Software testing

Individual course

Testing of software applications is an important activity of the software life-cycle, sometimes accounting for more than 50 % of the development effort. Throughout this course the students will be familiarised with the basic concepts, terminologies and techniques needed to conduct successful testing of software applications.

This course covers the many subjects such as testing process from requirements to deployment, test instrumentation and tools, developing test plans and managing the testing process. In addition, specialised topics like testing web applications, testing object-oriented software, and model-based testing will be discussed. Java-based testing languages and tools will be taught at the seminars for applying the concepts learned in practice.

Upon completion of this course, students will have the ability to:
