Over this 5-month course, you'll acquire the skills you need to become an excellent QA Engineer. As a QA Engineer student, you'll have the opportunity to work on five real, industry-level projects including a web site, mobile application, database, and API - all specially written for the program to mimic popular apps. These projects will allow you to gain valuable experience working with bugs, preparing you for success in the industry. You will also have the chance to try to crash the applications, write bug reports, and automate testing to ensure that all products meet quality standards.
Project topics include:
- Web Application Testing: Attempt to crash the Urban Routes application, find interface bugs, and write bug reports in Jira.
- API Testing: Work with the Urban Grocers API to ensure proper connection between backend and frontend.
- Databases Testing: Test the API with Postman, understand REST architecture, JSON, and HTTP request and response structure to ensure correct functioning with the database.
- Mobile Testing: Use the Android Studio emulator to try and crash the Urban Grocers application.
- Testing Automation: Automate test writing with Routes and Selenium to ensure continuous improvement in GitHub.
In addition to educational projects, you will work on case studies for real companies, add professional-level projects to your portfolio, and get a chance to receive recommendations for LinkedIn
