Graduate Certificate in Advanced Engineered Wood Composites

The Graduate Certificate in Advanced Engineered Wood Composites is a collaborative effort of the School of Forest Resources, College of Natural Sciences, Forestry and Agriculture and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, College of Engineering.

Educational Objectives:

  • Students will acquire knowledge and will demonstrate comprehension on processing and manufacturing of wood-polymer and fiber-reinforced hybrid composites.
  • Students will conduct and analyze material property characterization of wood-polymer and fiber-reinforced hybrid composites.
  • Students will develop skills in assessing technology and systematizing application of the interdisciplinary graduate training to product development of low-cost, high-performance  wood-polymer and fiber-reinforced hybrid composites.


The 16 credit Graduate Certificate in Advanced Engineered Wood Composites includes the following:
