SQA Unit Framework:
The course comprises of three Units:
1. Software Development: Analysis and Design
2. Software Development: Implementation and Testing
3. Software Development: Project
Analysis and Design
This Unit introduces the Software Development Analysis and Design Process. It covers traditional and contemporary trends in software development methodologies including Waterfall, Prototyping, Incremental, Spiral, Rapid Application Development (RAD) and Agile. You will gain practical experience in using various Analysis and Design tools and be able to produce models and apply both the Waterfall and the Agile Development approaches.
Implementation and Testing
This Unit will introduce you to the principles and practices of computer programming including the stages in writing a computer program, the basic constructs of programming, algorithms, data types, data structures and testing techniques. You will develop your programming and computational thinking skills by implementing and testing practical solutions using an appropriate software development environment.
This Unit is designed to give you the opportunity to apply skills and knowledge of software analysis, design, implementation and testing to produce the components of a software product composed of multiple sub-programs. It is aimed at learners wishing to begin
preparing for a role as an entry-level software developer. You will analyse a problem, design the operation and interaction of program components, produce working code to meet requirements, and test a completed solution to prove functional operation.
