Biometrics education with hands-on labs
Biometrics is an emerging field via the automated use of unique and measurable physiological or behavioral characteristics to determine or verify identity. Biometrics has a variety of applications in governments, military and commercial areas. The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga offers a biometrics course for senior undergraduate students through integration of engineering, statistics, mathematics, policy and ethics. In order to expose students to the area of biometrics with minimum costs, we employ open-source based software to design a series of hands-on labs including fingerprint, face, handwriting, and voice biometrics. Our lab design can serve as a model of biometrics education for programs that have limited budget which may prohibit the use of expensive commercial biometrics devices and software.
