    CS 490M Software Testing. Projects Overview.

  • Why sponsored projects? [1]Lectures cover widely applicable, generic material.Lectures do not cover product or company specific material such as test infrastructure, writing special types of tests such as for I/O drivers, interfacing with specific products such as a cardiac device, etc.

    CS 490M Software Testing. Projects Overview.

  • Why sponsored projects? [2]Sponsored projects provide a peek into the real world.access to engineers in the fieldopportunity to solve real world problemsopportunity to evaluate how classroom material fits in the real world.Sponsored projects strengthen your job prospects and help you decide whether or not you want to go to the graduate school!

    CS 490M Software Testing. Projects Overview.

  • Why teams?Most courses focus on individual learning mode.In real life, one needs to work in teams to solve complex problems. This requires a level of communication skills, planning, commitment, organization, etc. much beyond that required in individual learning mode.Team-based projects allow students to acquire or enhance their skills to work in small teams.
