Virtual reality

You’ll also be using new digital technologies – mapping habitats using computer software or investigating crime scenes using virtual reality. Discover how virtual reality is used to develop forensic skills.

Crime scene simulation house

Our crime scene simulation house is used by Forensic Science students. We work in partnership with local police forces to recreate crime scenes so students can get a taste of what they would encounter as a forensics professional.

Envirotron

The Envirotron is a sophisticated greenhouse that minimises environmental impact and provides fine control of conditions within individual compartments. The facilities are designed to support teaching in biodiversity, conservation, environmental change and food security and are integral to several of our science courses.
