General Field: Computer Engineering

Approval Notice Date: September 28th, 2021

Processing Time: 10 months, 23 days

Case Summary:

A client from Germany, holding a Ph.D. in Information Science approached us to file his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. He is currently working as a Research Engineer in the field of computer engineering and his proposed endeavor is to develop novel autonomous driving algorithms.

  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it contributes to improving the safety and robustness of autonomous vehicles.

Also, there is a certain requirement to be fulfilled by an individual under the “National Interest Waiver” (NIW) provision for EB-2 including:

  • The applicant must present evidence that the U.S. would benefit on balance to waive the job offer criteria for an EB-2.
  • The foreign national must be in a position to advance the proposed endeavor.
  • A proposed endeavor, holding substantial merit and national importance.

Therefore, to fulfill the above-mentioned essentials, we encompassed the following attributes in his petition packet:

  • He has completed at least 42 peer reviews to date in authoritative journals in his field.
  • His research has resulted in 4 peer-reviewed conference papers (3 first-authored) and 3 first-authored peer-reviewed journal articles, cited a total of 108 times according to Google Scholar.
  • He has served as a session chair for 1 international conference.

Other experts in the field provide additional insight into the merit of this endeavor, one out of five asserted:

“[Client] has employed high-level computational approaches to improve the variability and precision of decision-making in intelligent driving systems…As a distinguished member of the scientific community, [client] is well-equipped to continue in this manner to advance intelligent transportation in the United States.”

We are thus very proud that our client finally received his NIW approval, despite waiting for a longer period. He even achieved I-485 approval with us. It has been an amazing journey with him. We wish him the very best in life.
