Biometrics is an emerging field of technology using unique and measurable physical, biological, or behavioral characteristics that can be processed to identify a person. It is a multidisciplinary subject that integrates engineering, statistics, mathematics, computing, psychology, and policy. The need for biometrics can be found in governments, in the military, and in commercial applications. The Electrical Engineering Department at the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD, has introduced a biometric signal processing course for senior-level undergraduate students and has developed a biometrics lab to support this course. In this paper, the authors present the course content, the newly developed biometric signal processing lab, and the interactive learning process of the biometric course. They discuss some of the challenges that were encountered in implementing the course and how they were overcome. They also provide some feedback from the course assessment.
