Collaboration with NIKON
The department maintains a collaborative partnership with Nikon, Inc. through the annual Nikon Locker program. Students use the latest Nikon DSLR cameras and lenses throughout their course work, thus developing a comprehensive forensic photography skill set. Applied Biosystems has helped provide unprecedented access to cutting-edge technology and global DNA profiling capabillites. Through a gift by Cogents Systems, now 3M Cogent, our students have a computer laboratory that provides access to AFIS and IBIS systems, contemporary biometric identification systems used nationally.
Through the generosity of accomplished entrepreneur and philanthropist, Ming Hsieh, the department has an endowment that supports two name professorships and a faculty development fund. A recent gift by the J. Edgar Hoover Foundation has allowed us to award the first department-based scholarships to four meritorious juniors and seniors.
