how do i get into computer forensics? more specifically how do i become a computer forensics investigator?

By | November 29, 2015

i am currently doing a degree in software engineering. i really want to get into computer forensics.to be more specific i would like to become a computer forensics investigator. so where should i go from here? would it be a good idea to obtain a masters degree in criminal justice after i finish engineering? or is there an alternate path i should take? would it be a better idea to obtain a masters degree in computer forensics itself? what would you suggest i do when i complete my engineering. i understand that experience is extremely important but from what ive lerant online one of the main criteria for a computer forensic investigator is an extensice knowledge of computer science. so would it also be advisable to obtain a masters degree in criminal justice as well as something else? possibly a masters degree in computer engineering as well? as of now a computer investigator is a serious career opton for me so i am not taking this lightly at all. i would really appreciate any info amybody might be able to give me

    What you mean by Computer Forensic? Forensic Science or Network Infracture?

    Forensic Science : Tracking Criminal, DNA Matching, Making Prediction,

    Network Infracture: Increase Network security, prevent hacking, router stuff.

    Not many colleges in U.S offer Forensic Science. One in ND, CA, IL, FL
