The Wood Technology Lab aims at educating and transmitting knowledge to the students from the areas of wood structure and physical, chemical and mechanical properties and also in wood cutting, drying and saturation . To understand wood structure and know the physical and mechanical properties of it is critical and fundamental not only for comprehending the advantages and disadvantages of wood as a raw material, but also for knowing and extending its uses in several applications in practice.

ιThrough the courses Wood Technology I and II students will learn the mechanical properties of wood and wood composite products. This knowledge will help them for better treatment as well as for proper application in manufacturing products. This necessity is considered imperative because wood products like OSB, LSL, LVL, PSL today have replaced solid wood in several cases.
