"All men are liable to error and most men, are, in many points, by passion or interest under temptation to it"

John Locke (1632-1704)

The application of science to the law and exploring the body of knowledge regarding delinquency and crime as social phenomena is what comprise the Institute of Forensic Science & Criminology (IFSC). The institute has been incepted by Panjab University from session 2009-2010.

Forensic science is the diverse collection of scientific techniques. In practice, forensic science is built upon the principles dragged from physics, chemistry, biology, anthropology and other scientific principles and methods. In earlier times real .forensic science. has been assigned to the real science of fingerprints, firearms, tool-marks and questioned documents etc. However, although many of the techniques used in modern forensic science have been borrowed from other sciences, it is also true that in recent years, it had matured into a scientific discipline in its own right.

Criminology is the development of a body of general and verified principles and of other types of knowledge regarding the process of law, crime and reaction to crime. Criminology is aimed principally at elucidating the connection between crime and the personal characteristics of the offender or his environment, with special reference to the origin of the offence.

The Institute of Forensic Science and Criminology provide a M.Sc. degree to the students covering the realm of forensic sciences and criminology with a desire to put it to maximum use in detecting, investigating and ultimately reducing the crime. Offshoot aim is utilizing scientific power in producing 'scientific workforce' to meet the needs of highly technical personnel to serve the society in an effective and efficient way.
