Physical Evidence expands on the skills and discipline knowledge built in Principles of Forensic Science (65242) and Crime Scene Investigation (65342). During this subject, students learn methods to analyse, interpret and report forensic impression evidence including fingermarks, tool marks, footwear and tyre impressions, bullets, cartridge cases and gunshot residues. Lectures are complemented by a laboratory program that allows students to gain hands-on experience with mock cases and workshops focused on evidence interpretation skills. At the end of this subject, students are able to select appropriate procedures, analyse, interpret, and write an expert witness report describing the forensic analysis of the material covered in this subject.
