Hello,

I am planning to apply for ANZSCO 261313. I have completed BE in electronics engineering from University of Mumbai with following courses.

1. Mathematics(for 5 SEMs)
2. VLSI (2 SEMS)
3. Wireless Communication
4. Microwave and Fibre optic Communication
5. ECAD (2 SEMS)
6. Filter Theory
7. Numerical Techniques
6. Computer Organisation
7. Microprocessors & Microcontrollers (2 SEMs)
8. UNIX, C,C++ (2 SEMs)
9. Digital Design (2 SEMs)
10. Robotics
11. Basics of Communication Engineering
12. Continuous Signals & Systems
13. Embedded Systems
13. Project (Based on Embedded software)

Also, I have complete Master of Science (MS) in Computer Engineering with following courses from United States-
1. Compilers
2. Computer System software
3. Real time systems
4. Digital VLSI
5. Computer Architecture
6. Advanced computer architecture
7. Thesis (Computer architecture)

I have worked in a large Indian IT company for 2.2 years after BE. Currently, I am working as a software engineer at a Semiconductor company since 5.3 years.

I am thinking of getting skills/work exp assessed through ACS. Here are my questions-
1. There are many individuals with BE electronics getting positive assessment from ACS. However, they lost 4 years while getting qualified. Is that the case always? Are there any instances where Electronics graduates are classified as ICT major with only 2 years deducted.
2. I have completed Master in Computer Engineering. I had few courses from Computer Science department. Would that help in getting me classified as ICT major (2 years, not 4)?
3. How exactly is ICT major/minor decided? From the booklet on ACS website, a 4-year bachelor's degree holder with 25% ICT content is an ICT major. However, what exactly is ICT content? Is 'ICT content' fixed or is it dependent on ANZSCO code that you are applying for?
4. I have worked as Graduate Research assistant during masters for four semesters (20 hours/week). Would that be useful towards total experience in ACS assessment?

Thanks

Hi,

Hope the below response helps:

1. There are many individuals with BE electronics getting positive assessment from ACS. However, they lost 4 years while getting qualified. Is that the case always? Are there any instances where Electronics graduates are classified as ICT major with only 2 years deducted.
Ans: Technically for electronics they will deduct 4 Yrs as its not closely related to the ICT
2. I have completed Master in Computer Engineering. I had few courses from Computer Science department. Would that help in getting me classified as ICT major (2 years, not 4)?
Ans: I believe as ICT Major with 2 years.
3. How exactly is ICT major/minor decided? From the booklet on ACS website, a 4-year bachelor's degree holder with 25% ICT content is an ICT major. However, what exactly is ICT content? Is 'ICT content' fixed or is it dependent on ANZSCO code that you are applying for?
Yes refer to the "ANZSCO Code Information - 2017 V4.pdf". for each code it has a "Description of Closely Related Core ICT Units:" and "Description of Additional Closely Related ICT Units"
4. I have worked as Graduate Research assistant during masters for four semesters (20 hours/week). Would that be useful towards total experience in ACS assessment?
Not sure about this.
