Skill assessment Electronics Engineer

I have done electronics engineering in 1999, then completed MSC Computing in 2001. Have 11 plus years of experience in IT (Software) and IT Projects. What will be my numbers of years of experience counted by skills assessments will it be full 11 years or less due to my first degree in electronics although after which i did MSc computing, all my 11 years is after MSc computing.

As per my total with 11 years IT Exp i am getting 55 points what are my chances to apply for Australia PR or get a State Sponsorship? How much points i will get for 11 Years IT Experience?

Your work experience must be closely related to your nominated occupation. If you are planning to apply as an Electronics engineer then none of your IT experience will be considered, because they are different occupations. IMO you have a better chance of gaining points as an IT professional.

If your current occupation closely related to your studies during your MCS then ACS will deduct 2 years for "skilling" and you will have 9 years work experience for points.
