Electronic Engineer (04 year bachelor) assessed as Engineering Technologist

I have Electronic Engineer (04 year) degree and having 09 years experience as working for electrical substations. i submitted my CDR and mentioned to assess as electrical engineer.

Engineering Austrailia assess myself as engineering technologist and qualification as equivalant to bachelor.

My questions?
Employers in austrailia will refer to engineering austrailia outcome and would impact in Job and i cannot work as professional engineer?

my degree (04 years) will be considered as 03 years in Austrailia?

Hi Atif,

I don't think employers will look at your occupation assessment; Occupation assessment is only for use by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. I'm not 100% positive though, but in my line of work (Software Engineering) the assessment is never required or brought up during job search.

Good luck!

Hello Friends,

I am planning to migrate to Australia and have applied for my skill assessment with EA.

However, even though I applied for the occupational category of Professional Electrical Engineer, EA assessed me as Engineering technologist.
EA has given me an option to resubmit the CDR for a positive outcome of Professional Electrical Engineer.

I have a Bachelors degree in Electrical and Electronics taken from India(4 years) & since then, I have been working as a Production Engineer in an Electrical and Electronics product mfg for past 6 years.

I have read in few threads that with occupation as Engineering technologist (233914), I can claim only 10 points for my education as it is equivalent to an advanced diploma, whereas occupation category of Professional Engineer will fetch 15 points as it is equivalent to bachelors degree. Is this true?

Only if I get 15 points for educational qualification, will I pass the points test criteria.

I am bit stressed about this and request you to advice me whether Engineering technologist will get me 15 points.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Hi pals. Are you trying to say that EA can suggest the actual category for applicants? I think it is very good idea and helps to save money.
