    I’m guessing you’ll be entering as a “Computer Systems Analyst”? Historically, an EE degree has been good enough for that. Don’t forget to bring your actual diploma, etc etc.

      Thank you for the input! I was reading that the job title needs to match the degree but I am not sure if that is a hard requirment..

      TN doesn’t use “normal” job titles. Instead, it has a list of professions that qualify for this status with CSA being a catch-all for just about anything involving teaching computers to do things, and because it’s such a wide category, the list of acceptable degrees is also relatively wide. It’s on your employer’s lawyers to draft the letter correctly, of course.

      Thank you for the detailed reply again. So in this case, should the offer letter have the job title as sr analyst or should I ask the title to he changed to more of a sr analytics engineer title so it matches my engineering background?

      That I don’t know. What I said was kind of a generic reassurance based on a couple of cases I’ve seen first hand, but is in no way a legal advice. I suggest trusting the lawyers.
