The Bachelor of Forest Science focuses on implementing environmentally-sound practices across a variety of forest environments world-wide.
The course builds skills and an understanding of the multifaceted aspects of sustainable forestry management. You'll have the opportunity to specialise in small or large scale plantations, restoration forestry, provision of environmental services, wood utilisation, forest inventory and planning, and international forestry. The course also focuses on the business aspects of industrial forest management, while acknowledging the importance of alternatives such as small-scale farm forestry, mixed-species plantations and managed private native forests.
You will gain hands-on practical skills and experience in the field in a range of native and plantation forest environments and learn how to use high tech applications in geographic and environmental mapping and analysis.
Changes in the industry drive a continuing demand for degree-qualified foresters able to work in production, conservation and restoration forestry.
