Tasmanian expertise leads in timber education

The University of Tasmania's Centre for Sustainable Architecture with Wood (CSAW) continues to expand the educational opportunities it is offering to those who design or build with timber, and those who make and distribute timber and wood products.

"Two options are available at the moment," said CSAW Director, Associate Professor Gregory Nolan.  "The first is our Graduate Certificate in Timber (Processing and Building).  This is a course for those who want structured education about timber and its use in building.  The second is a shorter single-day event, our Master Class in Timber Technology and Wood Science."

Applications are currently open for a July entry into the Graduate Certificate in Timber (Processing and Building).  This flexibly-structured online course provides specialist study for those involved or interested in the design, construction, maintenance and management of products.  It is accessible for students all over Australia and the July intake will be its second-ever group of students.

"The Master Class is the second in this successful series of one-day seminars.  Titled 'Timber Technology and Wood Science' this Master Class is about timber, its origins and key technical aspects of the material and its use.  The class has sessions scheduled for Brisbane and Launceston this July."

"The Master Class will also cover fundamental timber and wood properties issues as well as some of the latest developments in timber technology and design from around the world.  It won't be all talk either.  Hands-on sessions are included in each class."  Associate Professor Nolan said.
