Graduates of the doctoral degree program are equipped with profound theoretical knowledge in mathematics, physics, wood science and related materials used in manufacture and construction of wood products, theory of designing and theoretical and experimental furniture creation, timber structures and other wood products including the dimensioning and physical analysis. They will gain an advanced understanding of the principles of relationship between structure and mechanical and physical properties of wood and its processing as well as the technical properties of wood products and timber structures taking specifics of wood as a structural material in the process of designing and construction into account. The course will enable them to use scientific methods of planning the experiments and statistical evaluation of the experimental results. They will also be prepared for carrying out the research and designing the processes intensifying and improving manufacture of the timber products, furniture creation, timber structures and other wood products. Successful completion of the program will provide opportunities to work in the woodworking and the building industries, research and development organizations, educational institutions, in solving construction and technological research projects, and as university teachers.
