Case Summary:

Holder of a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him document his significant contributions to the United States by filing for an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Since it is our duty to evaluate our client’s qualifications and research background to verify the veracity of their credentials, we confirmed his achievements and submitted his NIW case to USCIS. He even retained our services to file another petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category. We highlighted his exceptional professional background and unparalleled experience, which are crucial for his current and future roles at USCIS.

After examining his qualifications, we discovered that our client is a senior project engineer in his chosen field and has an impressive publication record. His research has led to the publication of 19 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 patent application. These papers have been published in some of the most prestigious journals in his field. Additionally, he has conducted at least 18 reviews for journals and other scholars have cited his work in numerous published articles. According to Google Scholar, his work has been cited a total of 343 times.

We have also observed that our client as an expert in the field of networked sensors and sensing, intends to investigate the structural health prognosis and integrity of engineering structures such as aircraft, automobiles, and civil structures. His primary goal is to ensure their safe operation and prevent catastrophic structural failures. Therefore, we have concluded that his work is highly relevant in preventing loss of life due to structural damage and failure resulting from aging and wear.

Both of his cases were further supported by including recommendation letters that he obtained from his fellow experts in the field. One of the recommenders stated:

“[Client’s] record of success and achievements denote him as a leading networked sensor and sensing expert. His experience spanning over a decade has prepared him to develop cutting-edge acoustic emission-based systems to address issues such as aircraft safety and damage detection. To conclude, given his role in improving composite structure damage identification, his research is essential to the field and must be allowed to continue.”

His research on engineering structure integrity focuses on some of the most pressing issues faced by our nation and the world, such as ensuring the resilience of structures in the face of natural disasters. Thanks to our client’s expertise in non-destructive testing and structural health monitoring, his research is particularly innovative, leading to significant breakthroughs in the field of engineering structure integrity research and development.

Furthermore, his study has received funding from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), supporting projects related to the maintenance of future naval power and the preservation of national security. Therefore, our client’s research improves existing structural technology for the development of more durable and reliable structures.

Our team’s diligent efforts have paid off in presenting to the USCIS that our client’s extensive experience in the field of networked sensors and sensing has equipped him with vast knowledge and formidable skills, making him a valuable asset to any research background. This has set him apart as an essential researcher in his area of expertise. We would like to congratulate him on successfully securing both I-140 approvals and express our gratitude for choosing our services. We would also like to thank him for upgrading to the Premium Processing service, which resulted in his NIW case being adjudicated in just 28 days, instead of the usual 9-12 months. We wish him the best and hope that he receives his green card as soon as possible.
