Default Education & Work Experience relation

Hi All,

Apologize for this long post, couldn't find a way to make it shorter.

I am looking into skilled worker option for new zealand immigration and going through the EOI , I see this -


F15. Are you claiming points for a qualification in one of the areas of absolute skills shortage?
In the relevant document of long term skill shortage I see -
Ocupation Group: ICT, Electronics and Telecommunications
Occupation/Bonus point criteris: Software and Applications Programmers nec
Long Term Skill Shortage List/Bonus points Requirements: Bachleor degree specialising in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and
Technology AND a minimum of three year's relevant post-qualification work experience

I have a Bachelors of Engineering in Electronics & Telecommunication (from India) and 8+ years experience as Software Engineer.

In the bonus point criteria it is mentioned as Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Technology AND a minimum of three year's relevant post-qualification work experience

I am not sure if I can claim this bonus point - since Electronics & Telecommunication seems different than Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Technology. Also, not sure if Software Engineer is a relevant post-qualification work experience? Any insight on this is appreciated.

Thank you
Joshua

Do you need to get your degree assessed? It may aways be assessed as equivalent to something on the list. I can't really help much as I'm not in the IT industry so not up on the differences between each occupation. I did a search for telecommunications on the LTSSL and came up with various qualifications and categories.
Do any 'fit' better
Sorry, think you need someone who is more into IT!
