Forest and Paper Engineering
engineers apply engineering and forestry principles to solve the world's
forestry challenges, with a goal of supporting sustainable forests
which are both socially and environmentally responsible. They focus on
protection of soil, water, air, and other renewable and non-renewable
combine training in chemical and physical sciences and chemical
engineering as applied to pulp and paper processing. It emphasizes the
application of mathematics, chemistry, and engineering to the pulp and
Those interested in a
career in forest or paper engineering should consider reviewing engineering programs that are
ABET, Inc. If you choose to attend a program that is not ABET accredited, you should be sure that the university
is regionally accredited.
Forest engineering students take courses such as Soil
Mechanics and Foundations, Water Pollution Engineering, Forest
Engineering Planning and Design, Harvest Systems Analysis, and Power
The following is a list of universities offering
accredited degree programs in forest engineering.
Be sure to check with ABET for updates and changes.
forest engineering jobs enhance their employment opportunities
by participating in internship or co-op programs offered through
their schools. These experiences provide the students with broad
knowledge and experience, making them more attractive candidates to
employers. Most universities offer co-op and internship programs for
