Thanks Aslam,
Are Digital, Embedded related subjects not covered under ICT?

Also I found in various other threads that ICT also comprises of computing subjects like maths and numerical techniques.......... can these come under ICT.

what about data communication,wireless communication n fiber optic communication?

R all communication related technology topics included under ICT?

pls suggest, as ACS needs atleast 25% in every semester.

G: Are Digital, Embedded related subjects not covered under ICT?
Sometimes Maths comes under ICT: For example Digital Logic math counts, but I don't think statistics counts. It would depend on the detailed description of the course.

G: what about data communication,wireless communication n fiber optic communication?

Again, depends on the course description. If they are mostly talking about networking stacks, physical layer, etc. then it's IT related, but if it's just about antennas or radio techiniques, then not IT related. Does the course description specifically mention communication protocols?

G: R all communication related technology topics included under ICT?

No, not always. The course description would help ACS in knowing whether the course has a significant IT related content or it's mostly EE related.

Thanks Aslam,

So Gaurav, did you get your ACS assessment cleared? I am in a similar boat as you.

I was looking forward to apply for Australia Immigration and almost ready with papers to file the application.

In the online application form (https://www.acs.org.au/skillsapplication/index.cfm) there comes an option where one has to choose "Skills Application Type" . I am confused which one suits me the best : SKILLS or RPL?

My Qualification is Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Telecommunications from India.

And work wise I am working in software industry as a software engineer for almost 7 years now.

Please advice which is the correct option for me to file my papers? Do I need to file RPL assessment or normal assessment under SKILLS will be good for me?

Please advice.

Thanks

dUDE, go through the normal way no need to go via RPL.:)
I have cleared the ACS hurdle. U have graduated from which university?????
I had submitted a detailed BE syllabus of more than 108 pages for all semesters to ensure ACS considers it ICT related. :D

Also please let me know what should I add in my application apart from the listed documents below to make my application stronger and to make ACS believe that application is very satisfactory and true to its every content.

I am attaching:

Education Documents:
Schooling and College : All mark-sheets and certificates, college degree, character certificate, college leaving certificate

Work : Offer Letter, Joining Letter, Posting Letter, Confirmation Letter, Long Service Award Certificate, Recent Form 16, Recent Two salary slips, Technology related certification (Microsoft)

And Statutory Declaration of my job.

In all these are about 70 pages of documents.

Gaurav, I understand you also did engineering from a stream not related to IT( you work experience), I think you also did from electronics and telecommunications, I really request you please guide me in getting through the assessment process.

Thanks,
Aarkay

I have done my BE in Electronics.
U can include ur company's ID card along with ur manager's visiting card/ID card, salary bank account statement, previous employment payslips to make ur case formidable.
University of Mumbai has rich syllabus content and is better than most of the other Universities in India so I was confident that ACS will not ignore the Electronics degree.
All the best.

Is there a need to get the syllabi attested? I arranged for the old syllabi somehow contacting a college professor, the front cover of which is colored scanned while the pages inside were in actual B/W...is there a need to also get the syllabi attested before sending the hard copies?

Please do reply.. this is the last thing I am stuck with before sending my papers to ACS...

Thanks,
Aarkay

Apologies that i havnt read the whole thread. But i get the zyst of it.

I am en electronics Engineer and was so confused if i should get my assessment as Category B OR shall i go with RPL where you need to prepare a lot of documents like project reports and all that.

Finally I took the risk of applying in Group B.
And they have given me positive assessment equivalent to Group A. :clap2:

But for you reference:

I had:
4 years of Electronics Engineering
1 year of full time Post Graduation Diploma in Advanced software technology.
and 7+ years of IT Industry Experience.

I submitted all 4 years marksheet(Annual Marsheets) of the Engineering degree
Transcript of my PGD course.
And Employee references

So now its up to you how you want to go.

And by the way i did my Electronics degree from North Maharashtra Universty :)where we had smesters...still i submitted the Annual Marksheets..so they are pretty safe.

Yks

Get the syllabus attested, wen you are spending so much the cost of notary is hardly anything. It will make ur application as more authentic.

best wishes, revert back incase any doubts... :)

One last thing:

I have a question for ACS: on final submission of online application, the website says send - "A copy of the signed online ‘application record’ and the email acknowledgement with the reference number."

The 3 page application record that is printed out does not have any particular column to sign it - shall I just simply sign it anywhere at the end? Those who must have recently filed with ACS must have seen this. Kindly tell me where do I need to sign the application record?

Thanks

same boat me as well

HI..


Thanks for valuable inputs here on this thread.. especially the Gaurav case is encouraging :)

am also an engineer in electronics and communications and am also confused between Group B and RPL..

Like Gaurav, Has anybody else has initiated the process under group B being and electronics engineer??

in our engineering subjects, we had subjects of Labs as well, now would a computer programming lab or a microprocessor lab would be considered under ICT subjects?


Thought am going through:: I understand a Group A is core computers (ICT) in academic.. a RPL would be someone who did not have ICT at all (like a mechanical engineer.. or a commerce graduate) and is working in computer fields.. Now that leaves a question, who would fall in group B?? I think that is where electronics and communication guys fall.. who else can fit in group B??

Thanks!

Hi Aarkay..

I have few questions that i think you would be able to help me out with...

Did you get your ACS results? did you file through group B or RPL?

Did you prepare all by yourself or you took an agents help? and wat would you suggest for people like us who are from electronics and communications and are working in business/system analyst level??

My engineering subjects were almost similar to yours.. i did engineering from VTU (Karnataka)...lemme know..

thanks!!

Correction!!!!!!! I went thru group A :focus:
you were electronics and communication engineer and went through group A?? that's different than i Thought..

Well, i guess, it should mean that it would reeeeaallly be okay for me to go through group B?

is there a difference between them?? cuse just to be on safer side, i would want to go trough group B as I meet the criteria for group A and B (for Group A: if only they consider Electronics and communication as majors in ICT)

I think I would have atleast 20% of subjects related to ICT.. which is what they say in group B with 6 years of experience...

But some agent told me that i am eligible under RPL... and since then am confused..

Most of the agents are here to confue you and prove that u cannot do ur application on your own.
I had met 2 agents for consulting prior my visa application and I found out that I knew better than them.... so choice is yours.
If you feel safe u can go through Group B. As per my understanding group B is for those who have an Associate Degree - 3 year diploma/degree like BA, BCOM,BSc or those BE/Btech which have no relation with ICT like Mechanical/Civil Engineers etc.
Hope this helps you out. :tongue1:

Just a question out of curiosity - does it matter to DIAC if your application was assessed as group A or B?

wow.. okkay.. because group B says minor in ICT, i think i will feel safe going through that.. as i already satisfy the experience required for group B..

yes this does help.. thanks a lot Gaurav...

although.. am just starting the process and am sure i would have more questions on my way ahead.. so i may bother you again on one or the other things.. (of-course, only if i dont get an answer anywhere already posted in the forum)..

thanks again gaurav..
enjoy!
