Yes, it's possible to put the fun in functional requirements.
Being able to pinpoint your stakeholders expectations for a newly introduced or modified existing product is key to the success of the completed solution.

And this Requirements Engineering course is designed to help you do exactly that...
By developing the skills needed to work with stakeholders and other requirements actors, you will learn how to ensure the requirements are complete, unambiguous, realistic and testable.
