About Institute

Forensic science is basically the application of various scientific methods and techniques for the purposes of justice. Forensic Science often seeks to provide answers to a number of questions like - What? Why? Where? When? Who? How? from Whom? and so on!

We, at Government Institute of Forensic Science, Nagpur are playing a leading role in nurturing young minds in this field of interest, since inception in 2011. We offer exciting opportunities to the students who are interested in opting for a challenging career in the field, leading to the award of B.Sc. Forensic science Degree, M.Sc. Forensic Science Degree, P.G. Diploma in Forensic Science and Related Law (PGDF) and P.G. Diploma in Digital and Cyber forensic and Related Law (PGDC).

Our well equipped library with a huge range of books, laboratories, experienced and enthusiastic teaching staff, and extensive learning support facilities in the form of regular mock crime scene demonstrations, guest lectures, seminars, educational visits to various institutions of academic importance, etc. provide a stimulating study environment for the benefit of our students. Each year the institute is updated with new and latest facilities for the betterment of our students.

This hands-on course with world class facilities helps the students to build solid foundation of skills and knowledge. The institute emphasizes on overall development of students. The students graduating from this institute have opportunities to work in diverse range of industries and organisations. Apart from academics, students are encouraged to participate in sports, arts, and other fields to showcase their talents and explore their unique potentials.

The courses are aimed at creating informed citizenry as well as a workforce that would be able to stand up to the ever rising stature of crime and criminals in the society. We want to change and reverse the notion that the “criminal is always one step ahead of the investigation agencies”. Our comprehensive syllabi, practical oriented & skill based teaching-learning (would) enable(s) our students to be useful and ready (for) to the investigation agencies (Police, CID, CBI, etc.); to the Forensic Science Laboratories (District, Regional, State & Mobile units); to colleges &/or institutions (as qualified teachers for the subject i.e. Forensic Science); various laboratories (undertaking quality control, quality assurance, analytical work, research, etc.); as forensic experts (to give ‘expert witness’ as an aid to the court & lawyers as amicus curiae, etc.) to name a few!
