"Breaking the Myth: an interactive
information portal for Sickle Cell awareness" by Obinna Atu-Kwamena Chuku
submitted to the Department of Computer Science, 2006
Abstract: This dissertation discusses how the
customization of information can be used to enhance general
public awareness. Using Sickle Cell as a case study, it focuses
on designing a system that will enhance current methods of
education about the disease in order to make it more accessible
to a larger group of people. It elaborates on the rational
behind the system, the system design and the technologies used.
The dissertation concludes by discussing further work that can
be carried out as an extension to this system.
Systems: Strengthening Time Logging security in payroll"
by Voke Ransom Anighoro
Dissertation submitted to the Department of Computer Science, 2006
Abstract: This project involves the planning, designing,
implementing and testing of a time logging module of a payroll
system using biometrics as a secured form of identification.
This project seeks to tighten the security at the time logging
stages of the payroll system thus proving that effective time
logging in payroll can result in effective productivity forecast
and also proper financial management. This project seeks to
fully tighten the security involved in the time logging process
of payroll by designing a totally fool proof time logging module
which proves against all odds that time can be effectively
logged thus improving the effectiveness of the payroll system
The fundamental architecture of this system consists of a
biometric fingerprint scanner hardware interfaced with the
biometric payroll application which communicates with a database
that holds fingerprint templates of authorized users for secured
verification and authentication purposes. Communication between
the biometric fingerprint scanner and the biometric payroll
application is done via USB and instructions sent by the
fingerprint scanner will be interpreted by the SDK and converted
into useful functions which the payroll application understands.
On another level there is the Administration application which
performs administrative functions, interfaces with the same
database as the biometric payroll application and generates
useful reports for decision makers or HRM persons in the
