Case Summary:

An EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition was approved for an assistant professor with a Ph.D. in computer engineering. Prior to initiating a client-attorney agreement, the North American Immigration Law Group assessed the success of our client’s previously provided qualifications. Our team confirmed that we could assist him in obtaining the national interest waiver following a thorough evaluation, having gone through a rigorous process of reviewing his supporting documentation and pertinent proof before determining that it would be sufficient to convince USCIS and grant our client NIW approval.

To start and help him achieve the success he wanted, we highlighted the following in his NIW petition packet:

  • We emphasized that our client is a computer engineering expert, and his proposed endeavor focuses on creating a serverless edge computing framework that is both economical and effective. This framework should be able to host numerous in-demand, data-intensive applications close to end users at the network edge.
  • We deduced that his research has great substantial merit and national importance. Among other applications, his research is relevant to advancing key technologies essential for driving the global economy and national security.
  • In addition, we observed that, in his field of computer engineering, our client had published 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 15 peer-reviewed conference articles (8 of them first-authored) in no fewer than 5 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals, altogether accumulating 195 citations.
  • Also, he conducted 6 peer reviews to date, which is another significant sign of his supremacy in the field.
  • Moreover, his study has been funded by the NSF. The fact that this organization is committed to supporting scientific and technological research indicates how important our client’s work is to expanding the potential and usability of edge computing applications as well as promoting innovation in computing technologies.

We are pleased to state that our team was successful in persuading USCIS that the work of our client is vital to the advancement of this technology and its applications in energy, national security, and data processing. That being stated, our client was able to obtain his NIW approval within 6 days of us filing his petition with the USCIS, which is an amazing feat. We are grateful that he selected North America Immigration Law Group for his I-140 application, and we congratulate him on his successful completion of this process and noteworthy accomplishment.
