Am a prefinal year B.E biomedical engineering student..am i able to join forensic science courses?
The eligibility for MSc forensic science is listed differently in different colleges.
For example, at Delhi University the eligibility listed as only BSc / BSc (Hon) in any Science subjects, while at Panjab University, along with science graduates they have listed engineering degree holders also to be eligible.
Hence, if you have shortlisted any college for MSc Forensic Science, then you need to call the admission department, or better, visit their office and check out the eligibility.
Since you are having an applied science background of biomedical engineering there may be a possibility that they could consider your application for MSc forensic science. All the best!
Further, you may also consider Cyber Forensic courses, since you have a little background in computers and also have a technical background.
Do remember that forensic is still in a nascent stage in our country and hence jobs are limited to government and few private labs. As the field develops we might see a huge growth in future, but currently it’s scope is limited as far as getting jobs are concerned, while abroad in countries like the US and European ones, there is better scope.
