The B.S. in Renewable Materials trains students to create and design new products from bio-based materials, from wood to recycled materials. Through hands-on courses, students apply what they learn in the classroom in our state-of-the-art laboratories in a variety of areas such as biofuel creation from wood waste, development of plastic-enhanced wood for construction, and innovative use of small-diameter trees.The program notably integrates business curriculum that prepares students to work in the renewable materials and wood products industry; a $3 billion industry in Idaho.
