Master of Science in Wood Materials Science is a course-based MSc programme that trains experts who make a difference towards a sustainable future. This programme creates a link between wood and the final products such as bio-based materials, chemicals and energy derived from renewable biological resources. MSc Wood Materials Science is a programme aims at training professionals who understand the entire chain from wood biomass production to product development and innovation management. It focuses on developing new products by combining wood with other materials and by creating novel materials and products from wood fibres. Our contemporary research is the basis for our teaching, which is developed in collaboration with the forest based industries.
We welcome people talented and enthusiastic people, both domestic and international, from all around the world to apply. The minimum eligibility criteria are Bachelor of Science, or equivalent, degree in e.g. forestry, chemistry, material science, biology, physics, engineering or related field.
The annual call for applications is in December. For our on-line application form and further instructions on applying, please see admissions page.
