The Defectives University Challenge

The Defectives University Challenge enables students from universities to come together and have fun, compete, and learn a little about the software development lifecycle. After a brief introduction and some helpful pointers, teams will work together to find defects on specific websites against the clock with a chance to win ‘The Defectives University Challenge’ trophy for their university!

No previous knowledge of software testing is required to take part, as training will be given; participants simply need a general interest and appreciation of IT and a sense of fun.
