My brother has 6 years of working experience as an electronics engineer, but for last one year he has been working in computer field (i.e. C++, JAVA Web Developments etc.). Can he still apply as an electronic engineer instead of computer programmer?

Any info is appreciated...

I faced the same dilemma.

To be an electronics engineer in Canada he would need to take some technical exams.

If he has enough points as a computer programmer, then that is the way to do it.
That's what I did, and on arriving here I had three job offers within two weeks of
sending my resume to recruitment agencies. My starting salary was 53,000.

All the best

Yes, but an immigration official may want evidence that he has maintained his skills
in the field of electronic engineering during his absence from that profession.

Thinks Mr. David Cohen & Mr. Jim J. My broter is scoring 69 as computer prigrammer and 73 as electronics engineer. That is why I am biased for going for electronics enginer. As you mentioned that visa officer may need to have evidence that he (my brother) still maintains the skills of electronics field. I really do not know how can he convince the visa officer? Is there any way to do it I mean tests/exams etc..

With best regards
