About this Program

Programme aims at providing opportunity for learners to obtain knowledge and skills for managing forest resources, the environment and allied natural resources (biodiversity, water, wildlife) with emphasis on natural tropical forests – in other words for conservation oriented. The Forest Products Engineering course is uniquely tailored to provide knowledge, skills and attitudes for efficient and improved use of forest products – emphasizing their judicious utilization and innovative alternatives. The programme is, therefore, meant to prepare graduates to pursue and specialize in various aspects of forest sciences and technology. The programme  promotes national development through training; research and technology transfer in forestry hence contributing to the strategic plan of the School of Forestry, Environmental and Geographical Sciences and that of Makerere University at large.
