General Field: Electrical Engineering

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: November 6th, 2023

Processing Time: 7 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A Micro Devices Program Manager engaged our diligent services to file an I-140 petition under the EB-2 category (National Interest Waiver) on his behalf. Given that our client had a Ph.D. in electrical engineering and extensive expertise in the same field, he qualified for this particular type of NIW visa. Thanks to the NIW‘s premium processing service upgrade, our client received the approval within 7 days of us filing the case.

We included all the necessary information in his NIW petition packet so that USCIS could proceed with the adjudication procedure:

  • We documented our client’s impressive record of citation count (56 citations) as well as publications (4 peer-reviewed journal articles, 7 conference papers, and 3 US patent applications). Furthermore, his work has also been granted funding by the NIH and the NSF. This support serves as proof that he is transforming imaging-based technologies and advancing solar cell efficiency, which is especially important for uses like satellite systems and lunar/Mars rovers. These meets pressing needs in the imaging and renewable energy sectors.
  • We evaluated his research which he aspires to continue here in the United States on investigating and developing novel micro devices to improve and enable technologies such as laser processing, autonomous driving, augmented reality/virtual reality, microscopy, and endoscopy. We deduced that his research is of great importance because it directly benefits rapidly growing technologies such as 3D printing, autonomous driving, and augmented reality/virtual reality, all of which rely on efficient optical engines for light modulation.
  • Due to his knowledge and expertise in micro devices, laser confocal microscopy, and laser materials processing, our client has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for authoritative journals in the field, and he has completed at least 12 reviews to date, signifying that he is seen as very knowledgeable in the field and an expert in topics related to his proposed endeavor.
  • Considering his research and qualification background, leadership qualities, and subjectmatter knowledge, our client is also exceptionally well-positioned to undertake this work. Thus, we also included two recommendation letters that unwaveringly helped him obtain his NIW application approved, advancing him toward the EB-2 win.

We were successful in persuading the USCIS that the research conducted by our client in the field of electrical engineering aligns with the current goals of the United States and firmly establishes the need for his continued research. We are appreciative of our client’s decision to work with North America Immigration Law Group on his NIW petition. We also wish him well as he pursues his goal of working in the field of electrical engineering.
