QA Engineering Bootcamp
5-month part-time online program for beginners
What is QA?
QA Engineers play a vital role in the tech industry—they design and run tests to catch bugs and work with developers to fix them.
Bugs destroy a user’s experience! If you’ve ever had an app or webpage crash, you’ll know exactly what we mean. In an app, it can be a mere annoyance, but software is everywhere from cars to power stations. In some cases, bugs can be life-threatening.
