Engineering School Profile (ESP) on Engineering Village

De-Mystify Your School’s Engineering Research Profile

on Wed, 09/12/2018 – 19:46

The institutional research decisions of tomorrow are often made with today’s research in mind. Thorough analysis of today’s engineering research trends, reach, and impact help deans and chairs make data-driven decisions about the pathway to tomorrow, while influencing grant allocations, research focus, and overall strategic vision.

Yet, the pathway from today to tomorrow is often uncertain. Creating reports that summarize institutional research activity can be time consuming. Plus, it’s still a challenge to reconcile data from multiple sources. Without a comprehensive analytical view, institutions are challenged to capture their valuable contributions to the engineering research community today or make data-driven decisions about the future. Similarly, engineering leaders may struggle in making judgements about funding and both short-term and strategic long-term focus.

The Engineering School Profile (ESP) on Engineering Village demystifies your school’s engineering research landscape. Track research output and view institutional engineering research trends in one visual, interactive, and customizable interface. With the power of Compendex’s 190 engineering disciplines and global focus, engineering leaders are ensured a thorough and comprehensive analysis of their institution’s research landscape.
