Tracking down the culprit...
The fascinating aspect of the CSI crime series is probably the high-tech methods used for investigation: ballistic trajectory calculations of bullets, analyses of blood splatters, crime scene reconstructions, experiments and tests, hair and fingerprint analyses. All these assays are based on new instrumental measuring and analysis methods.
The "Environmental Monitoring and Forensic Chemistry" degree course is based on scientific-technical education and simultaneously conveys methodological competence in the fields of environmental analysis and forensic chemistry. Due to the practical relevance of the study path as well as the broad analytical orientation, the future occupational area is not narrowed down to forensic-oriented activities or food chemistry.
Major fields of study:
- Chemical forensics
- Food and environmental analysis
A degree in this study path qualifies graduates for analytical work in the classic fields of chemistry and chemical engineering. Besides that, research and development areas as well as quality management in the pharmaceutical industry, in the automotive supply industry as well as in machine engineering and the electrical industry are supported by analysts. Other key areas of work are environmental protection and occupational safety as well as food monitoring.
