This Course builds further on Forest Products (1TS013) and deals with physical properties of wood and the interplay between structure and the properties of wood material in use. Teaching takes place through lectures, exercises, and laboratory work. Course includes moisture mechanics, the concept of density, deformations, and strength properties of wood.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
