Hey

This is regarding the skills assessment. I am an integrity engineer in the oil and gas industry with 5+ years of experience. I have an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from India and an M.Sc. (in progress)

For those of you who don't know, an integrity engineer does technical work i.e. stress calculations and technical writing i.e. procedures, management systems for oil and gas assets. My career episodes will likely comprise of three projects involving the aforementioned works.

Do you think its ok for me to apply for a qualification assessment as a Mechanical engineer? And likely to receive a positive outcome for professional engineer based on qualification assessment alone? The ANZSCO spec for Industrial engineer seems to be a better fit. But as more states have Mechanical Engineer on their CSOL, I feel that would be better as I would have more options.

And I am not very particular about points for work experience as I could get to 60 without it.

Thanks

As long as your 3 narratives of episodes in your engineering life are all oriented towards Mechanical Engineering then you should be OK. Remember that you can always use one or more of your University Projects as the basis for your narrative.

Integrity Engineer is not a term that Engineers Australia use, so while you can use it as a Job Title, everything else should relate to Mechanical Engineering.

I suggest that you change the wording of your statement above. Engineers Australia require that a CDR is the work of the visa application and not a third party. You can provide coaching but you can't prepare a CDR.
