Twenty-two Bangladeshi IT talents have received international reorganization as they passed the 2nd IT Engineers Examination (ITEE) certificate, an international standardized examination of the IT professionals, presently recognized in 12 Asian countries.
The ITEE is basically a national standardized examination of Japan for IT professionals where five to six lakh IT students and IT professionals attended every year.
Nearly 500 local IT professionals and students sat for the second ITEE, held at Curzon Hall, Dhaka University, Computer Science and Engineering Department, Buet and Rajshahi University recently to get a global recognition of their IT skills, said a media release on Tuesday.
On the same day, the ITEE was held in the six member countries -- Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam -- simultaneously with the same question paper.
Bangladesh IT-Engineers Examination Center (BD-ITEC) under Posts, Telecommunications and Information Technology Ministry introduced the examination in the country under a project titled Capacity Building on ITEE Management with the help of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
“Among nearly 500 candidates, 22 local IT talents passed the second ITEE that gave them a global recognition to their IT skills and knowledge,” Dr Sk. Amzad Hossain, Project Director of BD-ITEC said while announcing the authorized result in Bangladesh today.
He hoped that the certificate of ITEE will help the local Bangladeshi IT professionals to get international jobs around the globe.
