If you have been assessed as an Engineering Technologist it means that your four year degree has been assessed as a three your degree in Australian. I probably also reflects your work experience as well. Your chances of getting an invitation to apply for a visa is still good.

Hi guys just want to find out how much points an engineering technologist get. Is it 15 or 10. I believe Jeremy Hooper has said 15, How did you find it was 15?. I have Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree from UK but it 3 years like most UK Eng degrees and apparently its not equal to a 4 year Aus Eng degree, so I can apply only for for a eng technologist. Has anyone been in this situation and got 15 points eng tech.

An Engineering Technology degree is a 3 year degree in Australia. A professional Engineering degree is 4 years. As far as I know that is the same in the UK.

Migration Regulations Schedule 6 state that you get 15 points for a Bachelor or Master degree. I have experience in assessing people for either Engineer or Engineering Technology. I have a Bachelor Degree in Engineering and a Master in Science. I also call Engineers Australia directly if I have any questions regarding the Australian Qualifications Framework level of non-Australian qualifications.

Thank you for your reply Jeremy. By any chance do you know how much points you get for an engineering technology degree. (15/10)

No in Uk its actually different there bachelors of engineering degree which is 3 years but there is alternative course called master of engineer 4 years which is actually an undergraduate masters. For example someone with a bachelors degree can switch to masters course at the end of second year. (Btw it is not a postgraduate masters which are called master of science in england and you have to be graduated to apply for that). Actually a lot of students do the MEng instead of the BEng and even the lecturers advise to do the MEng but never told me properly the reason why.
