Sustainable Bioproducts Major

Students majoring in Sustainable Bioproducts will develop a strong foundation in the manufacturing of wood and fiber-based products, their physical and mechanical properties, environmental implications, marketing, sales, and trading of wood and composite materials composed of agricultural resides and other natural fibers. Besides structural materials, specialty chemicals such as polymers and adhesives from natural resources, and bioenergy such as bio-oils, alcohols, and pelletized fuels are increasingly important to sustainable industrial production. In addition to utilizing the state’s timber and agricultural residues, the program seeks to increase the use life of wood and non-wood materials, and to enhance sustainability by use of preservative treatments and developing improved designs.

Students must complete a specified major core curriculum and one of two academic pathways.

  1. Business
  2. Science
