Computer engineering expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in computer science, computer hardware-software integration, software engineering, electrical engineering, and/or as a computer forensic expert. A computer engineering expert witness needs to not only have substantive expertise, but must also possess the ability to explain electronic evidence and technology to jurors. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the legal team may request a technologist with prior expert witness experience.
The field of computer engineering is aimed at developing computer hardware and software, and integrates the fields of computer science and electronic engineering. Computer engineers focus on how computer systems work, and also how these systems integrate into the larger picture.
Court cases requiring computer engineering expert witness services can involve intellectual property litigation, such as software copyright, patent infringement, or trade secret disputes. A criminal investigation involving fraud or electronic discovery data can call for a computer forensic investigation. Litigation support by a computer engineering expert could include forensic analysis, reverse engineering, expert report preparation, expert opinion, depositions, and courtroom testimony. In addition, a law firm may request a computer expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
