Mission Statement & Philosophy

UTM Logo

As Canada's first Forensic Science program, UTM set the standards for all subsequent Canadian forensic programs that flourished in the wake of the CSI phenomenon. Our vision for the future is to continue our pioneering role in this country and to extend our influence abroad.

In addition to providing a strong scientific foundation for our students, the UTM Forensic Science Program is leading the field in the visualization of scientific evidence. Capturing, archiving, analysing, interpreting, and demonstrating crime scene evidence can be facilitated with imaging technology and incorporated into daily practice by forensic professionals. 

The UTM Forensic Science Program is uniquely suited to offer this innovative approach to forensic science instruction through our collaborations with the University of Toronto Biomedical Communications Program and the Centre for Forensic Science in Toronto.
