What is the Information Technology Engineers Examination?

The Information Technology Engineers Examination is one of the National Examination for IT technicians, which is conducted by the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry based on “Article 29, Paragraph 1 of the Act on Promotion of Information Processing”. The examination outline of the IPA states that those eligible examinees are “those who have the basic knowledge and skills necessary to become highly skilled IT personnel and have acquired the ability to use them practically”.

Let’s take a look at questions on the exam

Let’s take a look at questions on the Information Technology Engineers Examination.
The Information Technology Engineers Examination is divided into morning and afternoon sections, and we will introduce the questions for the morning section.

The morning session
Basic theory (basic theory, algorithms and programming)
Computer systems (computer components, system components, software and hardware)
Technology elements (human interface, multimedia, database, network, etc.)
Development technology (system development technology, software development management technology)
Project management (project management)
Service management (service management and system audit)
System strategy (system strategy and system planning)
Management strategy (management strategy management, technology strategy management, business industry)

Look at the past question

The following question is included in the Fundamental Information Technology Engineer’s Examination.

Question 2: Which operation inverts all the bits of an 8-bit value?

A: Make an exclusive OR with a string of bits in hexadecimal notation 00.
b: Make a logical oracle with the bit sequence in hexadecimal notation 00.
c: Make an EXCLUSIVE OR with the bit sequence of FF in hexadecimal notation.
d: Take a logical oracle with the bit sequence of FF in hexadecimal notation.

What do you think? Do you know the answer right away? This question is about logical operations.
(The correct answer is c)
If you have never seen this question before, it is likely to make you “I don’t understand the question being asked” or “I have no idea what you are talking about” As you can see, the range of questions on the Information Technology Engineers Examination is very broad and requires a wide range of knowledge.
