Sub Course A: 
Exploring The Oceans : Mapping Sea Surface & Seabed Surface
Only about 5% of the world's sea floor has been mapped in some detail.  Since the ocean occupies roughly 70% of the Earth's surface, this leaves approximately 65% of the Earth (excluding dry land) unexplored.  That is quite a lot of Earth left to explore! In CommTECH Camp Highlight 2018, this course will take you to discuss and practice on mapping the sea surface and subsurface in Indonesia waters. The highlights in this subject consist of sea floor mapping, positioning at the sea and mapping water parameters using satellite imagery. This program is designed to suit bachelors, masters or doctoral students with or without specific knowledge in ocean mapping.

Sub Course B: Exploring The Biodiversity of Coastal Ecosystem
Indonesia is known as a mega-biodiversity country. Indonesia is an archipelagic state, its territory stretches from 6º N to 10º S and from 95º E to 142º E, comprises about 18,110 islands with a coastline of about 108,920 km.  The diversity of Indonesian marine life is hard to be precisely reported, new species are still being described and many more are still unknown. InCommTECH Camp Highlight 2018, our  subjects will take you to discuss and simulate the biodiversity in this archipelagic country, Indonesia. The highlights in this subject consist of Exploring The Microbial Diversity in Tropical Mangrove Rhizosphere, Vegetation Analysis of Mangrove Ecosystem, Birdwatching on Track, Identification and Analysis of Parasite for HealthyFood, Conservation of Germplasm from Coastal Ecosystem and final review. This program is designed to suit bachelors, masters or doctoral students with or without specific knowledge in biology or coastal management.
Sub Course C: 
Build Your Own Boat : Designing, Building and Operating Unmanned Surface Vehicle
In the era of technology and communication, the task of humans increasingly helped by the presence of robot technology. This technology has begun to enter the field of naval architecture in which one of them is Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV), a vehicle that operate on the surface of the water (watercraft) without a crew and controlled manually or autonomously via the Ground Control Station (GCS). In CommTECH Camp Highlight 2018, we will take you to understand and build your own ship prototype. The highlights in this subjects is that you will learn how to design, build, and operate your own ship. In addition, you will be invited to see the development of other type of vessels created by students in our department, i.e solar boats. This program is designed to suit bachelors, masters or doctoral students with or without specific knowledge in naval architecture field.
