woodSMART encourages students to study wood design and construction. They way we build is changing and the shift to more sustainable, and industrialized, construction processes require new graduates to know more than just concrete and steel. In addition, advanced engineered wood materials and sophisticated fabrication technologies are facilitating increasingly larger, and taller, wood structures in denser urban areas.

Employers often favourably view new graduates who have wood design and construction knowledge. woodSMART wants to support students who are interested in wood design and cosntruction to give you a competitive edge when entering the workforce.
