Forest Technology (A.S.)

Forest Technology prepares you for a career in forest resources

The two-year sustainable resource management Forest Technology program provides students with the skills for a successful career in forestry. Graduates are immediately able to find jobs at the technical level. Forestry agencies and wood using industries employ forest technicians as an important part of their forest management team. Students interested in a baccalaureate degree can easily transition to the Forest Resource Management specialization of the Sustainable Resource Management degree. Courses will involve a mixture of traditional lectures and outside labs, including hands-on learning at the college’s 300-acre George A. Myles Experimental Forest.


“We developed the three sustainable resource management specializations…once those were in place, it was just a matter of researching how our program could be different from other programs in the region, with a focus on sustainability and technology.”

Dr. Crystal Krause

Associate Professor of Biology and Environmental Science

“Randolph County is a natural classroom and laboratory for studies in the conservation and management of our natural resources. It is logical that D&E should embark on a new curriculum to make use of the possibilities for its students in the college’s backyard.”
