Detecting the perpetrators of crime is not only based on simple investigative activities, but requires specialised knowledge of the motives of the offender and the circumstances in which the offence was committed. Thanks to the increase in the importance of forensic techniques, also achieved through the use of new technologies, including examinations carried out on digital polygraphs (commonly referred to as lie detectors), the detection of crime is almost always associated with the carrying out of a series of complex activities revealing evidence of the commission of a crime. Students in this specialisation will acquire skills in verifying the authenticity of handwriting and documents, processing surveillance data, examining biological traces collected at crime scenes, conducting dactyloscopic examinations. They will be able to evaluate the collected evidence of a crime. They will also obtain a background in forensic reconstruction of road accidents, fires, etc. The increasing role of forensic techniques for the effectiveness of investigations and enquiries creates a demand in the labour market for specialist knowledge in this field.
