Importance of Research Skills
Engineer research is critical to an organization’s productivity and competitiveness. From software, civil, architecture, petroleum, manufacturing, geotechnics to chemical engineering, it helps fill gaps in knowledge and develop new products while improving organizational efficiency and growth. Recognizing that research boosts their competitive edge, successful companies invest billions of dollars in R&D efforts. Current and prospective students should, therefore be aware of the importance of research in engineering education as well as throughout their careers. Our R&D team outlines the benefits of engineering research in theory and practice.

NUR considers published papers for a University that affiliated as the first or second. Third or more affiliation is not considered.
NUR considers published papers with more than two affiliations for the PhD and Post Doctorate authors who affiliate their abroad universities and their research center.
NUR does not considers any published papers of authors of public universities who they have publication in more than one private university/institute affiliation. If so, all published papers of that author will be EXCLUDED.
NUR does not consider any published paper that affiliated to a public or private university with incorrect spelling, e.g., Koya University is not University of Koya and Salahaddin University is not Salahaddin University-Erbil.
