Success Stories: A Structural Engineer in Civil Engineering from Bangladesh Gets NIW Approval with Our Expert Help


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for all the work you guys have done.”

On August 19th, 2021, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Structural Engineer in the Field of Civil Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Civil Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Structural Engineer

Country of Origin: Bangladesh

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Florida

Approval Notice Date: August 19th, 2021

Processing Time: 10 months, 22 days

Case Summary:

“The United States benefits greatly from the development of more sustainable construction materials and methods. As it stands, the U.S. cement industry is the third-largest in the world and is a major producer of industrial process-related carbon emissions. [The client’s] research answers to the national need to make “green” alternatives to conventional concrete.”

“[The client’s] research into analytical models of pervious concrete microstructure and mechanics accelerates the broader implementation of this material in civil engineering projects in the United States. [Client’s] research facilitating the broader implementation of this material into construction projects directly contributes to civil engineering and environmental interests in the United States.”

“By developing an accurate representative model of a physical system on a computer, examining the model by means of numerical analysis, and interpreting the results, [the client] expedites the process of optimizing the next generation of sustainable concrete.”

These are words of support by experts for a client who came to us in September of 2020, seeking help with his NIW (National Interest Waiver) case. We quickly discovered that he was a structural engineer in the field of civil engineering and as an expert in the field of civil engineering, his proposed endeavor is to continue his research on designing and implementing enhanced previous concrete through methods such as microstructure modeling for sustainable construction applications.

Our team was also able to find that among other applications, his research is relevant to improving and expanding the implementation of sustainable concrete, increasing groundwater levels, improving the drainage of water from precipitation, and reducing plastic waste. Thus, this research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it bolsters the global sustainable concrete industry and helps to decrease the amount of plastic waste worldwide. He informed us that his research in civil engineering has focused primarily on modeling and improving pervious concrete, thereby improving its production and implementation. His work, therefore, benefits both the global economy as well as the worldwide endeavor of reducing plastic waste.

Besides, we noted our client’s current employer, which is well known for its role as a national leader in structural engineering and inspection for several types of construction projects including commercial, residential, legal, and industrial, demonstrates that he is well-positioned in his company, signifying his exceptional performance in the field.

On the other hand, his academic and professional career has yielded 4 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored). Not only this, but his research has also gone on to influence his peers. That is, his publications have been cited a total of 31 times according to Google Scholar.

Our attorney used this information to put together a convincing petition on his behalf winning him approval from the adjudicating authorities at USCIS. We are proud and thankful to him for giving us an opportunity to help him in this process.
