Module Details


Testing is the process of systematically experimenting with an object (the SUT = System Under Test) in order to establish its quality, where quality means the degree of accordance to the intention or specification. This module covered the various test scenarios such as black box testing, white box testing, system-in-the-loop testing, and will provide an overview of current techniques for test generation, e.g. using coverage tools, scripting languages or graphical models such as state charts.

This module took place in two parts. In the first part, Professor Schlingloff presented the foundations of testing. In the second part, the students gave presentations on selected topics. Finally the students will be preparing dissertations based on the material they studied for their presentations.

This module is part of the Erasmus contract with Humboldt University, Berlin. Professor Schlingloff was in Swansea for two weeks and the module was run over the weekends November 24-26 and December 1-3.
