About College

 

College of Forestry, OUAT, Bhubaneswar located centrally in the heart of the temple city of Bhubaneswar, it boasts of a sprawling campus and spacious infrastructure which are easily accessible (about 5 km away from railway station and about 2.5 km from Biju Pattnaik International Airport).

Forestry education in Orissa University of Agriculture & Technology was introduced in the year 1976 after the recommendation of National Commission on Agriculture, with inclusion of 3 courses namely (1) Silviculture (2) Forest Products and (3) Forest Conservation in the curricula of B. Sc. (Ag.) course. Subsequently, during 1987 after the recommendation of National Forest Policy-1986, a four year B. Sc (Forestry), an undergraduate course was introduced in the country as well as in OUAT. 

 The college offers Graduate and Post graduate degree programmes. The B.Sc.(Hons.) Forestry is a four year professional degree course with course work, Forest Work Experience (FoWE) and Experimental learning (ELP) Programme, with an intake capacity of 51.

Thereafter, OUAT had upgraded the Department of Forestry to College of Forestry with opening of 5 constituent departments having intake capacity of 06 students in each department such as-

  1. Silviculture & Agroforestry
  2. Forest Products & Utilization
  3. Forest Biology & Tree Improvement
  4. Natural Resource Management 
  5. Forest Policy and law

 Admissions are carried out strictly as per the norms of the University, wherein performance in the OUAT entrance examination and marks secured in last qualifying examination are taken into account. The duration of the undergraduate programme is 4 years and that of the post graduate programme is 2 years, both following the semester system. The course curriculum of B.Sc (Hons.) Forestry & M.Sc. (Forestry) programme are designed as per ICAR recommendations. The college campus has adequate fully-furnished classrooms, well-equipped and updated laboratories, a common room, auditorium, examination hall, computer labs with Wi- Fi internet extending throughout.
