Success Stories: Thanks to Our Team, NIW Approval Made Possible Without an RFE for an Acoustic Transducer Engineer in Mechanical Engineering from Pakistan


Client’s Testimonial:

“The attorneys working on my case were awesome and did a splendid job. Thanks a lot for all the help in the process!”

On March 15th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for an Acoustic Transducer Engineer in the Field of Mechanical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Acoustic Transducer Engineer

Country of Origin: Pakistan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: March 15th, 2023

Processing Time: 3 months, 9 days

Case Summary:

“The use of kerf structures as proposed by [the client] alter the wind response of outdoor buildings so they better cope with high-speed wind. In doing so, his work reduces the likelihood of structural damage and harm to Americans experiencing these hazardous weather events. Buildings that are more structurally prepared for wind-induced disasters also prevent massive economic spending in terms of repairs. As such, [the client’s] work is highly prevalent in the United States.”

This statement is part of a longer letter of recommendation written in favor of an acoustic transducer engineer in mechanical engineering from Pakistan. As an expert in the field his proposed endeavor after winning an EB2-NIW (National Interest Waiver) case was to continue his research on analyzing acoustic and dynamic responses of kerf structures to control sound and wind effects in indoor and outdoor architectures.

Thus, our team made use of the information such as the following to get his petition together and win him approval:

  • We showed that his research endeavor is of great importance because of the need for sound control to protect peoples’ hearing within a space, as well as the need for wind mitigation to protect the outsides of buildings.
  • His research is important in designing structures that are both aesthetically pleasing and enables this sound control within a space. They are also helpful for deployment on the outside of buildings to mitigate the dynamic effects of wind, which damage the exterior or cause forced convection heat transfer that leads to increased energy consumption.
  • This proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States, particularly regarding national health and welfare. His research on kerf structures for controlling and reducing noise in indoor spaces is important since prolonged exposure to loud noise causes stress and leads to hearing loss. In the U.S., hearing loss is the third most common chronic physical condition, with 24% of the hearing difficulties experienced by U.S. workers caused by occupational noise exposure.
  • Due to its clear national importance, his research has been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation, an independent federal agency that is the major source of funding in many fields including mathematics, computer science, and the social sciences.
  • He has also completed at least 5 reviews to date and his research has resulted in 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 first-authored) and 4 peer-reviewed conference papers (2 first-authored).
  • These publications have been cited a total of 28 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of mechanical engineering.
  • Along with this, we knew that his research has been recognized by 4 letters of recommendation and that he has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor for four years.

All of these factors worked in his favor winning him the approval of the adjudication committee within 3 months and 9 days. We are glad that we could help him in this process and we wish him the best of luck in the future.
