dc.description.abstractThis dissertation primarily focuses on the main aim which was to determine how keen students aged 18 - 35 are to engage with biometric security systems for the purposes of travel. There are four key objectives firstly to critically evaluate extant literature to identify the current status of biometric security systems, secondly to establish how students feel about using biometric security systems, thirdly to identify the key issues put forward by the student population, and finally to put forward recommendations relative to the key issues raised concerning the use of biometric security systems for the purposes of travel. Both primary and secondary research activities were conducted. The secondary data were obtained through using books, journals and other published materials relative to the research study. Primary research involved the use of online questionnaires to obtain primary data. Utilising Saunders, Lewis and Thornhill (2016) Research Onion model a qualitative research approach and inductive research strategy were adopted The results obtained from the 54 questionnaires were analysed using a thematic approach. It was interesting to discover that the findings provided a broad range of different views amongst respondents some positive and some negative about using biometric security systems for the purposes of travel. The conclusions that were gathered were used to determine whether the research aims and objectives had been addressed. The main conclusions draw from the research analysis indicated that respondents had the concerns surrounding the usage of biometric security systems for the purposes of travel regarding: health, privacy and security concerns. Taking these concerns into consideration it is evident that these would need to be improved upon in the future potentially through implementing changes to the systems. On the contrary, even though there were concerns raised there were also positive responses. A further conclusion that was reached included that respondents found the facial recognition, iris, and fingerprint recognition system were easy to use.en_US
