System and Software Quality Engineering Research Group

System and Software Quality Engineering Research Group (SySoQual)


The System and Software Quality Engineering Research Group (SySoQual) is an industry-oriented research group. It is affiliated with the Department of Software Engineering in Atilim University.

Our overall objective is to develop new methodologies and tools to develop higher quality industrial software-intensive systems in a cost-effective manner. We adopt a rigorous, problem-driven, and realistic approach to every problem as we view industrial software development as an engineering discipline.

We have R&D expertise in various system and software engineering domains both in Turkey and also internationally.

Our Research Approach and Research Projects

We utilize action research and empirical approaches in our research and development (R&D) activities, since we are passionate about bridging software engineering academia and practice and we believe that the software engineering theory and techniques should be rigorously evaluated in industrial settings.

Research Seminars

The SySoQual group organizes regular research meetings and seminars. Below you can find the past and upcoming talks.
