Brief Profile of the Department      The Department of Forensic Science was established in the year of 2018 at IEHE, Bhopal with the aim to develop it as a major teaching department in Madhya Pradesh and to help the criminal justice system to over­come the shortage of skilled man­power engaged in this very particular field. This department is currently involved in teaching of Forensic Science at the undergraduate level leading to B.Sc. in forensic science (honours/ Subsidiary).
Forensic Science is the scientific observation, examination and analysis of materials of crime, scene of crime, victim or accuse etc. for the purpose of law. Forensic medicine, toxicology, ballistics and explosive examination, fingerprints, examination of forged documents, voice analysis, DNA finger printing, Narco analysis, Brain mapping and cyber forensics are some of the fascinating disciplines and techniques of forensic science. Students in this program learn and discuss forensic science perspectives and apply scientific concepts uniquely related to the forensic sciences—such as crime-scene reconstruction, the legal integrity of scientific evidence, courtroom testimony, and individualization of physical evidence. Currently the department offers 3 years (6 semesters) undergraduate program with maximum 40 students intake in every session.
Another motive behind presenting this course is to inspire the students to explore the truth through science and shape the future of forensic science by applying the new, upgraded scientific knowledge and innovations. Present curriculum is based on theoretical concepts and real world examples, promote critical thinking skills, maintain the ethical and professional standards of the profession of forensic science, prepare students for future employment in government and private sectors such as forensic science laboratories, detective agencies or criminal investigation departments, financial and legal sectors, consultancy, self-employment etc.
