On March 7th 2018, students from the School of Chemistry’s Forensic Society at the University of Lincoln visited the Forensics Europe Expo in London. 

The Expo was part of the Security and Counter Terror Exhibition and is the longest running forensic event in Europe and was a celebration of innovation in forensics and digital forensics.

Arden Mower, 3rd year Forensic Science student at the School of Chemistry said about her visit, “We we to listen to three very intriguing talks:

  • Home Office Research Project into Fingermark Visualisation of New Polymer Bank Notes
  • Forensic Search of No Body Murders – New Technology and Techniques
  • Timing Post-Mortem, Deposition, and other events with Fungi

These talks were all given by leading professionals in their field. We also visited stalls where we learned about 3-D scanning crime scenes, how to gain certification in various skills, new advances in national security, and much more.

We felt very lucky to have been a part of learning what is new in the field of forensic science. Going to this event helped us network and learn how the field may be evolving in the future.”

The ‘Forensic Futures 2016: Exploring courses and careers in forensic science’ event last month gave students the opportunity to take part in a variety of interactive workshops and seminars to find out what’s available when they graduate.

From problem solving, to cv-writing, and job application workshops, students got the chance to speak to universities and academics about postgraduate options and research opportunities.

Current postgraduate students from across the country presented their current research, giving Lincoln students a taste of what they could be doing in the future.

The event run by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences gave students an invaluable insight into the career paths available in forensic science. Lincoln’s School of Chemistry was also there promoting its range of undergraduate and postgraduate forensic science courses.
