MASTER STUDIES (MSc)
Study program of master studies of technologies, management and design of furniture and wood products lasts for 1 year.
The program is designed for students to opt for a choice of one of 10 modules. Subjects in each module are selected to cover

all business segments of enterprises for furniture and wood products production.
The number of subjects that are taken in each module is the same.

A total of 4 subjects are taken in the winter semester and professional practice, study research work and preparation of the master

thesis take place in the summer semester.
Modules in the TMP master studies are:
– Module 1: Primary wood processing
– Module 2: Final wood processing
– Module 3: Chemical and mechanical wood processing
– Module 4: Machines and apparatuses in wood processing
– Module 5: Wood protection
– Module 6: Modelling of wood products
– Module 7: Timber trade and wood industry economics
– Module 8: Management and technologies of woody biomass
– Module 9: Organization, management and design of companies in wood industry
– Module 10: Wood in Construction

After the preparation and defense of the master thesis students obtain the academic title: Master engineer of technologies, management and design of furniture and wood products.
