Overview

Graduate Certificate in Software Quality Assurance and Test Engineering (Optional Co-op)

This program at Conestoga College will deepen students' understanding of the testing paradigms, methodologies and tools utilized throughout the software development process. 

Software quality assurance requires an awareness of what constitutes quality software from the point of view of an end user, a developer, and a business and how to create a process that can lead to quality software. 

Software quality control requires an awareness of how to most effectively and efficiently test the results of a software development project. 

As a comprehensive program, this graduate certificate will cover a wide range of topics but ready students for the in-demand software quality assurance and quality control field. 

The optional co-op stream includes one co-op work term.
