job perspective

As a forensic scientist you can make yourself socially relevant in different roles in the chain of evidence - the route the evidence travels from crime scene to court room. You could be working in a crime lab, analyzing evidence that has been collected from the crime scene whilst making use of the latest analytical techniques.

sustainable strengthening

Many of the forensic laboratory employees are lacking sufficient academic level. Our programme, being a Research Masters, prepares students towards forensic research. When graduated our students will give qualitative impulses to their home organization. The quality, attitude and standards of the forensic laboratory personnel will thus improve
