Overview

This course is designed to give a broad introduction to the application of engineering and physical sciences to forensic problems. Particular emphasis is given to understanding metallic component failures and the principles of failure analysis.

The MSc Forensic Engineering and Science course is part of the MSc Forensic Programme which has been formally accredited by The Chartered Society for Forensic Sciences.

The course is highly practical and hands-on, aiming to produce forensic experts capable of giving an expert opinion in a courtroom situation and elsewhere.

The course consists of a one-week period of introductory studies followed by academic instruction in modular form. Most modules are of five days’ duration, interspersed with weeks devoted to private study. Students are required to take four core modules, four role specific modules and choose three elective modules based on their particular background, future requirements or interests. This is followed by a four-month research project and either a thesis or literature review and paper.
