NSW Health Pathology congratulates UTS on the 25th anniversary of the Bachelor of Forensic Science degree and the 20th anniversary of the UTS Centre for Forensic Science.

This degree was the first of its kind in Aus­tralia and is recog­nised for pro­duc­ing future lead­ers in the areas of biol­o­gy, chem­istry, crime scene inves­ti­ga­tion, dig­i­tal foren­sic sci­ence, research and innovation.

Act­ing Direc­tor of NSW Health Pathology’s Foren­sic & Ana­lyt­i­cal Sci­ence Ser­vice, Dr Stephanie Hales, was in the first group of foren­sic sci­ence grad­u­ates and also com­plet­ed her PhD in gun­shot residue analy­sis at UTS.

Stephanie then took up one of the first civil­ian foren­sic sci­ence posi­tions at NSW Police and was instru­men­tal in set­ting up their gun­shot residue test­ing capa­bil­i­ty across the state.

“The foren­sic pro­gram at UTS has clear­ly helped shape my career and now work­ing for one of the biggest employ­ers of foren­sic sci­ence grad­u­ates at the Foren­sic & Ana­lyt­i­cal Sci­ence Ser­vice I very much ben­e­fit from the qual­i­ty of the UTS grad­u­ates,” Stephanie said.

“UTS is respon­si­ble for con­sis­tent­ly chal­leng­ing the field to be bet­ter and for dri­ving piv­otal research with indus­try part­ners to make a difference.

“On behalf of NSW Health Pathol­o­gy, we val­ue immense­ly the part­ner­ship with UTS and hope it con­tin­ues to thrive.”
