Forestry faculty

For over than two cen­turies The Forestry Fac­ul­ty has been train­ing spe­cial­ists for whom con­ser­va­tion, mul­ti­pli­ca­tion and effec­tive exploita­tion of nature resources is a mis­sion of their life. An up-to-date approach to for­est as a renew­able resource demands spe­cial­ists with mul­ti­ple and flex­i­ble qual­i­fi­ca­tion and knowl­edge of mod­ern nature con­ser­va­tion technologies.

Grad­u­ates of the fac­ul­ty can occu­py key posi­tions in the for­est com­plex of Rus­sia, includ­ing chief exec­u­tives of fed­er­al and region­al min­istries and author­i­ties, lead­ing spe­cial­ists of Russ­ian Forestry Ser­vice, pro­fes­sors and rec­tors of uni­ver­si­ties, heads of for­est pro­tec­tion cen­ters, direc­tors of sci­en­tif­ic research and design institutes.

Edu­ca­tion of stu­dents con­forms to sci­en­tif­ic research work at the depart­ments. Stu­dents have work prac­tice in field con­di­tions: in Lisi­no (28,000 ha) and Okhta (1,500 ha) Train­ing For­est Sta­tions, in Den­drar­i­um of the Botan­i­cal gar­den of the Uni­ver­si­ty (65 ha), col­lec­tion of which includes more than 1,800 species, vari­eties and forms of tree plants.

The Forestry Fac­ul­ty has inter­na­tion­al recog­ni­tion due to its col­lab­o­ra­tion with a num­ber of for­eign coun­tries in sci­en­tif­ic research, orga­ni­za­tion of pro­fes­sion­al train­ing and student’s edu­ca­tion. Among part­ners are Dres­den Uni­ver­si­ty and Get­tin­gen For­est Insti­tute (Ger­many), Uni­ver­si­ties in Joen­suu and Helsin­ki (Fin­land), Upp­sala Uni­ver­si­ty (Swe­den), West­ern Hun­gar­i­an Uni­ver­si­ty (Hun­gary); Sofia Forestry Uni­ver­si­ty (Bul­gar­ia); Mel­bourne Uni­ver­si­ty (Aus­tralia), Ore­gon Uni­ver­si­ty (USA) and others.
