Forest Engineer (1st and 2nd cycle degree)
The studies leading to a degree in Forest Engineering are characterised by their generalist nature, and include subjects related to the fields of engineering and woodlands.
Students conclude their thorough scientific-technological training by studying one of the following specialist pathways:
- Natural Environment Engineering, which involves the study of infrastructures and planning of woodlands.
- Natural Environment Management, which involves the study and management of natural and woodland resources.
The generalist profile of this degree course provides Forest Engineering graduates with the skills they need to adapt to the different technological fields within the area, as well as the quickly advancing developments they are undergoing. Examples include the following:
- Preservation and use of the forest cover, hunting and inland fishing, and conservation of the soil and improvement of the hydrological regime.
- Management of protected natural spaces and of the official land register of rural spaces.
- Industrial processing of forest products, industries based on the different uses of wood, and forest management.
