Formal field classes, special studies, and professional exercises are conducted by students at all of these forests. The Faculty also supports the Centre for Applied Conservation Research, a specialized research centre. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada and the Western Laboratory of FPInnovations - Forintek are on-campus facilities which cooperate in teaching and research in engineering and forest products. The Centre for Advanced Wood Processing, located adjacent to the Forest Sciences Centre, provides a direct link between the wood processing industry and the University.
