Forensics is a science dedicated to the methodical gathering and analysis of evidence to establish facts that can be presented in a legal proceeding. Forensic technicians The forensic technician typically works in the laboratory and analyzes evidence that has already been collected in the field. The conclusions of forensic technicians are used by law enforcement and courts to render decisions in criminal and civil cases.
Forensic technicians must have analytical thinking and reasoning skills. They must also have good control over their emotions and possess the ability to work both individually and as part of a team while under large amounts of stress. Necessary skills to be a forensic technician can be broken down into three sets: skills needed in the field, skills required in the lab and skills needed to communicate the results of evidence analysis.
Brainstorming and helping to reconstruct crimes by theorizing about the relationships between evidence. They interpret evidence collected from crimes scenes, this incudes identifying unknown objects. They also study about the relevancy and relationships to the suspect and victim. They even work with which gun the bullet came from. Many times they will be asked to testify in court about the evidence collected.
forensic technicians need to have earned a bachelor's degree or higher in forensics or one of the natural sciences, such as biology or chemistry A large part of the education is lab courses. Lab courses introduce students to the experimental use of equipment such as microscopes. Graduate certificate programs to have specialized knowledge and experience within a forensic specialty. These specialties can include materials science, genetics, toxicology or animal science.
for identifying the evidence found at a crime scene and analyzing the evidence to determine its relevance in a case. Forensic science technicians handle many kinds of evidence-- including evidence that came from a weapon, marks made by a tool, hair, blood, soil and glass.
How does an engineer contribute to the world of forensics? Engineering will build the new technology that and lad equipment used in the forensics field List the forensic technology created by or impacted by engineers? Polygraph, rapid DNA, fingerprint powder, murder bag,comparison microscope, crime light., etc.… How does an engineer work with forensic scientists and forensic technicians? Engineers are often called into forensic investigations to explain the whys and why not's when something doesn't behave as predicted. Forensic scientists usually are trained and experienced in the legal aspects but not necessarily in the scientific aspects.
