Further Study for Master’s Degree through Passing Postgraduate Entrance Examination

In the past three years, 12.9% of our graduates pursued further study for master’s degreesthrough passing the Postgraduate Entrance Examination; 92.7% of them have gained admission to “Project 985” universities.

Studying Abroad for Further Education

In the past three years, 6% of our graduates have gone abroad for further study, mainly in the renowned universities in the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.

Employment

In the past three years, the employment rate has reached 97%; our graduates obtain employment mainly in Beijing, Tianjin, provincial capitals and developed cities. Most of our graduates are employed by state-owned forest enterprises and public institutions, state-owned forest industry groups, engineering machinery and construction corporations.

Specialists’ view

NEFU’s Forest Engineering is the earliest characteristic program in China. Among forestry universities, our program is the first to be authorized to confer master’s degrees (1981), Ph.D. degrees (1986), and with a postdoctoral research station (1999). Our program is rated as A++ in the appraisal of national programs for several consecutive years, ranking first nationwide, with leading faculty and academic research achievements ranking top among similar disciplines and enjoying a high reputation worldwide. Prominent experts on Forest Engineering at other forestry universities in China, principal directors of forest industry groups and forestry administrations are mainly graduates of our program.

Our program aims to cultivate highly qualified versatile talents who can engage in the production technology, organization and management of forest engineering in forestry-related enterprises and public institutions; in the plan of forest roads and forest engineering; the design and utilization of forest engineering machinery and equipment with a solid foundation, reasonable knowledge structure, superior ability and a wide range of knowledge so as to meet the social demands of forest engineering personnel. Excellent graduates of our program can be recommended to be postgraduates for master’s degrees or Ph.D.s and outstanding students can be recommended to go abroad for further study.
