Will I qualify?

Hi all;

I have a Master of Science in engineering. Right after my degree I worked as a junior construction manager for a year and a half then I got promoted to CPM and worked for the same company until mid 2013. After that I continued working as CPM for a different company.

Would my degree and work experience be sufficient for a positive assessment with Vetassess?

Are you sure which assessing authority would assess your occupation? Engineering occupations are normally assessed by Engineers Australia.

Most probably not.

Construction Project Manager (ANZSCO Code 133111)

This occupation requires a qualification which is assessed as comparable to the educational level of an Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) Bachelor degree or higher degree, in a field highly relevant to the nominated occupation.

In addition to this, applicants must have at least one year of post-qualification employment at an appropriate skill level completed in the last five years which is highly relevant to the nominated occupation. If the qualification(s) are not at the required educational level, or if the employment has been completed prior to the qualification, then the employment will be assessed below the required skill level.

A highly relevant field of study is Construction Project Management, which is the study of planning and controlling building projects (ASCED). General management degrees without underpinning or related studies in construction/civil engineering or building would not usually be positively assessed for this occupation. Qualifications in Architectural Studies with supporting highly relevant employment will be considered on a case-by case basis.

You might be well advised to consult a registered migration agent about possible visa strategies.
