OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Wood's heyday has arrived

Farther south, a collaboration among Oregon State University’s colleges of forestry and engineering, and the University of Oregon’s School of Architecture and Allied Arts, has attracted state and federal funds. The National Center for Advanced Wood Products Manufacturing and Design will offer education and research on the design, engineering and construction of multistory buildings using wood products.

Also, the College of Forestry has announced plans to build a $60 million Forest Science Complex that will highlight wood use and research.
