The undergraduate Wood Products Processing program is a fusion of science, engineering and business. Students in this program develop a sound understanding of wood material properties, industrial manufacturing processes, and key business and management skills to permit production and financial analyses.

The Forest Bioeconomy Sciences and Technology undergraduate degree prepares students to tackle the most critical issues the world faces around climate justice solutions with a focus on understanding natural resources and ecosystems to supply the bioeconomy, the chemistry and biotechnology to develop innovative biobased products, and quantitative tools to measure the sustainability of processes and products.

Both undergraduate programs offer popular co-op and Minor in Commerce options.
