Wood Technology

Head: VL Reinhold Krobath
In this department, students from every area of study receive theoretical and practical teaching in wood technology. In addition to basic lectures, seminars and exercises form focal points, which should encourage students to undertake research and experiment in line with their study courses. During individual, artistic-technical teaching, on the basis of designs students are provided with an opportunity to implement their project, semester or diploma projects in a professional and independent manner. All processes, from the idea to realisation are furthered in the areas of furniture, prototype construction, installation, modelling and art.

As in the past, the challenges of the coming years demand the permanent adjustment of the curriculum in line with the latest artistic, technical and scientific findings, a continuation of the technical upgrading of the machine pool, expansion by means of new investment, and co-operation with other institutes in new fields such as CNC, laser and water jet technologies.

In the Wood Technology Department, lectures and seminars are held, which cover specific topics relating to every area of wood processing and working. Group and individual teaching takes place with regard to the respective design, construction or material problem. Moreover, as a result of the ongoing consideration of particular questions, a focus is placed on artistic-technical experiments in the fields of working, construction, processing technology and surface treatment relating to wood and in connection with other materials.
