About Forensic Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University

Forensic study is increasingly popular in universities and a forensic approach is often used in the workplace. This course gives you engineering skills and knowledge related to forensic investigation. You gain an understanding of the legal issues in forensic study. A third of your study involves improving your knowledge of the legal system. Engineering is always studied in a legal context. You study how engineering can be used to explain why systems have failed or how damage occurred with relation to an accident or crime. You do laboratory work developing analytical skills with reference to engineering failure. You also develop in-depth skills of how to interpret this failure and the results of analysis. You do a dissertation research project where you look at a forensic engineering issue of your choice. An academic tutor supports you and provides advice and guidance during this project. We expect you to work in specialist forensic investigation teams, either with a larger engineering company or a specialist company which provides failure information for the police or legal teams. Developing your legal knowledge allows you to understand the importance of * responsibility issues when systems fail * investigation based on sound engineering principles * the legal process. There are four other forensic courses available. They are all designed to meet a wide range of individual needs and expectations. Each course complements your degree study or previous work experience.
