General Field: Electrical Engineering

Case Summary:

An assistant professor from China engaged our practiced team of North America Immigration Law Group to file an I-140 petition under the EB-2 category (National Interest Waiver) on her behalf. With a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering and great experience progressing in the same field, our client was indeed eligible for this visa category. After we filed the case, our client received the approval 6 days after we submitted the case. A special thanks to the premium processing upgrade.

We Are Listing the Following Required EB-2 Petition Documents:

  • As our duty to help our client showcase her academic and professional achievements, we documented our client’s exceptional record of citation count (289 citations at the time of filing) as well as publications of 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored) and 8 peer-reviewed conference articles (2 of them first-authored).
  • Furthermore, our client examined the work of other researchers in the same field 53 times, thereby indicating her acknowledged expertise in the field.
  • We evaluated her research work thoroughly and represented to the USCIS that our client aspires to continue her research on EV adoption in rural region.
  • We concluded that her research endeavor is of great importance because it enables the diffusion of electric vehicles (EV) in rural areas as well as efficient resource allocation for vehicular network.
  • The petition bundle also included four recommendation letters that consistently supported the acceptance of her case, which helped her win the EB-2 visa. Based on this multifactor evaluation, it is clear that our client’s education, experience, expertise, documented record of success, influence in her field, and plans have all combined to position her well to advance the proposed endeavor of accelerating the development of electric vehicle networks through the implementation of an EV-grid integration testbed.

Fortunate Outcome:

Since our client is a member of the professions with an advanced degree, as evidenced by documentation proof and confirming testimony from experts in the area. Her findings demonstrate that waiving the standards for a job offer and labor certification benefits the United States. She has demonstrated her eligibility for the NIW visa category, and we successfully persuaded USCIS to award our deserving client NIW approval. We would like to thank her for selecting us, and we wish her continued success in the field of electrical engineering.
