Although I'm an electrical engineer, not a forensic engineer, we speak the same language and know and apply the same laws of physics. I've learned a lot by reading about their methodical methods of reasoning out cause and effect.
It's been good stuff for me, too. I think any of us in the technical professions are going to run into situations where they need to figure out what failed and how it failed. Learning even just a little bit about the tools and philosophy of forensic engineering would seem to be a win.
