Forensic Science at NTU
Welcome to the real world of forensics
Forget what the TV tells you — there’s more to forensic science than poking at a handgun with a pen.
The books, boxsets and podcasts may be full of glamour and intrigue, but they don’t tell the full story. The day-to-day reality of forensic science is far more immersive, dynamic, and rewarding: you’ll get the investigative thrill of deduction and problem-solving, mixed with the satisfaction and rigour of deep-dive lab work. If you’re a student of science with an appetite for justice, studying forensics will scratch every itch — together, we’ll cover crime scene investigations, DNA analysis, law, ethics, forensic chemistry, and the big questions that are currently shaping the field.
