Welcome to the website of the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences of the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague. We provide a comprehensive forestry education system to encourage and support rational forest management and sustainable utilization of its huge natural resources. Our Faculty has become a respected international research centre. In our classes, students learn both in-depth theory and practice to be well-prepared for future challenges in forestry, wood processing industry and research. Our students are achieving almost 100% employment.
Forests provide us with a precious renewable resource – wood. An environment-friendly material, wood is used for fuel as well as a construction material. We use it to make paper, furniture etc. Forest, though, means a lot more to us than being just a place where we take our wood from. It responds to a number of our needs, including recreation and education. We are obliged to take good care of forests, manage them responsibly and provide all necessary technical and personal services.
Our students of forestry, wood processing, game management, taxidermy, economics and administration services, and other study programmes become experts who can accommodate and harmonize interests of the forest and human demands. Students learn to use the latest technology available, work in well-equipped laboratories, learn from best experts and conduct research projects with them. Much of the research undertaken by the Faculty is applied, published in academic journals, presented at conferences, congresses and in educational programmes in the public media as well.
We boast a long tradition of international relations and our students can spend a part of their studies abroad, at our partner institutions. Broadening their horizons helps the students develop their vision and mission statements and define their success.
