MSc Fire Scene Investigation covers fire scene investigation theory and practice. It is the scientific approach to the examination, analysis and interpretation of evidence which can be found at a fire scene. As a Fire Scene Investigator you will determine the origin and cause of a fire through the application of practical skills and scientific knowledge from a variety of disciplines. You will also require excellent written and verbal communication skills to ensure investigative conclusions are effectively communicated.
