Dreaming of a job outdoors?

2/13/2012

The Forest Technology program trains students for the position of forest technician. The technician is an employee who works under the direction of a professional (BS degree) forester and will undertake the fieldwork that is necessary to manage the forest.

A career as a forest technician involves a variety of challenging jobs including timber inventory, procurement, maintenance of forest roads, forest management, forest stand improvement, fire and pest control, soil and water conservation, wildlife management, harvest planning, logging, cartography, and surveying. Technicians work outside in all kinds of weather and have to do some office work.

Like most professions, forestry is a high technology field with portable data collectors, geographic information systems (GIS), computer analysis of harvesting strategies, and decision-making models for forest management.
