About

The Automated Software Testing in Java Certificate from EdX is offered in partnership with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) - DelftX.

Software testing gets a bad rap for being difficult, time-consuming, redundant, and above all - boring. But in fact, it is a proven way to ensure that your software will work flawlessly and meet release schedules.

In this two-course series, we will teach you automated software testing in an inspiring way. We will show you that testing is not as daunting a task as you might think, and how automated testing will make you a better developer who programs excellent software.

This program will cover software testing as it is practiced in industry. The first course will cover various techniques using JUnit, including unit testing, test adequacy and code coverage, mock objects, test-driven development, design for testability and test code quality. The second course will cover state-based and web testing, combinatorial testing, mutation testing, static analysis tools, and property-based testing.

This is a highly practical program and it suits software developers, QA engineers and software testers in Java development environment.

Job Outlook
  • Software testing skills are essential for developers who would like to become senior developers, especially in big tech companies.
  • Estimated annual salary of senior Java developers amounts to $116,885 USD per year (indeed.com, in the United States).
  • Estimated annual salary of software test engineers amounts to $95,159 USD per year (indeed.com, in the United States).
