About

Champlain's award-winning Computer and Digital Forensics program from Champlain College is the premier destination in the country for those who want to go into this exciting field. Starting in your first year with a deep forensics curriculum, you will spend all four years developing a deep skill set in this exciting, emerging field.

Overview

What are authorities finding on the computers, flash drives and confiscated cell phones? How do you investigate the cloud for data breaches? What happens when a hacker compromises a multi-national network? How are drug traffickers using the Microsoft Xbox to communicate illicit activities? Digital devices and data are often the smoking guns in today's most ingenious crimes. Unlocking these secrets, preserving the evidence and upholding the laws of compliance are passions of those who go into the digital forensics field.

Student Academic Experience

Our Upside-Down Curriculum gets you started in a deep forensics curriculum, including Introduction to  Cybercrime and Digital Forensics and Computer & Network Security in your first year. You will develop expertise in computer and digital forensics; Android/iPhone/iPad mobile device forensics; digital forensic tools used by government/private companies; cybersecurity; and operating system, file system and network forensics. Our wide variety of computer forensics classes incorporates the software and tools used in the field, providing you with the skills and techniques you'll need for a successful career.

Faculty

Learn from digital forensics experts with extensive fieldwork experience and ongoing affiliations with the digital forensics community, including forensic consultants, authors of books and software, and they've developed procedures used nationally and internationally. They bring their expertise to the classroom with a passion for educating the next generation of digital forensics leaders. Meet our faculty.

Specializations

A specialization or a minor is a required part of your Computer and Digital Forensics education. Your faculty advisor will help you map out the best path to reach your desired career or graduate studies goals. You can choose to specialize in Computer Science, Cyber Investigation, Cybersecurity: Threats & Mitigation and Digital Forensic Science (BS/MS Five-Year Program), or choose to minor in one of our many options.

Internships & The LCDI

Each course takes a detailed, hands-on approach that prepares you to succeed in digital forensic internships. In addition to external internships, you can get unparalleled, hands-on experience in paid positions in Champlain's on-campus Senator Patrick Leahy Center for Digital Investigation (LCDI)—a fully equipped, state-of-the-art digital forensics laboratory where students engage in leading-edge research and have the opportunity to work with professional digital forensics investigators conducting actual investigations.

Why Computer and Digital Forensics at Champlain?

At Champlain College, you're being taught by industry experts, who are currently working in the field of Computer & Digital Forensics, and you use the same tools and techniques that corporate America and government agencies are using for their investigations. Over your four years in the Computer & Digital Forensics program, you'll gain unparalled  experience working on real live cases and technologies in the Senator Leahy Center for Digital Investigation (LCDI), Champlain's fully-equipped, state-of-the-art, digital forensics laboratory. You'll have the opportunity to work alongside professional digital forensics investigators and law enforcement officials conducting actual investigations. For examples, our students involved in the LCDI were some of the first people in the country working on the digital forensics of Google Glass. 

Employers are looking for people with highly developed skillsets in the field of digital forensics. Our students master content that they would not otherwise gain outside of a graduate program. Our specific specialized courses are small, and highly technical and pragmatic, allowing our graduates to gain hands-on experience and knowledge into the most cutting-edge digital forensics technologies.
