One of the most fascinating ecosystems on Earth - the forest - is the focal point of our studies. As a renewable natural resource, wood has bright prospects, as well as other bioresources have. The development of reliable concepts for using this basis for life and for handling natural resources is one of the most important tasks of the present and future.

Forest ecosystems are the major terrestrial land resource for biodiversity, i.e. habitat for the majority of plant and animal species, and the main producer of wood, the most important renewable resource in both volume and value terms. In addition, forests provide a number of indispensable goods and services for mankind, e.g. factors of water conservation and carbon mitigation. Sustainability is a key element in the management of forest resources, and hence is also a key element in the master's program. All aspects of this concept are touched during the course of studies, for instance, sound management planning for future decades as one of the basic technological toolkits.
