Master of Science in Tropical Forestry // 31 May or 15 July 2022

The programme aims to educate executives in the development of scientifically based, innovative and sustainable management concepts for natural forests, forest plantations and other wood formations, agroforestry systems and urban green spaces, and for controlling their use and maintenance.
