The Faculty of Wood Mechanical Technology is one of the oldest faculties of the Reshetnev University. The Faculty was established on 13 July 1930 as one of the first four faculties of the Forest Technology Institute (which later became known as Siberian State University of Technology and now it is a part of Reshetnev University). On 18 May 2018, the Faculty of Wood Mechanical Technology was separated from the Forest Technology Institute of the Reshetnev University.

The Faculty trains specialists for sawmilling and wood processing industries for the future qualifications in:

- technology of wood processing industries;

- wood product design and development process;

- organization and management of wood processing industries.


 Faculty’s departments:

- Department of Wood Processing Technologies;

- Department of Composite Materials and Wood Technologies;

- Department of Machines and Instruments;

- Health and Safety Department;

- Graphics Department;

- Mechanics Department;

- Department of Applied Physics.

The Faculty also includes Interregional Innovative Educational, Scientific and Technological Center of Timber Complex.
