Division of Forest and Biomaterials Science

Our Division

Forests present many possible options for mitigation of global environmental issues while achieving a sustainable society. In our division, we are engaged in a diverse array of research, education and training activities  in order to address the following overall missions.

  1. Conservation and utilisation of forest ecosystems
  2. Coexistence of forests and people
  3. Technologically advanced uses of forest-derived biological resources

As a graduate student one can learn multiple functions of forests and wood as the sustainable natural resource. We look forward to motivated students interested in helping build a sustainable society.
