Environmental and Forest Science Course

Details of the courses

This course consists of two branches: Forest Research Environmental Studies and Living Spaces Environmental Studies. Its aim is to clarify the various functions of forests, to increase their functionality, and to utilize them sustainably. In particular, education and research are focused on using techniques from the whole spectrum of the basic and applied sciences, to develop a broad-based and leading-edge understanding of forest science and wood science. It researches beneficial uses of forests and forestry products, in order to inspire sophisticated applications of wood materials. The faculty's goal is to provide an education that will cultivate highly specialized engineers who can think globally while solving the problems their profession addresses.
