Department of CoE in collaboration with AIUB Community of Engineering Students (ACES) organized a seminar on “Information Technology Engineers Examination (ITEE)” which was held at the Multipurpose Hall (Annex 7, American International University-Bangladesh). The goal of this seminar was to convey informative knowledge about ITEE and its benefits as a national level certification with the students.
Prof. Dr A.B.M. Siddique Hossain Sir (Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) inaugurated the seminar by welcoming the participants and delivering a few words about the major contributions of Japanese civilization in the IT sector and also mentioned a few important reasons as to what students will be able to accomplish by appearing for the exam. Afterwards, the first speaker Mr Ryo Saito (Deputy Team Leader, ITEE JICA Project) came forward and conversed about some of the accomplishments of ITEE and also informed the participants about the importance of the certification. He also introduced the participants to the exams that ITEE organises in Bangladesh; namely the level 1 IP exam and level 2 FE exam. He later emphasised on the fact that the FE exam would be the main focus of the seminar and that it should be the target for majority of the students. He then called Mr Yukinobu Miyamoto (Associate Professor, Kobe Institute of Computing and ITEE expert) on to the stage to continue. Mr Yukinobu Miyamoto introduced himself and described the methods of “Hanpuku” (Japanese for repetition) using which students and candidates will be able to prepare for the FE exam. He later elaborated on the question patterns of the FE exams and gave the participants of the seminar a rundown of the schedule of intensive training programs that they are offering and also shared various resources that candidates will be able to use to prepare for certain topics in the exam related to strategy and management, since these were the areas in which most candidates from Bangladesh struggled to pass. Afterwards, Mr S.M. Nafi (Senior PR Officer, ITEE JICA Project Team) and Md. Bellal Hossain (MIS Coordinator, ITEE JICA Project Team) came forward on stage to inform expected candidates about the payment process and application process for the ITEE level 2 exam. This was followed by a Q&A segment conducted by all of the members of ITEE present at the seminar. Mr. Safayet Ahmed (Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, Motivator of ACES), Mr Abir Ahmed (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) and Mohammad Zohurul Islam (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) graced the ceremony with their presence.
Lastly, Mr Safayet Ahmed (Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, Motivator of ACES) and Mr Abir Ahmed (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) were requested to come forward and present the token of appreciation to the honourable guests. The seminar came to an end with a group photograph.
