Tendencies of engineering students on applying technological innovations
MetadataShow full item record
As Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) infuse more into our daily lives, their effects and significance become more visible for everyone. On the other hand, not all ICTs are welcomed by everyone. Some technologies or tools are more preferable whereas some people totally ignore some ICTs. In that sense, diffusion of any innovation is significant to implement research studies. Therefore, this study aimed to reveal current situation on diffusion of innovation tendencies for Faculty of Engineering (92 students from Computer, Industry and Mechatronic engineering, and departments) who will be the prospective adapters of ICTs into different sectors in their jobs. Tendency on adapting and implementing current ICTs could be listed within the most important competencies of any engineering department. The study instrument which was adapted by researchers starts with 10 demographic questions (gender, department, what social media tools they use, and etc.) one question asks for possible barriers, 20 questions on 5-point-Likert scale focusing on unfolding their tendencies on diffusion of innovations. The concept of time and administration gained prominence made a statistically significant difference among participants in revealing current situation on diffusion of innovation tendencies for students from faculty of engineering.
