Department of Forestry, Environment, and Systems
As the issue of global warming raises worldwide concern, low-carbon green growth is becoming one of the core policies for national growth. Therefore, it is becoming more vital to improve economic and national activities through the ecological management of forest resources and to preserve, restore, and maintain the natural environment, including forests. The objective of the establishment of the Department of Forestry, Environment, and Systems is to foster experts equipped with the expertise necessary to communicate between humanity and nature by applying scientific systems' approaches to forests and the natural environment; developing practicals kills for multipurpose management and sustainable uses of forests; executing the preservation and conservation of natural resources and advancing research methods for utilization of the beauty of forests and the improvement of both the mental and physical health of the people.
Department of Forest Products & Biotechnology
The Department of Forest Products and Biotechnology involves a of forest products and bioengineering technologies with the aim of extending support to the environment and mankind. As such, we aim to produce new experts in the fields of bio-energy, functional substances, and environment-friendly biomaterials (wood, paper). By using various microorganisms and regular organisms, we hope to create environment-friendly biomaterials that respond to the needs of the 21st century by focusing on low-carbon green growth. In particular, the Department of Forest Products and Biotechnology has been strengthening the application of biotechnology in the field of wood / paper-manufacturing industries to contribute to realizing a healthier and more environment-friendly bio-industry, which is being given more significance in consideration of the current changes in the environment, society, and the economy.
The department program is centered on areas that place higher social demands on experts, such as environment-friendly wood construction and wood engineering, functional bio-substances and herbal medicine, bio-energy engineering, the use of new ingredients, and the preservation of paper sciences. In order to respond to the central goal, we are equipping our students with the foundational requirements of industries, in addition to the academic theories that they need to grasp. In this sense, our curriculum strengthens the experimental training of students, expands the courses requiring the collaboration of industry and academe and offers internships and on-site training in order to achieve a higher employment rate.
