Department of Forestry and Landscape Architecture

The Konkuk University (KU) Department of Forestry and Landscape Architecture was first established in 2013 as the Department of Environmental Planning. Despite its recent establishment, the department has already produced a number of professionals in the areas of landscaping and forests, and aims to reinvent itself as an even more systematic academic field.

The Department of Forestry and Landscape Architecture implements the following strategies in order to create a stable academic department.

1. Establish organic partnerships with administrational bodies including the Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, Korea Forest Service, local governments, and the Korea National Parks Authority.

2. Form agreements with public and private sector firms and the landscaping industry to facilitate students' career search.

3. Reinforce students' career path preparations through the running of an employment studio open to the participation of all department members.

4. Actively provide students with opportunities to participate in international activities at the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the ASEAN-Korea Forest Cooperation (AFoCo) while improving their foreign language skills.

Through such efforts, we aim to achieve a graduate employment rate of over 70% and obtain over 90% of qualifications related to major fields. The department strives to promote trust and understanding through regular communication between students and professors, juniors and seniors for the purpose of making university life the most important time in students' lives.

There is a greater social demand for improvements in living standards and the coexistence with ecological environments, as well as an increased demand for an academic area integrating life and space. The Department of Forestry and Landscape Architecture fosters coordinators capable of taking a leading role in generational changes through preparations made to suffice such social demand.
