  • Why VGU Forensic science dept. is better than other universities
    In Vivekananda Global University (VGU), we students as budding forensic scientists, collect, preserve and analyse scientific evidences during course of an educational investigation. We perform dual role of visiting the scene of crime and collect the evidences our self and also occupy the laboratory role, performing analysis on the evidences collected.
    Beaing a practicing student of forensic science believe that some modern T.V. shows has changed individual’s expectations from the field of forensic science , sometimes unrealistically an influence is made which is termed as CSI effect in the language of science.
    Being a student of VGU, I have been provided with a fair approach of how to effectively and realistically analyse a scene of crime more authentically without any exaggeration.
