Specialists’ view

I graduated from Forest Conservation Program of NEFU in 1982 and have been engaged in the research of forest conservation since then. I am convinced that our program aims to cultivate versatile and innovative talents who can guarantee forest health so as to meet the great demands of national eco-environmental construction, ecological safety and forestry development. Our teaching standard and cultivation quality have taken the lead in China. Students are required to master the theory and technology of identification, diagnosis, monitoring, quarantine and control of forest pests. After graduation, the majority of our graduates choose to further their education for master’s degrees, while some of them opt to find employment in the teaching, research and production practice of the identification, diagnosis, monitoring, quarantine and control of forest pests in forestry, landscape and quarantine departments. We welcome students who are equipped with a solid foundation of mathematics and chemistry and have a keen interest in nature, verdant mountains and clear waters to sign up for our program.

Students’ View

The Forest Conservation Program stresses the cultivation of theoretical knowledge and practical capability, highlighting the acquisition of basic knowledge and theory in class as well as emphasizing the cultivation of students’ handling capacity in practical teaching, such as in-class experiments and intensive practice. We can not only apply what we have learned to practice, but lay a firm foundation for further education. If we plan to apply for further study, our program offers master’s degree and Ph.D. programs; if we plan to find a job after graduation, we can engage in work related to forestry.
