Aims and Objectives of Degree Course

The new programmes have been designed to provide broad-based education for undergraduate students in the fields of forest and wildlife resources management. Such fields cover issues including those related to resource use, protection and enhancement of environmental quality. It is further hoped that the graduates from these programmes will develop abilities to think and analyse issues pertaining to natural resources conservation and management without being limited by the conventional constraints of academic boundaries. Given such a background, some of the departmental and programme objectives are to produce graduates who are able to:

Carry out research on natural resources conservation and utilisation
Manage forest and wildlife resources sustainably
Provide professional advice on matters relating to technical and environmental
policy;
Participate and provide leadership in the formulation of appropriate strategies in
forestry and wildlife resource conservation and utilisation;
Participate in raising awareness in the field of forestry and wildlife resources
management; and
Pursue postgraduate studies in forestry and wildlife management areas.
