The $6 million gift from Sierra Pacific Industries, one of the nation’s largest lumber producers, will go toward the construction of a 20,000-square-foot laboratory for the development of advanced wood products such as cross-laminated timber, a type of engineered wood panel that is replacing steel and concrete in some highrise structures.
Why a BS in Renewable Materials?
A more sustainable society requires that we use more renewable materials to make the products we need rather than continue to depend on oil and other non-renewable materials. The demand for a greener future is at the heart of the WS&E department and especially of our degree programs. Please use this site as your entry into the research, teaching and outreach programs at OSU that support that vision.
We offer an undergraduate degree program in RENEWABLE MATERIALS to educate and train the next generation of leaders and innovators for exciting and diverse careers that will make a difference toward a sustainable future. Our degree program is accredited by SWST.
