Takes a high school basic forensic class #college #college #forensics #science
While engineers from any branch can become forensic engineers, individuals who work in civil, structural and mechanical branches are the best suited to handle system and structural failures. These civil engineering, structural engineering programs are typically found at 4-year universities or colleges.
While there isn't a 4-year degree program specifically for the forensic engineering, a bachelor’s degree is an important stepping stone to the career. My recommendation is you should look for programs in civil engineering, structural engineering, or other degrees that build a strong educational foundation for the intricacies of buildings, bridges, and other structures.
At the master’s degree level, you'll find specialized forensic engineering programs. However, those that earn a master’s degree in a more general engineering field such as structural or civil engineering may still require future training in forensic engineering.

John recommends the following next steps:
We have the Bridge to College programs that allows high school seniors to take one FREE course at BCC. This is a great way to test the waters and see what you like. You might spend your junior or senior years at BCC taking classes in person or online right here in Pittsfield.
The Criminal Justice program at Berkshire Community College provides an interdisciplinary approach that examines all facets of the criminal justice discipline: law enforcement and community relations, the court system, delinquency, substance abuse/use, investigations, and corrections.
I would also recommend the Liberal Arts Program - The goal of the BCC Liberal Arts Program is to develop students’ foundational knowledge and skills through a wide variety of academic disciplines in preparation for informed engagement in their communities, the ever-changing economic landscape, and successful transfer to a four-year institution. I love this program because it has 21 Free Electives which allows you to choose different courses and explore what you like so you may take some math and music courses.
Below is the link to the program I mentioned. -Karen R.L.
