Welcome to the
Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology

The Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology offers an up-to-date and varied course of study that illuminates forests with their properties and their importance for biodiversity and climate protection, but also explicitly deals with the possibilities of human use, thereby addressing economic questions as well as social ones, and the dimension of forests and its use. The course also provides knowledge about the properties and possible uses of wood and wood products. Our faculty maintains numerous cooperations with other universities, research institutions and interdisciplinary centers all over the world and is active in many interdisciplinary research associations.
