FORS 6664 - Forensic Field Technology Laboratory

Prerequisites: FORS 6612  , FORS 6613  , FORS 6653  .  Co-requisite: FORS 6663  .  Technology is rapidly changing in all sectors of modern society.  This is especially true of forensic science where practitioners have to stay up to date with the new technologies so these technologies can be used in the field to process or discover crime scenes.  The technologies can range from instruments of discovery such as ground-penetrating radar to in-field analysis as well as portable Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry.  This course will introduce students to technologies that are used in the field as well as how the data collected in the field can be entered and processed by the relevant databases.  The students will have an opportunity to get hands-on training with the relevant technology both in the field and in a laboratory setting.  This course will be the practical component to the Forensic Field Technology course. Laboratory fee.
