The application of science to the law and exploring the body of knowledge regarding delinquency and crime as social phenomena is what comprise the Department of Forensic Science. The department has been incepted by Shri JJT University from session 2018-2019. 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.
