Purpose of Forensic Informatics Education Program,
It will be to train qualified personnel in this field, where there is still a significant need for specialists/experts, and also to pave the way for young academics who aim to pursue their academic careers in an interdisciplinary branch of science that can be considered very new in our country.

Scope of the Program
forensic informatics; The crimes committed by criminals using computer and information technologies, analyzing the crime scene starting from the period when the criminal was suspected, collecting data by making the necessary actions, examining these data, making the necessary associations about the crime, if any, presenting the results to the judicial authorities as a result of a regular reporting, and information technologies.
