Summary of the case:
A Micro Devices Program Manager engaged our diligent services to file an I-140 petition under the EB-2 category (Renunciation of national interest) in his name. Since our client had a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and extensive expertise in the same field, he has qualified for this particular type of NIW Visa. Thanks to NIWPremium processing service upgrade from, our client received approval within 7 days of filing.
We have included all the necessary information in its NIW petition file so that USCIS can proceed with the arbitration procedure:
- We documented our client’s impressive number of citations (56 citations) as well as publications (4 peer-reviewed journal articles, 7 conference papers, and 3 US patent applications). Additionally, his work was also funded by the NIH and NSF. This support is proof that it is transforming imaging-based technologies and advancing the efficiency of solar cells, which is particularly important for uses such as satellite systems and lunar/Martian rovers. These meet pressing needs in the imaging and renewable energy sectors.
- We evaluated his research that he aspires to continue here in the United States on the research and development of new microdevices to improve and enable technologies such as laser processing, autonomous driving, augmented reality/virtual reality, microscopy and endoscopy. We deduced that his research is of great importance because it directly benefits rapidly growing technologies such as 3D printing, autonomous driving and augmented reality/virtual reality, all of which rely on efficient optical engines for light modulation.
- Due to his knowledge and expertise in microdevices, laser confocal microscopy, and laser material processing, our client has been regularly invited to perform peer reviews for authoritative journals in the field, and has completed at least 12 reviews to date, meaning he is considered highly knowledgeable in the field and an expert on topics related to the proposed project.
- Given its research and qualification experience, leadership qualities and subject matter knowledge, our client is also exceptionally well placed to undertake this work. Thus, we have also included two letters of recommendation which helped him tirelessly in obtaining his NIW approved request, moving him towards the EB-2 earn.
We successfully convinced USCIS that our client’s research in the field of electrical engineering aligns with current U.S. goals and firmly establishes the need for further research. We appreciate our client’s decision to work with North American Immigration Law Group on his NIW petition. We also wish him well as he pursues his goal of working in the field of electrical engineering.
