DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "International Survey of Engineering Faculty & Administration: View of University Efforts to Promote Technology Transfer, Patents & Sponsored" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The study presents extensive data from 167 faculty and administration, primarily drawn from many of the world's the world's leading engineering programs, especially from the United States but also from Canada, Australia, the UK and New Zealand.
The 64-page report presents findings on how faculty and administration evaluate the efforts of their respective universities to manage patents, organize sponsored research opportunities, incentivize faculty to develop and submit technology to university authorities, publicize university research and pursue research opportunities for faculty.
The study provides specific data on each of these areas, as well as measuring feelings about university policies on the role of Chinese and Russian nationals in technology research.
The report also gives detailed data on opinions on whether financial support to departments promoting and managing university technology transfer, sponsored research and other related areas should be increased, decreased or left unchanged.
Data in the report is broken out by many personal and institutional criteria including gender, compensation level, academic title, field of engineering, engineering program ranking, US/Non-USA and many other variables.
Just a few of the report's many findings are that:
- Deans and department heads were much happier than full professors with the performance of the technology transfer and sponsored research offices.
- Men were more enthusiastic than women as 22.58% of men nut only 13.95% of women thought the university performance in promoting technology excellent.
- In the area of university prowess in patent management, full professors were tough graders: More than 32% of professors awarded a C or a D and only 11.76% gave out the coveted A.
- For the most part satisfaction with the university incentives structure for incentivizing faculty to create patents and other intellectual property for the university tended to increase with the income level of the survey participant.
- Survey respondents in biomedical engineering were more likely than their peers in other areas of engineering to believe that technology access controls on students and faculty from Russia and China were too lax and merited tightening.
