Programme >

The programme focuses on the study of the theory of forestry, and forest composition and structure and explores the role of natural events in forest formation, the application of chemistry breakthroughs in forestry development, the norms of pesticide usage, anatomy, morphology and systematisation of higher plants, climate role in forestry development, the organisation and management of forest agriculture, physiologic and biochemical processes in trees and bushes, the biology of forest animals, the forest parasites, and the characteristics of tree species.  Students will be trained to effectively carry out the forestry management planning and learn to undertake the complex measures against the forest pests and pathogenic organisms as well as analyse forest dynamics and plant genetics.

The laboratory on forestry and wood processing technologies will contribute to the development of practical skills of students.Students will also have an access to the newly developed Geomatics Center, where they will have a chance to draw precise forest plans and maps with the help of the modern devices and brand programme software. Students will be able to w with the latest geodesic tools and conduct lab experiments and tests. The Center is equipped with Photogrammetric and Remote Sensing Stations. Those will be used by students to carry out complex analysis and automated vectorisation of forest areas based the satellite data. Students will learn to devise specific geoinformaton systems of forest areas. With the help of CIS and CAD technologies and Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing software, students will learn to develop different scale maps depending on the type of forest area and tree species, to create the specific data base and learn to employ integration systems.

Students can pursue their careers in the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, research institutes, international forestry projects.
