Rick Cents, Msc (BSc Computer Science)

Gratuated 2015
Digital Forensic Investigator Police

Before starting the master Forensic Science in 2013, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science. When I read about the master Forensic Science I thought it would be really interesting to apply the knowledge I learned during my Bachelor into the forensic field. What I really liked was the wide variety of topics and the possibility to specialise using elective courses and the research project.

Nick Laan MSc, (BSc. Background: Physics and Astronomy)

Gratuated 2011
PhD Student: Impact of Blood Droplets at University of Amsterdam

Before starting the Forensic Science programme, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physics. When I saw that there was a master in Forensic Science, I just knew I wanted to do that. It is an appealing field of work and not so abstract. For me the master’s programme became really challenging when I started the research project.

Remi Wieten MSc (BSc Applied Mathematics)

Gratuated 2014 
PhD Student - Probabilistic Decision-Making Based on Arguments at Utrecht University

I started the Master in Forensic Science in 2012 after completing my Bachelor in Mathematics. Though I liked the formality and rigor of theoretical mathematics, in the end I preferred to apply math to solve specific practical problems. When I found out about the Master I was immediately enthusiastic; I never knew such a Master existed, it combined many different disciplines and covered a variety of exciting subjects.

I started the master in Forensic Science in 2014 after completing a bachelor in Biomedical Engineering from Karachi, Pakistan. Forensic Science in Amsterdam was my first choice because it offers a unique opportunity of a multidisciplinary education together with a research specialisation according to the students’ backgrounds. Fortunately, I was accepted and awarded Amsterdam Merit Scholarship for the entire duration of the programme.
