Course Description and Objectives
The main objective of the course is to introduce you to the area of
Biometrics. Biometrics refers to the identification of an individual based
on his/her physiological characteristics, like a fingerprint, face, voice or
behavior like handwriting or keystroke patterns. Because biometric
characteristics are unique to each individual, they can be used to prevent
theft of fraud. In addition, unlike a password or a PIN, a biometric cannot
be lost, stolen, or recreated. This course is primarily intended for
**highly motivated** students who are interested in working on the area
of Biometrics. There are many problems in this area suitable for
investigation by graduate students leading to a master thesis or

Each student would be expected to participate actively in the presentations
of the course material during the semester. Presentations should be
professional as if they were presented in a formal conference (i.e., slides,
projector). The student who is responsible for presenting a subject on a
specific day would be expected to be well prepared and have a good
understanding of the material. Every other student would be expected to have
read the same material and participate in class discussion. The course also
requires that each student completes two project assignments. We will
discuss with you possible project ideas but you are also encouraged to
discuss with us your own project ideas. Each student would be required to
turn in a report upon the completion of his/her project and possibly give
