WSE Research

The Department of Wood Science and Engineering is committed to world-class research and constant innovation. We believe our research is strongest when we partner with other institutions and industry partners. For example, the TallWood Design Institute combines the expertise of our department, the Oregon State College of Engineering and the University of Oregon College of Design to conduct applied research and provide testing services to industry as we grow mass-timber solutions in the U.S. Our department’s research is diverse, and at any given time students and faculty may be working on research a wide range of areas. However, much of what we do falls within seven general areas.

Richardson Hall is the current home of the College of Forestry, but the new Oregon Forest Science Complex, which is currently under construction, will feature state-of-the-art classroom and research space.
