CAHID named winner of Forensic Education Award 2014

The University of Dundee’s Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID) has been named the winner of the Forensic Education Award 2014, an independent award scheme sponsored by Forensic Industry E-Mag.

In presenting this Award, the team at Forensic Industry E-Mag were particularly impressed with the wide range of Forensic courses available at the University. Covering a number of forensic-related subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, these courses are ideal for students looking to gain the necessary qualifications to undertake a successful career within the Forensics sector.

“We were delighted to learn that we had been awarded the Forensic Industry E-Mag award for forensic education,” said Professor Sue Black, Director of CAHID. “This recognises the way the Centre has grown and developed significantly over the last few years and this year we are introducing expertise in drug analysis, fire investigation and forensic archaeology.”

The University offered the first undergraduate degree programme in Forensic Anthropology within the UK in 2004. CAHID has since grown to the present position where it is internationally recognised as a centre of excellence. The Centre was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher Education earlier this year.

The Centre’s teaching staff have national and international reputations; with several having practical experience of working in conflict zones including Kosovo, Sierra Leone and Iraq.

The University offers an undergraduate course in Forensic Anthropology and Master’s courses in Forensic Anthropology, Forensic Art, Forensic Medicine and Forensic Dentistry.
