Forest engineering faculty

The For­est Engi­neer­ing Fac­ul­ty was estab­lished in 1929. Future for­est engi­neers mas­ter knowl­edge on basic engi­neer­ing dis­ci­plines. They also study logis­tics, inter­na­tion­al trans­port of pro­duce, geoin­for­ma­tion sys­tems (GIS), stan­dard­iza­tion and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Stu­dents have oppor­tu­ni­ty to lis­ten lec­tions of invit­ed pro­fes­sors and prac­ti­cians of lead­ing pro­duc­tion asso­ci­a­tions, such as Huksvar­na, Shtihl, Ore­gon. Prac­ti­cal train­ing takes place at wood pro­cess­ing enter­pris­es of Leningrad region.

Over last years the fac­ul­ty imple­ments a pro­gram of pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment of qual­i­fied spe­cial­ists in field-ori­ent­ed uni­ver­si­ties of Fin­land, Swe­den, and Ger­many. The fac­ul­ty also offers Mas­ter’s degree programs.

Dis­ci­plines of the fac­ul­ty focus (among oth­er sub­jects) to appli­ca­tion of geoin­for­ma­tion sys­tems (GIS), glob­al posi­tion­ing sys­tems (GPS), sys­tems of auto­mat­ed design (GREDO). They are ori­ent­ed to learn­ing inter­ac­tive design and trans­port tech­no­log­i­cal process con­trol. The fac­ul­ty has GIS laboratories.

Fields of training


Grad­u­ates of the fac­ul­ty work in all regions of Rus­sia and in many oth­er coun­tries. They have dif­fer­ent posi­tions from mas­ters up to top man­agers at for­est sec­tor enter­pris­es of any form of prop­er­ty and any pro­file, relat­ed to har­vest­ing, trans­porta­tion and prime wood pro­cess­ing. These are log­ging enter­pris­es, for­est trade and expert orga­ni­za­tions, tim­ber han­dling deports and raw stocks. Many grad­u­ates work in acad­e­mia, research-and-devel­op­ment sec­tor, design and cus­tom authority.


This field pro­vides edu­ca­tion for spe­cial­ists in orga­ni­za­tion of freight and pas­sen­ger traf­fic, study and ser­vice of freight ser­vices, logis­tics in trade and indus­try, man­age­ment in for­ward­ing com­pa­nies. Grad­u­ates work in road safe­ty ser­vices and state trans­port inspection.
