[Image survey for IT engineer work] Skills that active IT engineers want IT engineer aspirants to acquire are “communication ability” and “ability to read and write documents”
Progate Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Representative: Masamichi Kato, hereinafter referred to as Progate) has conducted a survey of the image of IT engineers and aspiring IT engineers about their work as IT engineers. We will inform you of the survey results. I will.
■ Survey background
In the online programming learning service “Progate Path” where engineers can learn practical work, more than 30% of users are learning programming with the aim of finding employment or changing jobs to IT engineers according to the results of user surveys. However, as we proceeded with the provision of services, we conducted this survey based on the hypothesis that there may be a gap between the actual situation and image of engineering work between active IT engineers and aspiring IT engineers.

Of those who aim to become IT engineers, 55.5% are learning
programming. About half of them are aiming for without learning programming.
When 12,368 men and women of office workers and civil servants aged 20 to 59 were asked about programming, 11,571 people, excluding IT engineers, responded that they were “aiming to find a job as an IT engineer.” 4.2% did. Among them, 55.5% are learning programming, 44.5% are not learning programming, and about half are aiming to find a job or change jobs to IT engineers without learning programming. The number one reason for aiming to become an IT engineer, programming learners want to have “future potential” and “want to acquire a job”, and those who have not learned programming “want to work regardless of location”
Next, when we asked the 481 people who responded that they were “aiming to find a job as an engineer or change jobs,” with multiple answers as to why they wanted to become an IT engineer, programming learners answered, “I want to get a job ( 25.8%)”, “I have a future (25.8%)”, “I like programming (25.5%)”, and for non-programming learners, “I want a work style that is not bound by location (24.3%)”, “I want to make use of my IT skills ( 23.4%) and “Possible future (22.4%)” ranked in the top three respectively.
The skill that active IT engineers actually use in their work is “coding”, and the skill that aspiring IT engineers will use in their work is “communication ability”. The median number of selections is 4 for active IT engineers and 2 for aspiring IT engineers.
We surveyed 213 active IT engineers who have more than 3 years of experience as IT engineers and are using programming at work, and 211 aspiring IT engineers who are learning programming. In daily work, when we asked active IT engineers about “skills they use as IT engineers” and aspiring IT engineers about “skills they think IT engineers would use” with multiple answers, the top three answers were that IT engineers said ” “Coding”, “Communication Ability”, and “Reading and Writing Ability”, and IT engineer aspirants became “Communication Ability”, “Coding”, and “Computer Science”.
In addition, the median number of skills selected for multiple answers was 4 for active IT engineers and 2 for aspiring IT engineers. More than half of the active IT engineers selected “communication ability” and “the ability to read and write documents” as the skills they want IT engineer aspirants to acquire. The reason is the voice that emphasizes team development.
Next, when we asked 213 active IT engineers about the skills they would like IT engineers to acquire with multiple answers, more than half answered “communication skills (66.2%)” and “the ability to read and write documents ( 50.7%)”, resulting in a focus on skills that consider team development rather than coding. Here are some excerpts of the top 5 skills that were asked in the free-response description and why they chose each skill.

About Progate Path
Progate Path has been available since November 2022 as a programming learning service that allows you to learn more practically, and has been registered by more than 2,000 users so far. Since its
establishment in July 2014, it has taken a step forward from the online programming learning material “Progate”, which has been evaluated as an “entrance to programming learning”, and learning practical content that is indispensable for IT engineer work such as environment construction and debugging. is possible. In addition to acquiring practical skills, we will support Japan by producing excellent engineers from “Progate Path”, such as employment and job change support in “job search mode (β)” in cooperation with the infrastructure top that operates DMM WEBCAMP. We will work to solve the problem of IT human resource demand. ▶︎Progate
