The FdSc in Forensic Sciences intends to provide a solid knowledge-base to foster and enhance enthusiasm for Forensic Sciences and to develop transferable scientific skills. Through the practical application of knowledge you will acquire the knowledge, skills and attributes required by employers in forensic laboratories and scientific support services. The FdSc intends to prepare students for the demands of working in a range of scientific environments, and equipping students with the skills and knowledge to be attractive to employers. The course contains a balance of the knowledge requirements, along with the practical skill development through a theoretical delivery model, for students to work in the science industry at laboratory associate level/professional (or equivalent). The module content will support students to evidence the requirements to apply for professional registration as a registered science technician (RSciTech). The course will target students wanting to progress into a forensic or industry science career and those already employed in related scientist roles wanting further training and development. Forensic scientists can be employed in specialist private consultancies, police forces, universities and government departments including the Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory, the Centre for Applied Science and Technology, and Forensic Science Northern Ireland.
