This Master completes the adaptation to the European Higher Education Area of forestry studies. The qualification qualifies for the exercise of the profession of Engineer of Forests. Engineer of mountains is a highly qualified profession that, far from being obsolete, accepts the challenges of conservation, protection and management of the natural environment in such a changing world. The ETSI offers a professional Master in Forestry Engineering.
The Master's Degree in Forestry Engineering is intended, preferably, for students graduated from a Bachelor's Degree in Forestry and Natural Environment Engineering, as well as the current Forestry Technical Engineers, which are the degrees linked to the exercise of the profession of Forestry Technical Engineer.
They can also access, by completing the training complement adapted to each case, people in possession of other university degrees linked to the natural environment, for example Agricultural Engineers or Graduates in Environmental Sciences. Jace
General structure of the Master: 90 ECTS in three mandatory modules and 4 intensification options
Compulsory subject modules 20 ECTS
I - Forest Industries and Energies
II - Forest planning and improvement at territorial level
III - Organization of Companies and Forest and Natural Environment Policy
Optional subject modules 18 ECTS
IV - Transversal Intensifications and Electives
Transversal optional subjects
Final Master's Degree 12 ECTS
The natural Academic exit of the Master's Degree in Forestry Engineering is the PhD in Industrial and Environmental Science and Technology. The Official Doctoral Program in Industrial and Environmental Science and Technology (verified in accordance with RD 99/2011), consists of the following lines of research that appear below and which students can access.
Environmental analysis, bioanalysis and biotechnology
Industrial biorefinery and forest technology
Homogeneous catalysis and organic photochemistry
Science and technology of the environment
Process and chemical engineering
Electrical, electronic, control and robotics engineering
Physics, mathematics and computing

Industries linked to forest products such as sawmills, wood construction, cellulose industry, boards, cork industry, biomass use, use of other renewable energies.
Public administration: prevention and fight against forest fires; protection of the natural environment; land planning; biodiversity conservation. Environmental expert in municipalities, associations or councils.
Other organizations: associations of producers of wood, cork and forest products in general; associations of manufacturers of products derived from the forest environment; conservation organizations; foundations for the management and protection of natural spaces; public or private research centers (direct access to doctoral studies).
The Master can be accessed from the following degrees:
Official title of Forest Engineer.
Official degree of Degree in Engineering, of the Forestry branch that qualifies for the exercise of the profession of Forest Technical Engineer.
Official title of Technical Engineering of the Forest branch or the title of Forest Engineering. In both cases, training complements must be carried out.
Graduates in Engineering of the forestry branch of any foreign university with the right of access to the Master's teachings in their country of origin, who wish to access the Master, may apply for admission to it once they have adapted their degree to any of the degrees of Degree with access.
