The begging of the Department of Wood-Based Composites, Cellulose and Paper  have been started from the Department of Joiner-Mechanical and Plywood Manufacturing, created at the Faculty of Mechanical Technology of Wood (1947-1953). From 1953 to 1975, the disciplines related to wood composite materials were studied at the Department of Woodworking Design (1953-1970), renamed from 1970 to the technology of wood products. In 1975, the Department of Hydrothermal Processing of Wood and Glued Materials was established, which in 1986, as a structural unit, was liquidated, and in 1994 it was re-established, in which sections of hydrothermal processing of wood and glued materials technology were already functioning.

In June 1, 1999 specialty "Chemical Technology of Wood and Vegetable Raw Materials Processing"  in the Faculty of Woodworking was opened and It was caused to creation of the graduating department "Chemical technology of wood processing and safety of life". On July 1, 2001, two departments were created with the reorganization of this department: chemical wood processing technology and life safety.

On January 29, 2010, the department was named “Wood-Based Composites, Cellulose and Paper”, which became fully reflective of both the educational and scientific directions of the activity of the graduating department. It is the only department in Ukraine that provides training in the specialization "Technology of wood boards and plastics".
