The curriculum are designed based on the Vocational Education System in Indoensia and referred to National Qualification Framework (Kerangka Kualifikasi Nasional Indonesia/KKNI) and Competences Based Curriculum (Kurikulum Berbasis Kompetensi/KBK). It takes 6 semesters (16 weeks per semester) and 110 credits to accomplish the study period and pursue the degree. The credits include lecturing (teaching-learning activities), tutorials, practices, and internship. Regularly, each semester consists of 7 credits for theory/tutorial and 11 credits for practice and tutorial. Each practice lasts 4 hours.
Referring to the main objective of Diploma 3 of Metrology and Instrumentation in Universitas Gadjah Mada, which is training skillful human resources in metrology and instrumentation, hence the teaching-learning activities are divided into 60% of practice and 40% of lecturing. To be more specific, the teaching-learning activities consist of 66 credits of practice and tutorial and 44 credits of theory.
Learning Evaluation and Assessment
Monitoring, evaluation, and assessment are always given to every teaching-learning activity per semester.

Each student attending lecturing and laboratory practice is evaluated and assessed based on the obtained competences by considering:
- Lecturing: Mid-Semester Examination, Final Semester Examination, and assignments.
- Laboratory Practice: tutorial test, pre-test, and paper/report submission.
- Internship: internship pre-test, internship evaluation by external evaluator, internship reports, and post-internship presentation.
- Final Project: proposal assessment, final project, final paper/project report, and final paper presentation (thesis defense).
