SDET with 5 years of experience in software testing & BS in Computer Science. I'm also not very good at filling out "About Me" sections. I'm not as much of an expert as I'd like to be, so am trying to soak up knowledge as fast as I can while balancing work and "real life".

comment Distinguishing between abbrasive managment style and bullying - when is it bullying?
On the contrary - understanding why the coop office should care lets you speak from their perspective. Pointing out the risk (and CCing the coordinator's manager) can be a powerful tool for engagement. (Edited to remove unnecessary harshness, with apologies)

comment Is writing unit-tests difficult for me as a QA-engineer?
Very, very good! I am an SDET (Software Development Engineer in Test), and I only write unit and component level tests when I have pair-programmed the feature with a product-code focused developer. The person who writes the code should write the unit tests. "Agile Testing" is a good book for looking at the role of a tester / QA engineer next to the roles of developers.

I disagree that the coop office shouldn't be expected to help. The coop office has a strong interest in students having valuable experiences in their coop opportunities, as this may have a strong impact on the value of their education and, therefore, whether or not the school is viewed as a good school. Therefore, they need to understand this student's experience so they can decide if they should continue working to place students with this business or sever the relationship. Writing up how the manager's behavior helps or hinders learning could be valuable to the people at the coop office.

comment QA Manager with no programming background looking to self-educate in SQE
I would recommend going the other direction - unit tests up. UI testing is one of the most challenging test disciplines to do well, and requires a solid understanding of object-oriented programming IME.
