|Objective||The aim of the course is to understand the importance of the control if the software is designed in respect to user requirements. The main theories on quality and test processes of software engineering are represented and these theories are used for project development process. They involves software quality requirements, software test techniques, test flow and processes. An individual or group-based project is realized, which provides using all the theories learned during the semester.|
