Firstly, Thanks everyone for sharing their experiences.

I am in kind of a tricky situation. It would be really helpful, if someone can shed some light on my situation.

I have a BTech in Mechanical Engineering with not much of related Computer Science work for which I am sure will be considered as a ICT Minor. I also have a Masters in Mechanical Engineering but with related computer science course work (More related to Machine Learning and Neural Networks). My Masters thesis is on implementing and developing Machine Learning techniques. I also have 3.5 Years full time experience in IT prior my Masters and almost 5 years experience as a Research Assistant (Part Time - 20 Hours a Week) in IT for which I am also providing the experience letter from my University. It's just ironic that I am getting a Mechanical Engineering degree without any knowledge on Mechanical Knowledge.

Could someone let me know if I can submit my documents for ACS directly or should I go through the process of RPL just to be on safer side?

Does anyone believe that I have a chance of getting my degree accessed as ICT Major?

Thanks for your reply. But don't you think my Masters should be assessed as a ICT Major since it has Computer Science course work? Ain't Machine Learning course work considered to be computer science?

I am same case as you, I have a B.Tech in Mechanical and had to do RPL. As I work in IT. You will need to submit your RPL, its very simple & nothing else will work.

Hi,

Hope all are keeping well.
Could you please guide me how to apply for only education assessment from VETASSESS after having only positive assessment from ACS. I have ACS assessment completed for ICT BA. I am BTECH in Mechanical Engineering.Thanks in advance.
