A mainly classroom based course split into Part I and Part II with some distance learning between the two classroom sessions. This course replaces the City and Guilds Forensic Collision Investigation Course withdrawn by City and Guilds from 2013. This course can also be studied mainly by distance learning.
The course starts by revisiting the maths and physics necessary to understand the discipline before applying these principles to the techniques used in collision reconstruction. This is reinforced during practical sessions when students put these techniques into practice.
Part I (4 weeks classroom) This part of the courses covers ENGS1003, Collision Fundamentals including maths, physics and collision reconstruction techniques. There is also a short introduction to the statistics module.
Practical coursework. Between the Part I and Part II course students study the remainder of the statistics module and complete their coursework submissions ENGS1002 including two case files. The coursework submissions are submitted prior to by the date of the final examination.
Part II (2 weeks classroom) takes place just prior to DMU's final exam. The course mainly comprises revision of the syllabus, examination technique and practice papers. Following the Part II there is a final written examination held at De Montfort University.
This course assumes that you have studied mathematics in the past attaining a GCSE pass or equivalent.
We highly recommend that you sit Maths for CI's before attempting the UCPD.
A mix of classroom and distance learning.
You will need a scientific calculator, a computer and access to the internet and some form of headphones or earphones. We recommend any Casio calculator with a 'Natural Display'.
Your course tutors will help you with your studies during the course. They will mark and comment on your coursework. There are a number of phase tests during Part I with a final test at the end of the course. Coursework assessment between Part I and Part II and a final externally set examination following the Part II Course.
