  3. Analyze problems and formulate solutions for tropical forest management in general and specifically for the field of silviculture, based on data and information analysis using relevant mathematical, statistical, biological, physical and chemical theories and approaches, forest engineering, forestry economics and policy, utilization of remote sensing technologies, management of forest products, as well as conservation of natural resources, and environmental ethics.
  4. Provide Human Resources who are competent in producing high quality seeds, seedlings and trees in terms of genetic, physiological and physical through conventional or biotechnological approaches.
  5. Design appropriate models and techniques for establishing, managing, monitoring and evaluating nurseries, planting, maintenance, protection and harvesting in various silvicultural systems.
  6. Examine and analyze the influence of physical environmental aspects, nutrient cycles and energy cycles including hydrology and climate for the success of ecosystem-based forest management.
  7. Integrate science and technology in the field of silviculture including forest productivity, silvicultural systems, agroforestry, the field of ecology which includes dendrology, forest ecology, forest syn-ecology, tropical tree ecology, and forest protection including pest, disease and forest fire management with forest and environmental dynamics to improve the quality and productivity of natural forests and plantation forests for the achievement of sustainable forest and environmental management.
  8. Synergize science, art and cutting-edge silvicultural technology based on local wisdom in implementing, monitoring and evaluating forest management activities including agroforestry, restoration and rehabilitation of degraded lands to ensure the achievement of the desired values ​​and goals with the principle of ecosystem-based sustainability for the welfare of society.
  9. Apply basic and applied science of silviculture based on research principles and scientific writing.

Competence of Graduates

Department of silviculture is established to carry strategic tasks to produce high quality human resources, products and technology to maintain the existing tropical forests; increase productivity of plantation forest; rehabilitate mining sites and other degraded land; promote and establish community forests; and promote the establishment of forests according to clean development mechanism (CDM) concept in industries to reduce CO2 emission.

The Department run an undergraduate study programme (major) of silviculture to produce bachelor graduates who are faithful to his / her religion and God, and have good morality ; are able to apply and use science, knowledge, technology, and / or arts of silviculture on the basis of local wisdom and the most recent technology to ensure ecological function, protection and production of forest for desirable values and need in sustainable manner, on the basis of ecosystem and for human’s welfare.
