Digital Forensic Science is a new and growing field in the area of hi-tech crime investigation. The Digital Forensic Science program at Defiance College is intended to prepare the student for an entry-level position as an evidence-collection technician or similar function, beginning the career path towards digital forensic analyst and investigator. Students interested in corporate network security instead of law enforcement will also find the deep knowledge of digital systems and communications to be highly useful for detecting and understanding hacker intrusions and malicious software. Students completing the Computer Forensics major will be highly marketable in a quickly-growing job market, with a solid background in criminal justice, two nationally-recognized technical certifications, an immersive internship experience with a law enforcement or corporate security agency, and lots of practical, hands-on, laboratory activities with frequent one-on-one faculty contact.
