The pronunciation of "use case" (software engineering)?

My professor (Korean) pronounced it as "yuss" case, but the person (also Korean) on a video training which I've been taking pronounces it as "yuz" case.

That is, my professor thought "use" as a noun, and the trainer thinks it as a verb. Which is correct?

"Use case" is a software engineering term.

    In that context, "use" modifies the noun "case."

    Since in the English language verbs cannot be used to modify nouns, that clearly makes "use" a noun in this "use case."

    @Best Answer:

    The answer is correct, the reasoning is not.

    Verbs can modify nouns, as in "press the record button." Record (emphasis on last syllable) is the verb meaning to start recording (not to be confused with "record", emphasis on first syllable) and modifies "button".
