This office was established to accelerate the building of a "technopreneur environment" within the campus through engineering research and commercialization. The office extends assistance in the transformation of innovative and promising product concepts to their commercialized form. Support provided includes technical assistance in the development of professional business plans, product patenting and linkage to potential investors. In addition, it also implements activities that promote the development of such products through research support and contests. It is also tasked to implement the existing Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy of the University.
