Department of Wood Science & Engineering


"We are a multidisciplinary university program focused on science, technology, engineering and business practices that help society sustainably meet our needs for renewable materials, and help ensure the global competitiveness of American business. We are one of the largest and most diverse renewable materials programs in North America but pride ourselves on behaving like a small program when it comes to student success."
