Forest Engineering Education--Where the Action Is
Abstract:A forest engineer is one who applies engineering principles to the solution of forestry problems. Professionals with such abilities are currently in short supply. Educating forest engineers requires a faculty with both theoretical and practical training, together with a curriculum emphasizing the interaction between engineering science, forestry, and business. The program should include graduate and post-graduate work.
