Accidents, crimes, terrorist activities, and natural events can result in harm to people and property. Forensic investigation uses the scientific method and principal laws of the natural sciences to explain facts surrounding these events. This course covers handling evidence, fingerprint identification, footprint identification, microscopic and trace element examination; and fire, structural failure, vehicular accident, crime scene, and various nondestructive material investigations. The laboratory instructs students in the techniques and science used and allows the student to judge which are the best techniques for determining important facts surrounding the event in question.
