On December 5th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Appointee in the field of Mechanical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Appointee

Country of Origin: Pakistan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: December 5th, 2023

Processing Time: 8 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Our esteemed client who is making progress in the field of mechanical engineering approached our law firm to file an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. He holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and a wealth of research expertise. After carefully reviewing all of his qualifications and delving deeper into his degrees and diplomas, we concluded that we could help him succeed with an NIW visa and countersigned the client-attorney agreement.

We supplemented his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition package with essential features to demonstrate his importance as a researcher in his field.

  • Initially, we noted that his work has been cited 44 times by dependent and independent researchers, demonstrating that his publications are widely recognized and relied upon in his chosen field.
  • We also detailed his contributions to peer-reviewed conference articles which resulted in 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and 2 peer-reviewed conference articles (1 of them first-authored).
  • We even discussed how our client’s study has received funding from the NSF and DEVCOM ARL. Projects that promote and operationalize science are supported by this funding. Thus, our client’s research advances science and offers a foundation for improving the design of damage-tolerant microstructures in magnesium alloys and applying this understanding to a variety of industries.

Moreover, our client’s research focuses on developing new methods to characterize novel magnesium alloys that improve energy efficiency in transportation and provide increased protection for military vehicles, which has great substantial merit and national importance as:

  • Among other applications, his research is relevant to the global economy and sustainability by reducing CO2 emissions, as well as the U.S. economy and public safety by improving energy efficiency in transportation.
  • His research advancements, both in sustainable materials and defense industries, form a powerful synergy that supports a more environmentally conscious and economically prosperous future on a global scale.
  • His work not only addresses environmental concerns but also plays a vital role in safeguarding public safety and offering substantial economic advantages in the U.S., making it a cornerstone of a more sustainable and secure future.

We further bolstered his case by including 4 recommendation letters obtained by his peers, corroborating that our client’s research accomplishments in mechanical engineering correspond with the present U.S. goals, proving the need for his continued research work.

Only 8 days after we submitted our client’s petition to the USCIS, he successfully secured his NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval. Therefore, we express our gratitude to him for selecting the North America Immigration Law Group to handle his case and send him our best wishes for future success in his chosen field.
