Hello, I have a question regarding H1 B filing. I was hired as a Manufacturing Engineer in Jan 2013.
My OPT was extended by 17 month considering my position as a manufacturing Engineer in my company.Now,
my employer will be filing my H1B in April 2014 and recently they changed my title to Mechanical/Industrial
Engineering Technician, and will be filing my H1B with the same title ( Industrial Engineering Technician), Would
this create any problem in my approval of H1B..?

If it was my case, I would not advise the employer to file an H-1B for a "Technician". Engineers are specialty occupations; Technicians are not. However, USCIS looks to the job description, not just the title. So, as long as the job duties entail those of a specialty occupation, then the position would still qualify.
