Internship: test automation of C# in GUI applications

  • software
  • C#
  • GUI
  • framework
  • implementation

Educational level: bachelor/academic

Duration: 6 months


While a lot of work is put in the analysis, design and implementation of applications, testing the result is equally important in getting a qualitative good product. While it is practically impossible to test ‘everything’ a limited set of tests is defined that is deemed to be sufficient. With large projects, even this limited set might take days to get through, so usually a subset is used on release, especially when releases are made on regular basis. The risk of this approach is that faults remain unfound and cause failures in the field.


An alternative approach is to automate the tests as much as possible. Several techniques exist to test parts of the application, and there are even methods to automate the GUI interaction, and therefore replace manual application tests. In this internship this technique will be applied to a large medical project that is being developed and maintained within Demcon.


In detail the following is expected:

  • Analyse the applicability automated GUI testing in general and on the target project.
  • Analyse the available options in automatic GUI testing frameworks
  • Define a subset of tests in the current test plan that can be replaced by automatic tests
  • Implement tests in the automatic GUI testing framework
  • Document the approach, findings and best practices so that introduction in later projects will be easy.


The student will be supervised by engineers from the software engineering department.
