Course contents at a glance

The term biometrics is derived from the Greek words bios (life) and mÚtron (measure).

Biometrics refers to the study and use of methods to detect and measure the characteristics of living organisms and draw comparative classifications and laws.

Biometrics finds applications in biology, medicine, genetics, in the agricultural and forestry sciences, environmental science and other related fields.

The modern meaning of the term biometrics used in Computer Science, and consequently of the term biometric system, explicitly mainly refers to the automatic identification or verification of the identity of a person based on physical or behavioral characteristics.

The course provides basic knowledge and skills necessary for the design and development of automated systems for the recognition of people on the based biometric features.

Important note: Proficiency in programming is required to be able to carry out the final project
