Bachelor's Degree In Wood and Natural Fiber Technology
The aim of the bachelor's degree is to impart competence in wood and other renewable raw materials, their use and processing into intelligent, innovative materials and products.
Most of the raw materials processed today are only available to a limited extent. Wood and natural fibers can, however, be made available sustainably in large quantities and are characterized by the fact that they can be returned to nature's cycle. The study of wood and natural fiber technology imparts the necessary knowledge and skills to use technical and economic possibilities for processing and refining wood and other renewable raw materials into intelligent materials, market-ready final products as well as for modeling value chain.
Implementation of the admission to the bachelor's degree The following original documents must be brought with applicants for admission to the bachelor's degree:
- High school graduation certificate or proof of the subject-specific university entrance qualification;
- Valid travel document or proof of citizenship in connection with an official photo ID;
- A certificate of foreign language proficiency, given either in the form of an earned passing grade (at least C1 level) authorized by a BOKU foreign language instructor, or by results from one of the standardized foreign language proficiency tests (e.g. the IELTS, TOEFL, or Cambridge Certificate), or at least 15 earned ECTS credits in subject-specific courses in foreign language taken will be accepted as sufficient proof of foreign language ability.
The versatility of the training opens up a broad and dynamic field of activity in addition to the advanced master’s degree.
Possible occupational fields can be found in:
- Saw, panel and wood industry as well as in other wood and fiber processing companies;
- The areas upstream and downstream of the processing industry such as suppliers, equipment companies (e.g. mechanical and plant engineering, coating and adhesives) trade and marketing;
- Interest groups and associations;
- Relevant research institutions, e.g. in the areas of material and material design;
- Research and testing institutes.
