INSTITUTE OF FORESTRY AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES

Introduction:
The Institute was established in 1976 as Institute of Forestry with the help of Ministry of Agriculture and Forests, and Bangladesh Forest Department, under University of Chittagong, Bangladesh. Later, it was renamed as Institute of Forestry and Environmental Sciences in 1996. The Institute started providing in-service training (Master of Forestry) to newly recruited ACF in 1977-78, regular 4-year B.Sc. (Hons.) in Forestry in 1978-79, M.Sc. in Forestry in 1996, B.Sc. (Hons.) in Environmental Science in 2000-2001 and M.Sc. in Environmental Science in 2004.
 
The vision of the Institute is to generate skilled professionals in the field of natural resources, especially Forestry, Biodiversity and Environmental Sciences. Graduates of the Institute should address the local, national and international issues in the field of forestry and environmental sciences.
 
The mission of the Institute is:
  • To provide and promote facilities for under-graduate and postgraduate education and research in Forestry and Environmental Sciences,
  • To provide teaching, training and guidance for degree of B. Sc. (Hons.) in Forestry, B. Sc. (Hons.) in Environmental Science, M. F. (Master of Forestry), M. Sc. in Forestry, M. Sc. in Environmental Science, M. Phil in Forestry, M. Phil in Environmental Science, Ph. D. in Forestry and Ph. D. in Environmental Science,
  • To develop teaching materials in Forestry and Environmental Sciences,
  • To provide consultancy service and technical assistance as requested by organizations engaged in Forestry and Environmental Sciences; Policy making processes in the national developmental programs.
  • To undertake research in Forestry and Environment for the advancement of education, and publish books, bulletins, journals, reports, etc. in Forestry and Environmental Sciences at home and abroad, and
  • To organize National and International Symposia, Seminars, Conferences, Workshops and Training Programs in Forestry and Environmental Sciences.
