Success Stories: NAILG Helped an Egyptian Postdoctoral Appointee in Civil Engineering Get NIW Approval Without RFE


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for such good news to start the day with.”

On November 18th, 2021, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Appointee in the Field of Civil Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Civil Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Appointee

Country of Origin: Egypt

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Mexico

Approval Notice Date: November 18th, 2021

Processing Time: 10 months, 7 days

Case Summary:

As an expert in the field of civil engineering, our client from Egypt was a postdoctoral appointee and his proposed endeavor was to continue his research on bridging the gap between fine scale modeling and structural health monitoring of infrastructure in order to improve the reliability of infrastructural performance predictions and cover new materials used in modern construction and infrastructural maintenance.

Clearly, his research is of great importance because it addresses some of the central concerns in the field of civil engineering. In particular, this research is directly relevant to addressing the current problems facing concrete infrastructures worldwide. This was why other experts were eager to provide letters endorsing his endeavors in the field. One of these said:

“[Client’s] focus on concrete performance and durability is an important component of a civil engineer’s work, and this work is of great importance to the United States.

His work with this critical construction material that undergirds countless American infrastructural systems positions [the client] as a researcher whose work is highly beneficial to the United States. His record of achievement is well established, and he is poised to continue making meaningful contributions to the field of civil engineering in the United States.”

Our team used these 4 letters along with the following information in his petition packet confirming his victory in the NIW (National Interest Waiver) case he wanted us to file on his behalf:

  • His research has resulted in 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (all of them first-authored) and 5 conference articles (4 of them first-authored).
  • His work has also been cited 44 times by researchers in his and allied fields of study.
  • He has been invited as an expert to conduct peer reviews 5 times already.
  • He also has financial aid from his source of employment as a postdoctoral appointee.

We are thus grateful to him for all of his goodwill and trust in our firm and NAILG wishes him the very best in all future endeavors.
