Programa de Pos Graduação em Ciências Florestais - Graduate Program in Forest Science - Programa de Posgrado en Ciencias Forestales

O Programa de Pós-Graduação em Ciências Florestais (PPGCF) teve origem em 2013 incluindo os níveis de mestrado acadêmico e doutorado. O programa é subdividido nas seguintes linhas de pesquisa (LPs): Ecologia e Ecofisiologia de Árvores - conservação e recuperação de áreas florestais da Amazônia; 2) Manejo de Ecossistemas de Florestas Nativas e Plantadas - obtenção dos recursos da floresta sem prejudicar sua continuidade; e 3) Tecnologias de Recursos Florestais - desenvolvimento de produtos e geração de bioenergia à partir recursos florestais. O corpo docente reuniu pesquisadores da UFRA e EMBRAPA-Amazônia Oriental considerados referências na conservação aliada ao desenvolvimento da Amazônia Brasileira.

The Graduate Program in Forest Sciences (PPGCF) originated in 2013, including academic master’s and doctoral levels. The program is divided into the following lines of research: Tree Ecology and Ecophysiology - aiming conservation and recovery of forest areas in the Amazon; 2) Management of Native and Planted Forest Ecosystems – seeking forest resources without harming its continuity, and 3) Forest Resource Technologies - product development and bioenergy generation from forest resources. The faculty brought together researchers from (the Federal Rural University of Amazon) UFRA and EMBRAPA (Amazônia Oriental) considered references in the Brazilian Amazon conservation and development.

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. Special emphasis is given to flexibly adapting to the changing conditions of society and the manifold interactions among human beings and forest formation development, with a multi-disciplinary approach. The two-year course altogether comprises 120 ECTS points structured as three semesters of classroom studies and one semester of elaboration and defence of the master's thesis. Optional compulsory modules enable the students to identify and design a particular individual profile. The research plan is prepared to effectively collect and analyse primary data from the late third up to the early fourth semester.

Start of studies: Winter semester 2022
Duration: 4 semesters
Venue: Tharandt, Germany
Organizers: Technische Universität Dresden

Application deadlines:
1 April - 31 May (international applicants, from outside the EU)
1 April - 15 July (applicants from the EU)
