Skill Assessment as Radio or Telecom Engineer?

Electronics Engineers are part of both new and old sol.
My skill assessment application is in the Queue of Engineers Australia.

I heard that for my skills and education, Engineers Australia is proposing that I can only be assessed Telecom Engineer or Radio Engineer(which is a specialization of Electronics Engineers and have same ASCO Code as per old SOL)

Now, I have 2 questions:
  • If I get my self assessed as Radio Engineer (Specialization of Electronics Engineer), will I still be able for Immigration and will I be treated like Electronics Engineers in immigration process?
  • And If I get assessment as Telecom Engineer, how much points will I get for occupation in visa point test?

I'm not familiar with any inhouse finessing that the IEA would apply but as far as immigration goes they would have needed to issue an assessment with the appropriate ASCO code for the old SOL.

If they issue an assessment for people applying in the future the immigration requirement is that it will need to be for an occupation on the new SOL with an approriate ANZSCO code.
If they make a reference to some specialisation but it still has the appropriate ANZSCO code for an occupation on the SOL, that is what is important for you.

It seems that telecommunications engineering is a separate ANZSCO occupation actually coded closer to IT occupations than engineering and so it remains to be seen who will be the assessing authority.
For that and points for the various occupations, migration plans and sponsorship, Immi have yet to release the information.
