Hi all!

I'm another one of those affected by the new SOL list. I studied Computer Systems Engineering (Beng) from Curtin University and just graduated last semester. As my results were only released on the 14th of July, unfortunately i'm unable to apply for PR as my course is accredited by EA as Engineering Professional Not Elsewhere Classifies (NEC). *sigh*. Which is no longer on the SOL list.

So i'm currently waiting on my TR based on Schedule 2.

I've come down to 3 options for the application of a PR.

1. Get a job and company sponsorship. (easier said than done)
2. Applying through Engineers Australia via CDR as an Engineering Technologist.
3. Get ACS accreditation

I'm waiting for the SMP as well.

Anyone else has any other suggestion?

As for point 3. How easy would it be to get ACS accreditation using the "Form PASA 1.0 (General)"? Does anyone have a clue?

Thanks In Advance!

Another poster recently posted in respect to having done computer studies and did not have a problem getting an ACS assessment.
But just like engineering assessments that the IEA has for more specific occupational streams studied, the ACS also identifies with various occupations.
If studying is to be looked at as a means to attempt being eligible for immigration, your situation is a good example of how there can be difficulties depending on what you study.
