Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for your efforts with my application. I appreciate it very much and it was a pleasure working with you.”

On May 18th, 2023, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a New Products and Applications Engineer in the Field of Civil Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Civil Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: New Products and Applications Engineer

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Virginia

Approval Notice Date: May 18th, 2023

Processing Time: 9 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

“[Client] is an outstanding civil engineer whose efforts have substantially benefited his employers, his academic field, and the United States alike. [Client’s] innovative methodologies have had a transformative effect on the optimization of site review, materials analysis, soil analysis, and cost-effective construction and resource allocation. In addition, his impressive record of professional and academic success positions him firmly among the top civil engineers in the United States today.”

The above snippet is extracted from one of the four recommendation letters our client, a new products and applications engineer, achieved in his field of civil engineering. He approached NAILG to help him acquire his EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition approval. We made sure that he received the best legal assistance for the same.

Although to be qualified for the EB1-B category, the petition must:

  • Show international recognition as being outstanding in a specific academic area;
  • The foreign national must have at least 3 years of experience in teaching or researching in the academic area;
  • While no labor certification is required, there must be an offer of ongoing employment from the sponsoring employer.

Therefore, after reviewing his credentials, we found that our client has gathered an awe-inspiring record of success:

  • He received his Ph.D. in civil engineering;
  • His research has resulted in 9 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 2 U.S. patents, 5 conference papers, and 1 book chapter;
  • His publications have been cited 136 times according to Google Scholar, thereby signifying that these publications are widely acknowledged and counted upon in the field of his expertise;
  • He has conducted at least 20 reviews.

Additionally, our client’s research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding approaches for improving the sustainability of the construction industry and the structures produced while reducing the impact this sector has on the environment. His strong background in soil stabilization, polymers, lime products, and laboratory testing has allowed his research to be particularly original, with applications such as the development of improved and more sustainable soil stabilization approaches.

We are therefore confident that he is more than capable of furthering his knowledge base in the chosen field and continuing his work in the United States of America. Thus, he received his EB-1B approval in just 9 days (thanks to premium processing).

We would like to thank him for trusting us during the whole immigration process and would like to send our best wishes for his future endeavors.
