Short Description

Plant Operations and Manufacturing of Wood Products is offered as a vocational subject within the degree programme Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education. In addition, a second teaching subject must be studied.

The degree programme builds on content from the Bachelor’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education. Oriented towards craft occupations in the field of plant operations and manufacturing of wood products, students expand on technical, creative, constructive and operational content in the scientific disciplines.

Study of teaching methodology is concerned primarily with types of vocational schooling up to the initial vocational training stage. Based on the analysis of work processes and the specialist knowledge required for this, a central component of the teaching methodological content is the development of school curricula and the design of teaching elements in types of school where Plant Operations and Manufacturing of Wood Products is taught.

Plant Operations and Manufacturing of Wood Products is worth 42 credit points within the Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education (120 CP).
