Change the world


The BTech Forestry / Wood Technology class of 2012, accompanied by Prof Jos Louw (Director: School of Natural Resource Management, Faculty of Science, front centre) and programme lecturers capture a moment in time in front of Pampoenkraal. This historic homestead is now utilised as a convenient conference venue and guest house at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University’s George campus at Saasveld.


NMMU’s BTech Forestry students are international players in more ways than one – seven of the students in the programme are from neighbouring countries, such as Swaziland, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, while graduates from the programme are sought after internationally. Many former Saasveld Forestry graduates now find themselves with lucrative careers, working internationally in the forest industries of Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South America.

Sixty-nine BTech Forestry students are registered on the programme for 2012.
