      Hi Maam, railway signalling/comms engineer po ako. Sa mga telco, I think your best bet would be Victoria or NSW kasi sa dami ng mga tao dun hence dami din ng network infrastructure ang need ng engineering. However, un ay if open pa for nomination ung mga said States. Otherwise, ok din naman dito sa WA. Developing ang City of Perth, madaming projects dito ngayon. In the case of telecommunications providers, madami naman sila, may big three and then may mga smaller players. Hope this helps. thanks

      Having said all that. I was accredited as an electronics engineer by Engineers Australia.

    Hi Sir!

    I'd like to ask a quest about the Temporary Graduate Visa (18 mos).
    Besides the basic requirements: 2 years study, cricos-course registered, etc.
    Should the Australian course I studied have to be on the MLTSSL?
    because in my case, I have a degree in Engg here in the Philippines.
    Can I use my PH degree for nomination? or must be the one I studied in Australia?

    Hoping for a positive response.

    Thank you!

      Sorry it took me a while before I reply to your query. Do not base your decision solely on my point of view. Get counsel from others as well.

      To begin with everything else, try calculating how much points you will get when you completed your study. Education is one way to increase points but there are other sources of points as well.

      You should take a course that will affect your chances to get a PR. Doing a course from the list is an option but it doesn't necessarily increase your points.

      An engineering degree in Australia is quite lengthy (maybe 2 years at minimum) but worth it. Your Philippines engineering degree is not recognized in Australia so you have to get yourself assessed by Engineers Australia by means of a CDR. Go to the website and get the requirements and all the things you need to get it done.

      In the end, it is all about the points you have accumulated. Get about 70 points and everything will be easy. Thanks.
