Welcome To Wood Science & Engineering

The Department of Wood Science and Engineering is one of the largest and most diverse departments of its kind in North America. However, the department’s world-class faculty provide personal attention to students training for exciting careers in high-tech fields. There's an increased demand for wood science graduates across the renewable materials industry thanks to the growth of renewable materials products including tall wood buildings. The department is home to the TallWood Design Institute, a collaborative research effort striving to grow mass-timber solutions in the U.S. This, as well as the department’s other programs are focused on the science, technology, engineering and business practices that help society sustainably meet the world’s needs for renewable materials and help ensure the global competitiveness of American business.
