Hamilton Southeastern High School students in Julie Alano’s AP Computer Science class and Jeff Wilkins’ Engineering Design and Development class attended a Cyber-Forensics Seminar at the Purdue College of Technology in Anderson November 8. The students also visited the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Lab where they simulated an electrical circuit on the computer. Then the students wired and soldered the electrical circuit themselves.
As part of the seminar, Tim Wedge, a computer crime specialist at the National White Collar Crime Center, shared his expertise on how to outsmart high-tech criminals. “High Tech Crimes: The Challenges of Combating Computer Literate Criminals,” addressed the issues faced by law enforcement in combating high-tech crimes. He also gave an overview of possible career paths for students considering a future in computer forensics and included a demonstration of the digital-data recovery process.
Wedge, on permanent loan to Purdue University as part of an alliance with the Indiana State Police, the university and the National White Collar Crime Center, provides training and technical assistance to law enforcement to help combat computer criminals.

“The seminar provided students with information about what a career in cyber- forensics entails and what college path they should take in order to pursue that career. The students were also able to learn more about the different majors in college related to engineering and technology,” said Alano. “The students benefited from this as it is often difficult to determine what major is best for them. Electrical engineering, software engineering, computer science, computer and information technology and engineering technology are just a few options; and the names don’t always offer enough explanation.”
