The MEDFOR - Mediterranean Forestry and Natural Resources Management offered by University of Padova has emphasis on educating the leaders of the future generation of engineers, managers, researchers, and teachers involved in Mediterranean forestry and natural resources management.
It will both provide the basis needed for students to pursue academic opportunities (e.g. PhD program) and the qualifications needed to fill positions in all Mediterranean forestry supply chain segments (e.g. forestry and natural resources organizations, either public or private, either national or international).
Students can study in two or three of the 7 universities of the Consortium and may also have the opportunity to do internships with our Associated Partners.
Our Alumni MEDfOR students, often found a job within a year after graduation. Roughly one third of the students have decided to pursue a PhD after graduation or stay in academia doing research.
Half of the students have gone back to their home countries, some to their old posts – such as lecturer at Universities - while others had landed new jobs, in private entities, public administration, etc.
Several students have launched an international carrier in international organizations or as consultants.
Some students, stayed on the universities were they graduated – doing research or PhDs; while others found internships and job with the associated partners.
