The content of my course was always interesting and kept my attention during my three years studying. I use what I learned at university every day - that could be the notes I’ve made whilst studying or the use of programs like XRY, FTK Imager and EnCase. During my second year, we did a group project for forensics where we collected evidence and presented it to a court. This was one of the best experiences I had at university.
