A Software Quality Course: The Breadth Approach

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


We present a Software Quality course taught in a MSc
program in Computer Science and Engineering. The course takes an
overview (‘breadth’) approach, reviewing the most important topics that
contribute to the quality of software. The course has been taught traditionally as well as online; we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of
both styles and point out what should be kept from the online experience.
We also discuss the students’ evaluation and feedback.
