Forest Engineering: Throughout the program, you will study forest engineering at an advanced level through approved course work and by completing and presenting a major research project on a topic you and your supervisors choose. Students have the opportunity to study in a number of areas that are important to the forestry industry including forest operations and management, bioenergy, and value added & engineered wood product manufacturing.
