This programme addresses the need for university training in advanced forensic techniques involving the latest computer applications, as initiated by the Diploma in Criminal Science, Info-analysis and Advanced Forensic Techniques, which preceded this programme, and further specialisation.

Like its predecessor, it provides high-level, eminently practical training in forensic specialisations, including the use of info-analysis systems in support of investigation, as shown by the fact that half the course hours are devoted to specialist laboratory work, allowing students to familiarise themselves with new technologies.

The programme is addressed to anyone involved in public safety and the law, or other graduates wishing to specialise in these techniques so as to intervene as professionals in the law courts.

Its students are trained to draft specialised reports on crimes, both within the field of document studies and intellectual and industrial property and that of forensic science and criminal intelligence.


Train and empower students to work together with the Department of Justice and the courts as a crime-scene officer and court forensic expert: able to collect forensic evidence and report on this in trials, combining various resources and methods (lophoscopy, ballistics, engineering and Advanced Techniques in forensic science) to reach an overall conclusion.

Enable students to specialise in forensic document studies, especially concerning issues of plagiarism and intellectual and industrial property, and specialist reports on printed documents, trademarks and patents.

Enable students to apply the principles of management by objectives and manage their own careers.
