Study Wood & Timber Engineering in Germany
Wood is extremely versatile one of the most widely used materials, often combined with metals, plastics, glass or other materials (furniture, construction). The processing of wood from raw product and then its manufacture into finished products that is (structural components, wooden units, wooden products, furniture) and above all, in the chemical industry (cellulose, paper, fiberboard), it is used in development of wood-specialized training for materials engineers and industrial purposes. Wood management basically covers the timber industry, wood trade and wood research related programs, while timber engineering in Germany is offered by universities of applied sciences which mainly concentrate on production engineering and operations management in wood-related fields.
Study wood in Germany and you will have great career options since wood is the world’s most sustainable and common used building material ever known to mankind. Originally it’s aesthetic beauty, durability are the main factor why wood is becoming the leading building material in a new age of sustainable and healthy building practices across the globe. Engineers and wood managers who pursue courses of timber engineering in Germany above all work in the timber/wood industry, e.g. in planning mills and wood sawing, basically in furniture manufacturing, in plywood, chipboard work and mainly wood fiber, in the wood processing industry for finished goods, in the structural wood industry, with manufacturers of various structural wood components, in the prefabricated housing industry, wood products and in the chemical wood industry, mainly in the production of wood preservatives among large industries, wood paints and glues, board and, in paper, cellulose production. More employment opportunities in the wood and timber trade mainly includes, with the manufacturers of wood and timber processing machines and plants, in the construction industry, mainly in research and teaching of public authorities and agencies and in the wood industry associations.
Engineering in Integrated Wood Design is being developed to meet emerging needs of the society. From last 100 years concrete construction has dominated building construction and it has only been from last few years that the industrial construction sector is turning on wood. There are numerous advantages of wood over concrete and steel structures like cost, seismic stability, carbon neutrality sustainability, health benefits. In few more years young minds will emerge as leaders in resource-efficient industrial engineering around the world, so it would be a great choice to study wood in Germany.
