There are exciting research opportunities in Forest Engineering. Questions about how best to maximise production efficiency of mechanised operations; or how to minimise the environmental impacts of forest operations, or about how to integrate new technology still need to be addressed.
The Forest Engineering programme enjoys a very high level of support from the Aotearoa New Zealand forest industry, with many companies and harvesting contractors prepared to help out.
