  This is an undergraduate course in forensic road collision investigation  

Advanced mapping and animation (ENGS2006)


A classroom based course split into Part I and Part II.   This course replaces the City and Guilds Forensic Collision Investigation Course withdrawn by City and Guilds from 2013.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, for details click here.

What you will study

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.  It also introduces ENGS1005, Statistics.  There is an internally set final pass/fail examination.
  Practical coursework
Between the Part I and Part II course students complete their coursework submissions ENGS1002 including two case files.  These are submitted prior to attending the Part II course
  Part II (2 weeks classroom)
Part II takes place just prior to DMU's final exam.  During the course ENGS 1005 is completed and parts of ENGS 1003 are revisited in preparation for the final examination

Entry requirements

This course assumes that you hold a GCSE in mathematics and have studied some basic physics. 

Pre-course study

If you are a confident learner but feel you need to revisit your maths, you can download Module 1 (maths) here.  Module 1 comprises five weeks distance learning.  For less confident learners we run a one week classroom based maths primer periodically throughout the year.  The maths primer course does not have a credit level.  Module 2 (physics) is also available for download here.

Study method

Classroom based with work based learning between the Part I and Part II course.

What you will need

Your joining instructions list any specific requirements.  General tools include a scientific calculator.  We recommend any Casio with a 'Natural Display'.  No computer is required for this course.

Teaching and assessment

Your course tutors will help you with your studies during the course.  They are also available at the end of the telephone between the Part I and Part II courses.  They will mark and comment on your coursework.

Professional recognition


What's the qualification

Successful candidates will be awarded an AiTS pass certificate.  This module is part of the 30 credit module, Collision investigation technologies (ENGS1015).  The other two parts being Applied maths and Forensic mapping.  This module is also part of the AiTS/De Montfort University CertHE, FdSc and BSc (Hons) in forensic collision investigation.  This module is compulsory for students studying towards their CertHE.
