We have all seen forensic scientists in TV shows, but how do they really work? What is the science behind their work? The course aims to explain the scientific principles and techniques behind the work of forensic scientists and will be illustrated with numerous case studies from Singapore and around the world. Some questions which we will attempt to address include: How did forensics come about? What is the role of forensics in police work? Can these methods be used in non-criminal areas? Blood. What is it? How can traces of blood be found and used in evidence? Is DNA chemistry really so powerful? What happens (biologically and chemically) if someone tries to poison me? What happens if I try to poison myself? How can we tell how long someone has been dead? What if they have been dead for a really long time? Can a little piece of a carpet fluff, or a single hair, convict someone? Was Emperor Napoleon murdered by the perfidious British, or killed by his wallpaper? *For Nanyang Technological University (NTU) students, please be noted that this course will no longer be eligible for credit transfer....

This was a good course for reviewing forensic medicine. Some detail part of medicolegal aspects are insufficient but as a package, it is most essential for the expert to upgrade their knowledge.

This is by far one of the best courses I have taken. It's intriguing and thought-provoking while providing fascinating information and going into detail on how forensic science works.

Very Interesting. I'm not a chemist so struggle with some of the chemical compound diagrams but understand the principal and description. I really enjoyed the presentation and case studies. The Peer reviewed assignments are hit and miss with how the assignments are marked.

Course content = 5 stars


There is no educator/lecturer to answer questions about the lesson, and your questions will go unanswered. It's like the University just dumped the course on Coursera and disappeared.

To get a grade on your assignments, you have to be graded/reviewed by a certain number of fellow classmates, and that may not happen, even if you submit your assignment very early in the week, causing people to go on the forums and desperately beg other classmates to grade them/review them or else they won't progress in the course. This is bullshit! I advise the moderators to make a way that everyone's assignment gets assigned to specific people who will grade them, so that people don't desperately go on the forums, crying for fellow classmates to review their work and give them a grade. This is so unprofessional and the University should be ashamed of it.

Lastly, the Coursera platform is a joke, lot's of technical problems. The Uni must consider moving their course to another platform, or Coursera must improve their platform.
