History
The Department of “Technologies and Mechanization in Forestry” is the successor of the third department in the field of forestry - “Forest Exploitation with Forest Technology”. The Department of “Forest Exploitation with Forest Technology” was established in 1930 to the newly created “Agronomy and Forestry Department” of the University of Sofia. Its first head was Associate Professor Todor Dimitrov, who later became full Professor and Corresponding member of Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. Throughout the years the department has been named as follow: from 1945 to 1974 – “Forest Exploitation with Forest Transport”; from 1974 to 1994 – “Mechanization of Forestry” and from 1994 it was renamed “Technologies and Mechanization in Forestry”.

Consistently the heads of the department have been:

  • Prof. Eng. Vasil Stojanov (1930-1958);
  • Prof. Eng. Nino Statkov, PhD, Doctor honoris causa (1958-1961);
