Historical Background

Forestry faculty is the oldest one of the University. Its history dates back to December 8, 1859 when the Gory-Goretsky Agricultural Institute welcomed the first students of the Forestry program who were trained for careers in agronomy and forestry with the opportunity of obtaining a PhD degree in the abovementioned fields. That faculty served as a basis for the future Forest Engineering Institute as well as the present Technological University.

At present the main task of the faculty staff is to develop and improve a multi-level system for training forestry specialists of the world standard. Forestry programs prepare our students to manage forests in both rural and urban areas for economical, ecological, and recreational purposes.
