You are invited to attend the MSc Course in TROPICAL FORESTRY for DAAD scholarships. The course is taught in English at Technische Universitaet Dresden (TUD), one of the 11 German Universities of Excellence.

Over many decades, the international orientation and socioeconomic focus have made this 2-year MSc course unique in Europe. You will benefit from the multidisciplinary international experience of our research scientists and lecturers who will also supervise your field research in the tropics.

The Master course qualifies future decision-makers and change agents to develop sustainable forest management strategies and implement development-relevant interventions in rural and peri-urban areas.

The studies provide expert knowledge to handle manifold human-forest interactions and sustainable development issues.

In addition to socioeconomic, management and general aspects of tropical forestry, the course includes specific topics of climate change related carbon forestry, agroforestry and land use change. Excellent Master Students have later the chance to join our PhD program.

Presently, over 300 graduates from our courses are working in tropical countries and international organizations, many of them in top positions.

Another benefit: As public university TUD exempts students from tuition fees!
