Forensic Mark Comparison

This course introduces students to a range of techniques used in the analysis of marks that originate in scenes of crime.

Students develop a scientific approach to investigating forensic mark comparison. They gain practical experience with practitioner experts at their place of work. The collaborators include the West Midlands Police, a major UK Police Force, and Orchid Cellmark, an established Forensic Science provider. Students can undertake their research project either at the University or within a variety of specialist practitioner centres within the EU.
