The Faculty is favourably situated for educating men and women as conservation scientists and biologists, natural resource planners and managers, wood product specialists, foresters, forest scientists and biologists, and forest business administrators. It enjoys the benefits of a large university with good libraries and other facilities for study. The Faculty is based in a state-of-the-art 15,000 square metre building. In addition to the lecture and laboratory classrooms, the Faculty supports three research forests in the southcoast, north and central interior regions, totalling almost 25,000 hectares. Formal field classes, special studies, and professional exercises are conducted by students at all of these forests. The Faculty also supports the Centre for Applied Conservation Research, a specialized research centre. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada and the Western Laboratory of FPInnovations - Forintek are on-campus facilities which cooperate in teaching and research in engineering and forest products. The Centre for Advanced Wood Processing, located adjacent to the Forest Sciences Centre, provides a direct link between the wood processing industry and the University.
