The program is expired. A new M.Sc. program in Wood Science (in English) will be offered from winter semester 2019/20.
Wood is used worldwide for fuel, construction, and as a material. The most important renewable material, it is increasingly being used for entirely new applications. The Center for Wood Sciences in Hamburg–Bergedorf brings together wood-related expertise from a range of disciplines, from biology and chemistry to technology, ecology, and commerce. The program imparts in-depth knowledge of all areas of wood science, and courses are complemented with field trips within Germany and abroad. Close cooperation with the research facilities of the Thünen Institute means students have countless opportunities to specialize. A high level of support is offered throughout the program.
