General Field: Materials Engineering

Approval Notice Date: December 2nd, 2021

Processing Time: 7 months, 4 days

Case Summary:

We employed our team of experts to build a successful case for an Indian client with a Ph.D. in polymer engineering who approached us to help him file the I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition.

We incorporated both his professional as well as academic career information in his petition packet to lead his case toward victory:

  • His work has been majorly significant, and his achievements are of the utmost importance due to their direct applicability in global efforts to address the prevalence of foodborne illnesses and the demand for energy storage technology.
  • His strong background in polymer and fiber engineering has allowed his research to be particularly original, resulting in his success in fundamentally transforming smart material design and synthesis research.
  • He is particularly well-known for his contributions to developing an anticorrosion and antimicrobial coating.

However, there are certain requirements to be fulfilled by an individual including but not limited to:

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

Furthermore, highlighting his academic performance, the following information was showcased:

  • His work has resulted in 18 peer-reviewed scientific articles.
  • His publications have been cited a total of 605 times according to Google Scholar in at least 50 countries
  • He has completed at least 30 peer reviews for at least 4 journals.

Fellow experts in the field provide additional insight into the merit of this endeavor as one out of four stated:

“In terms of its benefits, his research is of particular value to the manufacturing industry because it enables the production of materials at a low cost. As such, it holds positive implications for the United States economy, especially considering that in 2018 the manufacturing industry has an output of $2.3 trillion and accounted for over 8 percent of employment throughout the nation.”

His impressive background, strong record of past achievements, recognition of expertise by journals seeking his services to review manuscripts, and unique knowledge relevant to his current and future work indicate not only that he qualifies as an alien of extraordinary ability but also that his entry will substantially benefit prospectively the United States.

We are thus very proud that our client not only received his NIW approval with the help of our experts but even got his EB1A case filed with our excellence. We wish him all the best in all his upcoming endeavors and thank him for his continued support during the whole process.
