FORC: Pathway in Forensic computing

The FORC project seeks to build capacities to develop an integrated curricula in forensic computing as pathways within the undergraduate degrees of the faculties of Information Technology and Law, using a student-centred adaptive learning approach based on the  Bologna processes. It aims to develop a pathway, integrated within the current curricula, to bring continuity and achieve harmony across the programmers. This pathway will meet the multidisciplinary needs of the two domains computing and law.

The importance of forensic computing to be part of the undergraduate training as integral part of their educational skills, is critical to advance the forensic computing domain towards evidence based practices, in the region, which is still at early stage. These skills are essential to solidify the deeper understanding of the value and importance of forensic computing not only to their speciality, but also their profession, work and practice.
The project seeks to build capacities in:
1. Developing new innovative multidisciplinary educational pathway in forensic computing (FORC) to be integrated in an undergraduate IT programs, based on the Bologna processes, for a student-centred learning approach.
2. Developing, validating and implementing 8 courses and 4 case studies in Forensic Computing using a student-centered adaptive contemporary education methodology.
3. Establishing Life Long Learning framework by offering two training courses for specialized public and government entities focused on computer crime and computer Investigation.
