Wood Science and Technology Workers

Education and Training Requirements

High School

Many different specialties are contained within the wood science field. Therefore, a broad understanding of many subjects will prove more useful than extensive study of a single discipline. Take as many science classes as possible. Biology, chemistry, and earth sciences will be especially helpful. Mathematics is another important focus area for career preparation. Many jobs in this industry are engineering jobs, which require a solid grasp of advanced math skills. Written and oral communication are important in scientific research, so English and speech classes are good choices to help you develop these skills.
