Success Stories: A Lecturer from Bangladesh Working in Materials Engineering Wins NIW Status with Help from Experts at North America Immigration Law Group


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for your help.”

On April 16th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Lecturer in the Field of Materials Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Materials Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Lecturer

Country of Origin: Bangladesh

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: April 16th, 2022

Processing Time: 19 months, 22 days

Case Summary:

As an expert in the field of materials engineering, a lecturer from Bangladesh had a proposed endeavor to continue the investigation into the rheology and micromorphology of asphalt materials. He wanted to develop environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and high-performance asphalt binders and novel characterization techniques through microstructure characterization in order to increase the service life of asphalt pavements. The expert came to NAILG seeking help with his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition and our team was quick to respond. As soon as we had signed the retainer with him, we began collecting relevant information about his academic and professional achievements and found the following:

  • We found that his work is relevant to the transportation sector and also helps in reducing the negative impacts of asphalt production on the environment.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it contributes to improving the life cycle of asphalt pavements, which in turn has a positive impact on the environment.
  • His work has in fact been supported by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Korea Agency for Infrastructure Technology Advancement.
  • His work has resulted in 23 peer-reviewed journal articles (13 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored conference paper, and 1 book chapter.
  • At the same time, these publications have been cited a total of 140 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of materials engineering.
  • Furthermore, his work has also conducted at least 33 reviews, including reviews for international journals of repute.
  • He has also received 4 letters from other experts in the field. One of them had the following to say of him:

“Since a majority of the roads in the United States are constructed using asphalt, [the client’s] evaluation and comparison of two important asphalt pavement maintenance programs is valuable. His research helps the transportation agencies across the United States to select the best treatment methods, which automatically minimizes the heavy burden of highway and road maintenance on the U.S. economy.”

All of these factors helped prove that he was indeed a valuable resource and experienced researcher in his chosen field and thus won him the approval without an RFE despite the delay. We are thankful to him for choosing us and we wish him all the best.
