Head's Welcome Message

Dr. Nat Owusu-Prempeh

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Department of Forest Resources Technology, Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources – College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, KNUST. The Department currently runs a BSc. programme in Forest Resources Technology. Our students specialize in any of the following four (4) options namely: Ecotourism and Forest Recreation, Land Reclamation and Rehabilitation, Social Forestry and Wood Processing and Marketing.

We provide our students hands-on training in the application of theories to identify problems and propose solutions. For that purpose, the Department has a field training station at Brosankro near Tepa (about 60 km from Kumasi). In addition, the Department dedicates the whole of the first semester of the final year to compulsory industrial attachment where students are attached to institutions related to their options of specialization. The overarching goals of the attachment are to expose students to the work environment, sharpen their practical skills, enhance their problem-solving capacities and job prospects upon graduation. Overall, about 40 private and public natural resource related institutions across the country collaborate with the Department to run the attachment programme.

You are always welcome to talk to us.
