Wood Engineering

In the research-oriented Master’s programme “Wood Engineering”, much of the learning process and knowledge transfer takes place through its integration into current research work. Individually or in teams of scientists and students, the students explore clearly defined questions pertinent to wood engineering or processing technology.

Programme structure

The programme content is individually designed together with a mentor. The mentor offers guidance in choosing a specialisation and supervises the students’ two research modules as well as the Master’s thesis. The programme is usually completed over three semesters and comprises 90 ECTS credits. Students also have the opportunity to attend lectures at other universities in Germany and abroad.

Career opportunities

The Master’s degree from the Faculty of Wood Engineering gives students the best possible preparation for the varied fields of application in research and development. Looking to the future, they are have the skills to take on management positions, e.g. in product development and quality management of companies, research institutes and associations. Graduating with honours also lays a great foundation for going onto doctoral studies.
