Forensic engineering: where are the courses?

My daughter is interested in studying forensic engineering but we can't find a university that does it. Does she need to do general engineering first then specialise? What A Levels will she need?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hello Tracy,

There aren't any first degrees of that name.

The Complete University Guide course chooser shows for Forensic Science:

The UCAS search facility shows the following, which are really forensic computing:

You should check the content of the Forensic Science courses to see if they cover the field you are interested in.

But if you want an engineering course, consider a general engineering degree as this will give a solid foundation in the key skills. This is probably the best approach. There are options at Masters level for Forensic Engineering.

Use a course search to find a degree course then click on entry requirements. Mathematics and Physics will probably be required at A level and possibly Further Maths. Each course has its own entry requirements so you must check carefully.

Look at:

Good luck.
