Today many educational institutions use the manual system of taking attendance in which student writes their names and matric numbers on a sheet of paper or in an attendance sheet. To eradicate the problem associated with the manual attendance system such as student not coming to class, writing of names for students who are not present, an automated approach is implemented through biometric technology embedded with a window application which is fully explained in this work. This paper presents design and construction of student attendance management system. The developed system comprises of a timekeeping system that will register every student in a database. The database itself will be managed by the department, so that reports, either individual or collective, can be issued whenever they are needed on both physical and electronic format. Also, these reports would be used to create statistics and further help the growth of the academic process.
