It is very important that biometrics education, particularly at the undergraduate level, keeps pace with the rapidly growing global market. This paper describes a senior level project in face biometrics that fits in a variety of courses in order to reach out to many students. The project has broad learning outcomes, namely, enhanced application of math skills, improved software implementation skills, enhanced communication skills, increased interest in biometrics, and enhanced ability to carry out open-ended design. Assessment results based on the analysis of the student projects and student surveys related to the learning outcomes show that the project was very successful.
