Analytical thinking and action, embedded in a scientific approach, are the most important basis for fighting crime today. The continuous merging of the digital and real worlds makes it necessary for investigators to be at home in both worlds and to be able to move between them. The degree programme Analytical & Digital Forensics (B.Sc.) prepares you optimally for this task. How to secure traces? What does forensic imaging and image processing mean? How does analytical forensics work? You will get to the bottom of these questions together with lecturers and fellow students during your studies. In addition, you will learn numerous key competencies and a broad methodological expertise, which you can apply in practice thanks to several practical modules. After just six semesters, the degree course offers you a quick start to your professional life. Would you like to use your period of study for a specialisation instead? The 240 CP variant offers you a focus on chemical analysis or biomedicine.
