Forest & Environmental Sciences

The College, the only one of its kind in Korea, educates students to effectively produce, manage and utilize forest resources and to help foster ecological principles that are necessary in our industrial society in the student consists of the Division of Forest Resources and the Departments of Wood Science & Technology, and Department of Paper Science & Engineering. The Division of Forest Resources contains three Programs: "Forest Resources Development," "Forest Resources Production," and "Forest Resources Protection." In Department of Forest Resources, professional knowledge and technology are acquired for the effective management and protection of a forest' s natural resources, that are based on the biological theory of forest ecology. The Program of Forest Resources Production provides students with knowledge in the field in accordance with the newly growing recognition of the importance of forests. The Program of Forest Resources Protection offers courses to protect and foster forest trees, forest wildlife, and other secondary products from insects, disease, forest fire, pollution and climatic disasters. The Department of Wood Science & Technology concentrates on the theory and development of up-to-date technology in order to utilize forest resources effectively and completely with the rapid development of the forestry Industry. The Department of Paper Science & Engineering provides students with education in the physical sciences and chemical engineering, with specific emphasis on those aspects that are related to the manufacture of pulp and paper. In addition, the college maintains a Research Forest, the Forest Science Institute, and the Changgang Institute of Paper Science and Technology for the purpose of contributing to the development of forestry. It provides students with opportunities to practice and undertake research.
Department of Landscape Architecture aims at education an wxpert to plan and design sound living environments which satisfy natural order and human needs. Feilds of education and research range from indoor spaces and gardens through parks and tourism sites to cities and regions.
