The Department of Forest Biomaterials (FB) offers a minor in Sustainable Materials and Technology (SMT) to all undergraduates enrolled in the University as degree candidates except those in FB. The minor will provide students with a basic understanding of sustainability as applied to materials (e.g., wood, agricultural products, etc.) and the manufacturing processes that are used to convert them into a multitude of different products.
Admission and Certification of Minor
