Gain an edge in your future career by learning on leading-edge instrumentation today.

Forensic science is a rapidly evolving field, and a forensic science program is only as good as its technology. At Cedar Crest College, our students benefit from working in state-of-the-art laboratories that contain more than $3 million of leading-edge equipment. When you travel to conferences, attain internships, and later embark on your career, you will do so with an in-depth knowledge of the latest and most sophisticated instrumentation and technology for forensic science practice and research. The following instruments are among those used during coursework and research in forensic science.
