Code 11472
Year 1
Semester S1
ECTS Credits 6
Workload PL(30H)/T(30H)
Scientific area Informatics
Entry requirements Basic knowledge on software engineering, namely requirements engineering, software development methodologies, and programming.
Learning outcomes This unit aims to provide methodological concepts related with software quality. The main goals are as follows: - to present aspects related with requirements management and its application on the software testing - to present quality oriented processes - to present an exhaustive practical cases, and scenarios on software quality methodologies It is expected that students may be able to: O1) design software processes focused with the product quality in mind O2) understand the relevance, significance, and limitation of software testing O3) design test cases for testing purposes without knowing the internal structure of code or program. O4) design test cases for testing purposes bases on the internal structure of code or program.
