General Field: Civil Engineering

Approval Notice Date: January 11th, 2022

Case Summary:

Our client from Bangladesh is one of the few leading civil engineers currently contributing invaluable research to the field. Her research advancing her proposed research work on developing Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) innovations is of great importance because it supports the growth and success of the global freight transportation industry.

When she approached North America Immigration Law Group, our first task was to run a thorough evaluation of her credentials and once we were certain of her suitability for the NIW visa category, we commenced preparing a solid case on her behalf by including the following details in her national interest waiver petition packet:

  • We noted that she holds a Ph.D. in civil engineering, and is currently employed as a spatial data scientist in a well-established consulting firm specializing in transport, power, and public-private associations.
  • Her research related to developing ITS innovations to provide novel improvements for both transportation systems overall and smart city technology has great substantial merit and national importance. Thus, her research is relevant to advancing the national and global freight industry.
  • In addition, she has a bright record of publishing. Her work has been published in 4 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored), 5 conference articles, and 2 book chapters, which altogether amassed a total of 23 citations.
  • Besides, she has asserted her preeminent position in the field through peer reviews, thereby by conducting 4 peer reviews for esteemed venues. This further proclaims her as a leader in her field.

“[Client] is a scientist currently conducting civil engineering research who has provided transformative advances in the measurement, understanding of, and future planning for freight transportation systems. Through her work on GPS-based data systems and other developments, she has provided the United States with indispensable advantages in truck freight data technology.”

The aforementioned excerpt has been taken out from one of the four submitted recommendation letters obtained by our client from her fellow spectacular experts in the field of civil engineering to corroborate that her research has provided novel solutions to the issues faced by the national transportation network, and thus, has vastly strengthened freight transportation and the national economy of the United States.

Therefore, she successfully achieved her NIW approval in just 8 months and 14 days from USCIS. We genuinely thank her for choosing our law firm and permitting us to be an influential part of this success story.
