The Power of Knowledge Management in Higher Education



The Role of Technology Faculties in Engineering Education
Sonmez, Murat (2013-10-29)
Today, engineering applications require engineers to develop and update their knowledge in professional life in a continuous manner since technology is rapidly changing and becoming more complex. Unfortunately, due to lack of knowledge and training, trial and error method is widely used in most of the applications by newly graduated technical staff. However, this method could be a cause of huge economic losses, and undermines occupational safety and health at work. At present, in most countries, Bachelor of...
The Role of Art in Science
Jong, Taeke M. de (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2010)
The study of architectural, urban and related technical design struggles with its context sensitivity hampering a contextless and categorybound scientific generalization. Many concepts describing design issuesare different from the categories and variables of empirical science.Incomparable categories such as ‘strong’, ‘useful’ and ‘beautiful’ haveto be combined in design. These combinations cannot be expressed in a‘statement-based’ scientific discourse. Design annoyingly jumps throughits sentences and state...
The Role of faculty owned businesses in entrepreneurial universities
Yüksel, Peyman; Oran, Adil; Department of Business Administration (2015)
This thesis explains how universities have evolved towards entrepreneurial universities, the role of these universities in country’s development and how these universities have achieved knowledge commercialization, the major objective of third generation universities. Among many alternatives, faculty-owned businesses, called academic spin-offs, are the most direct but controversial way, in terms of their academic duties, used to achieve this objective. In addition to academic spin-offs, technology transfer ...
The structure of scientific community and its relevance to science ethics
Özdemir, Ece Özge; Sol, Ayhan; Department of Philosophy (2006)
The goal of this thesis is to argue that science is not value free on the grounds of a community based account of ethics. It is the peculiar feature of this model that ethics is a limitation on individual's freedom of action, and moral norms of a community reflect the structure of the community. I endeavour to resolve the problem, on an assumption that science is an activity of scientific community, that science ethics can be derived from the internal structure of scientific community. Therefore, this thesi...
The role of intermediaries in corruption
Bayar, G (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-03-01)
The aim of the article is to examine a briber initiated corrupt transaction and the role of intermediaries in such a transaction, using a game theoretical model. Clients applying the intermediaries do so to be able to get rid of high red tape applied by the officers. They prefer using intermediary instead of offering a bribe to the officers directly since they do not know which officers are corrupt (accepts a bribe offer) and how much bribe should be given to the corrupt officers.
