Practical and Field Works

Field work in the forest is a must for students for the assessment of qualifications. In the second semester of each academic year during the five-year academic year, field work on forestry is conducted in November and December in the reserved forest(RF) and Protected Public Forest of Myanmar.  They have to practice forestry operation according to the academic year.  The field trip lasts from a minimum of two weeks to a maximum of one month.  Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak and security situation in the area during the Burmese military coup, field operations have been suspended.
