Grotefend, Robert T.
This report describes a project to develop a forest product technology curriculum that prepares students at the technical level, junior management, to work in the manufacturing of wood and bark into lumber, plywood, particle board, laminates, and pulp chips. Chapter 1 describes project objectives and procedures followed. In chapter 2 the history of the forest industry is overviewed, and some new (sawmill) developments and innovations are cited. Personnel needs and career opportunities are also discussed. Chapter 3 presents the six-quarter program. It also considers sources of students, admission requirements, facilities and equipment, class size, program costs, and suggested student equipment. Some general conclusions are made in chapter 4. An appendix provides descriptions of each of the 36 courses in the curriculum. Each description provides this information: course title, lecture and lab hours (per week), quarter credits, prerequisites, overview of content, course objectives, material covered and number of weeks to cover it, texts and/or references, and suggested student equipment.
