About Us

Department of Forest Products Engineering provides a wide range of programs which focus on improving the use of renewable, lignocellulosic resources. Undergraduate degrees prepare students for careers in the activities on the scientific, technical and management problems of forest products industry. In order to achieve these, the people in our department provide professional education, reveal new knowledge and timely information in improving engineered wood products that made from wood and other lignocellulosic raw materials such as veener and plywood, particleboard, fiberboard, furniture and construction elements, pulp, paper and chemicals, impregnation, MDF, OSB, adhesives, forest byproducts. The department has four professional graduate programs under the guidance of number of qualified faculty members. These programs provide a broad education on:

  • Wood Mechanics and Technology
  • Forest Biology and Wood Preservation Technology
  • Forest Industry Machinery and Business
  • Forest Products Chemistry and Technology

The programs organized to variety of specialized and interdisciplinary topics.

All the educational and research activities have been conducted with seven Assitant professor and one research assistant. The department has four main research areas;

What is Forest Products Engineer ?

Forest Products Engineer is quite simply the utilization of forest resources to maximise their value added products. These utilization processes include; pulp and paper industry, timber manufacturing processes, physical and chemical modification wood products, composite panel manufacturing and related topics.

Following a 4 years of education, successful students receive a B.Sc. Diploma and are called Forest Products Engineers.

The Forest Products Profession

The duration of the undergraduate education is four year. First two years, department has the curriculium to provide students with an understanding of the basic principles and background knowledge in engineering that they can pursue further study and work. For that reason, some follow-up undergraduate courses in calculus, physics and chemistry have been offered. The third and fourth year lectures include basic professional subject that are given students in order to interact and solve problems in forest products industry. The last year lecture includes compulsory and elective courses. Teaching is by lectures, tutorials and practical work in the laboratories. All students must take a project in the final year. Assessment for lecture courses is one midterm examination and one final examination. The average grade is determined as the sum of mid-term examination (40%) and final examination (60%).

Graduate degrees offered in the Forest Products Engineering is Master of Science (Msc.). SOCRATES-ERASMUS student should consult the ECTS coordinator for advice.
