The Humber College Forensic Identification (FI) program is designed for students who are interested in becoming frontline forensic investigators. The program’s unique hands-on approach provides expert instruction utilizing the most modern criminal forensic technology within a specialized curriculum. In November, FI students were outside, experiencing first-hand what it is like to be part of an excavation of possible human remains. The excavations took place outside of the Annex buildings on our Lakeshore Campus.
Following industry-recognized procedures, the anthropological dig practicum included forensic techniques for documenting and collection of evidence such as forensic photography, grid searching, 3D laser scanning and excavation and recovery of evidence within clandestine graves. The weather held out on them, but rain or shine, the elements don’t stop the experiential learning from proceeding.
