Bright Opportunities for young engineers in Software Testing

Posted by GuduruKarthik on October 14th, 2014

IT industry is dynamic in nature. Any technology reaches to its popularity peak as immediately as launched and within no time drops down. But what keeps this industry going is the two pillars of Technology: Development and Testing. Earlier, both Testing and Software Development were considered to be almost similar jobs. But with emerging years, Testing has grown into a full-fledged discipline of its own. Indian engineers are now looking to gain expertise in Testing Tools by attending Software Testing Training Institutes in Chennai and other cities of India.

Apart from offering International exposure to testers, jobs in testing domain are also lucrative. With this kind of growth expectancy, young engineers are heading towards Software Testing courses. With Engineering colleges emphasizing on Software Development, students often end up having only basic knowledge about Testing Tools and techniques. And hence they rely on Software Testing Training Institutes in Chennai and other cities across the country. Software Testing courses provide practical methods, techniques to use leading testing tools making the aspirants industry ready. The responsibility of a Software Tester is to better the software by checking the software for bugs/errors, the flow of operation using certain parameters to determine whether the technical and business needs are met.

Software testing is defined as an investigation conducted to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of the product or service that is being tested. It provides clear view of the software to allow the business to understand the risks of software implementation. It involves the execution of a software component or system to evaluate its features. In general, testing shows the extent to which the system under test:

  • Meets requirements: both design and development

  • Responds to all types of inputs correctly

  • Completes the task in acceptable time

  • Installed and glitch free run in its environments intended

  • Achieves the expected result

TechnoChoice TalentSprint, a skill development institute offers in software testing courses focusing on experiential learning, hands-on projects to sharpen technological and problem solving skills. As a part of industry ready education, Business communication skills and aptitude training are blended into the program. To attain the skillset to perform the above job requirements, the testing courses cover ISTQB, QC & QTP and Selenium including the following modules:

  • Course Outline

    • Industry Overview

    • Fundamental Test Process

    • Testing tools

    • Test Techniques

    • Test Management

  • Project Outline

    • Project Kickoff

    • Project Planning

    • Test Design

    • System Test and  Regression Test

    • Test Closure

A software testing course enables a candidate to:

  • Carefully test a product or software to ensure it functions according to specifications and requirements

  • Test the product/software for its function, performance and service

  • Set up test environments, design test plans, develop test cases/use cases and execute them

  • Investigate problems surfaced during the process of testing and design and execute test cases appropriately

According to industry experts, in the coming years, the position of all organizations in the industry will be completely dependent on the quality capabilities pressing the responsibility on the need of best testers for the firms. Thus, today in IT industry professional software testers are in great demand. Graduates can either become part of an independent testing company or join an internal testing team in a leading firm.

I believe in Technical Training and soft skills development which is the key for today’s job market. I acquire my knowledge by referring back to companies such as TalentSprint, National Skill Development Corporation.
