Draft of MÜDEK Evaluation Criteria specific to Forest Engineering and Forest Industry Engineering programs
developed by MÜDEK Criteria Committee is now open to the views and recommendations of interested constituents.
DRAFT EVALUATION CRITERIA FOR FOREST ENGINEERING AND FOREST INDUSTRY
During this development phase, MÜDEK Criteria Committee has paid utmost attention to collecting the views of
interested constituents including related professional societies and related units of higher education institutions
conducting engineering programs; and formed a subcommittee specific to Forest Engineering and Forest Industry
Engineering programs in order to include expert constituents in these fields to its studies.
After reaching to a certain maturity, we are now at the phase of offering a last opportunity to related constituents
to provide their feedback by making this announcement on the MÜDEK web site. Views and recommendations sent
to MÜDEK will be evaluated by the Criteria Committee in reaching the final draft of the criteria proposal.
Final draft of the criteria proposal, together with unresolved views, if exist, will be submitted to the MÜDEK Executive
Board. It will be finalized after getting accepted by the Executive Board at its first meeting to follow.
Please send your views and suggestions on this draft document

Forest Engineering Program Criteria (Draft)
These program criteria apply to engineering programs with "forest" modifier in their title.
The program must demonstrate that graduates have: the proficiency of universal and
local knowledge in the fields of basic sciences, mathematics, and statistics required for
the solutions of problems pertinent to forest engineering applications, and of ecological,
silvicultural, biological, technical, socio-economical, legal and administrative topics
in line with program educational objectives.
Program must also demonstrate that graduates have: the knowledge and skills to identify forest
resources and elements of related ecosystem as a system; to analyze interrelations between
them by using modern measurement, modeling, and information systems; to take inventory; to
develop and plan designs, and administer such plans and their applications for the purpose of
intervening consciously with forests and related ecosystems according to the sustainability principle.
Forest Industry Engineering Program Criteria (Draft)
These program criteria apply to engineering programs with "forest industry" and similar modifiers in their title.
The program must demonstrate that graduates have the knowledge of mathematics, statistics,
physics, and chemistry (general, organic, analytical, physical, and forest products chemistry).
The curriculum must include basic knowledge in the fields of anatomical, physical, mechanical,
and other technological properties of wood, paper, and lignocellulose based materials, as well
as their production technologies and protection methods for increasing their life time, in line
with program educational objectives.
The program must demonstrate that graduates have the skills to measure the properties of
wood, paper, and lignocellulose based materials; to measure, control, and technically interpret
the variables in their production processes; to assess the effects of these variables on the
behavioral properties of such materials.
The program must demonstrate that graduates comprehend technical, economical, social,
cultural, and legal dimensions required by the planning, controlling, administrating, and
managing the production and use of wood, paper, and lignocellulose based materials, and
reflect them into practice by their designs.
