Visit to School of Forestry, University of Canterbury, NZ (12 June 2012)

Meeting forestry postgraduate students at Canterbury

On 12 June 2012, I finally had an opportunity to visit my alma mater, the School of Forestry, University of Canterbury (UC) at Christchurch, New Zealand. I completed my master degree in forestry (M.For.Sc) from this University in 1994. This visit was made possible due to counter visit program of IPB to NZ partner universities (11-15 June 2012), namely Lincoln University, University of Canterbury (Christchurch),Victoria University (Wellington), Massey University (Palmerston North) and Auckland University (Auckland). A MoU between IPB and University of Canterbury was signed during the visit by Vice Chancellor UC, Dr. Rod Carr and Vice Rector IPB, Prof. Hermanto Siregar (see here for details). Both universities are preparing academic collaboration through new initiative on joint master degree in forestry/M.For (@izs).
