Department of Forensic Science VGU

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The Department of Forensic Science was established in 2019 under the Faculty of Basic and Applied Sciences with the aim of creating much required expertise in the field of criminal investigation with the application of advanced scientific techniques. Department is located at the fourth floor of university’s largest site (VGU Technology Block) that lies in the east part of Campus. Our curriculum is designed to meet the diverse interests of Forensic science students. The students will receive training to gain fundamental knowledge about applications and analysis in forensics.

The Department offers honors courses for undergraduate students and imparts, in addition to the structured theoretical courses, hands-on training, laboratory facilities and internship programme in State Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) visit to department of Forensic Science in medical colleges and State Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) and organizes guest lectures having resource person and dignitaries from FSL. The Department possesses reputed faculty who have developed themselves as an independent researcher.

If you are interested in the Fingerprinting, Questioned documents, Ballistics, Toxicology, Cybercrime, Explosives, Serology and DNA profiling, Criminalistics, identification, collection, preservation and transportation of evidences and are keen in  preparing a career as a forensic scientist in research and development, Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD), National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Cybercrime, Wild life, Law enforcement, be it the police force, customs or investigatory agencies. This is the place for you.
