General Field: Microelectronics Engineering

Case Summary:

A Chinese client holding a Ph.D. in microelectronics technology approached us to file his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. He is currently working as a senior design engineer in the field of microelectronics engineering with his proposed endeavor to design, develop, and optimize GaN-based devices and high-voltage semiconductor power devices.

  • His research related to using numerical device simulations, design software, and other tools to design, develop, and optimize GaN-based devices and high-voltage semiconductor power devices for improved real-life power conversion systems has great substantial merit and national importance.

Also, under the “National Interest Waiver” (NIW) provision for EB-2, the following requirements should be noted:

  • 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-stated essentials, we assimilated the following attributes in our client’s petition packet:

1. He has completed at least 2 peer reviews to date in authoritative journals in his field.
2. His research has resulted in 15 peer-reviewed journal articles (10 of them first-authored) and 1 book chapter, cited a total of 38 times according to Google Scholar.
3. The National Basic Research Program of China, the High Technology Research and Development Program of China, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Beijing Natural Science Foundation, and the Industry, Academia and Research combining and Public Science and Technology Special Program of Shenzhen have supported his study.

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

“…[Client’s] work enables the field of microelectronics engineering to advance beyond its previous capabilities. Because this field is so integral to American interests, including space exploration and military readiness, the research that [client] has conducted is also meaningful to global technology development.”

As the documentary evidence and corroborating testimony from experts in the field establish, our client is a member of the profession holding an advanced degree. We are thus very pleased that he finally received his NIW approval, despite waiting for a longer period. We wish him the very best in life.
