Master’s degree study program
The Faculty of Forestry adopted the 4 + 1 + 3 years structure of the study programs. According to the adopted structure, master studies last for one year or two semesters with a total of 60 ECTS.
Master academic studies of ecological engineering for soil and water resources protection are organized through three modules:
• Module 1 – Protection of water resources in hilly-mountainous areas;
• Module 2 – Degradation and protection of soil resources;
• Module 3 – Management of sustainable development in degraded areas.
The modules of master’s degree studies in ecological engineering for soil and water resources protection have five compulsory subjects, one of which is a common subject for all three modules. The Master’s degree program i.e. its modules have a number of elective subjects in which students expand their knowledge in the chosen direction. The teaching process of this study program takes place by means of lectures, exercises, seminar papers, tests, exams, study research work and the master’s thesis. The Master ‘s thesis is developed together with the study and research work in the second semester, with the topic from the field of the selected module and 15 ECTS credits are awarded for it.
The requirement for admission to master’s degree study program of ecological engineering for soil and water resources protection are completed undergraduate studies with 240 ECTS credits earned at the Faculty of Forestry or similar study programs of other faculties, and universities in the country and abroad whose programs are aligned with the programs of this faculty.
After graduation the candidates receive the title – Master engineer of forestry in the field of engineering for soil and water resources protection.
