Teaching software quality assurance in an undergraduate software engineering program

At the Ecole de Technologie Superieure in Montreal, Canada, software quality assurance is taught in a software engineering undergraduate curriculum based on the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge. Courses stress the concept of the cost of quality and cover a wide spectrum of quality assurance techniques and tools. Students have an opportunity to measure cost of quality and work with industrial software quality assurance techniques and tools. The program provides a model upon which other universities can design their own software quality course.
