Based on the research aided teaching principle, the Department aims to promote sustainable development of forest ecosystem and to maximize the availability of multiple forest services. The goals have been accomplishing by development of teaching program and intensive research in the science and technology of forest management, silviculture, and ecology. The faculties in the Department have expertise in remote sensing and geospatial techniques, forest ecosystem management, forest engineering, forest certification and economics, tissue culture, natural resources inventory, and wildlife ecology. Besides the basic knowledge in forest science, our students will be empowered to be able to carry out the work of resources inventory/planning/ management independently and/or collaboratively.

Curriculum Planning
