akhmad Hidayatno


Department of Industrial Engineering, Faculty of Engineering
Kampus Baru UI, Depok 16424
West Java, Indonesia


Prof. Akhmad obtained his undergraduate degree from Industrial Engineering Major, Mechanical Engineering Department, Universitas Indonesia. He obtains his master degree in business and technology in University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney – Australia, which in his views have given him a unique balanced perspective between the engineering world and the business world.

His Doctor thesis is about evaluating national biodiesel policy in Indonesia using System Dynamics. Currently he is the head of SEMS Lab. His current research interest is sustainable systems engineering, a new and exciting field which involves designing and managing complex systems in a sustainable way concurrently from the economy, environment and social perspectives. He is currently member of Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE), System Dynamic Society (SDS) and International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE).
