The thesis will address current issues with modern industry regarding how workplace culture creates erroneous software that affects the lives of the consumers. The thesis will include a research paper that will analyze two case studies, the Boeing 737 Max plane crashes and a Social Security leak that took place in Missouri as a means of identifying comparisons that showcase the current culture.
Then a technical report lays out a groundwork for a potential course to better educate students in coding and testing. Divided in two halves, the course will focus on teaching machine learning algorithms and concepts in the first half, while the second half focuses on testing. Over the entire semester, an overarching project over the course of the semester to replicate a workplace environment for students to experience following the material learned in the course.
