dc.descriptionThis paper describes the process of transformation formally implemented at the Universidad Tecnológica de Panamá (UTP), to create a platform for fostering and supporting entrepreneurship and the results of the research of the universities entrepreneurship research. The first part of the article presents the conceptual framework on the role that the University should play today, in the face of entrepreneurship.  We focus this part of the development of the article on the contributions of author Burton Clark, in his model of Entrepreneurial University and as implemented in the UTP, the common elements of entrepreneurial universities, which were identified by Clark as "transformation paths", which we have adapted and presented their development in a public university. The second part of the article seeks to analyze the profile of the university entrepreneur, that is to say, one wants to know the entrepreneurial intention, so it is important to analyze the attitudes and perceptions of the students of public and private universities in Panama. The results of the study show that there is a greater proportion of positive responses to entrepreneurship in students of private universities, that is to say, a higher positive attitude towards entrepreneurship. This is because they come from private schools, where its treated or discussed more, the aspect of entrepreneurship than in public schools. Globally we can see that there is a great positive entrepreneurial attitude in students, since universities today have several courses of entrepreneurship in the various university careers, something that did not happen 15 years ago. Keywords: Entrepreneur, entrepreneurial university, enterprising attitude, students.en-US

  • 2017: 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference - Panama (ESTEC 2017)
    The 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference (ESTEC 2017) organized by the Universidad Tecnologica de Panama (UTP) is the most relevant conference, engineering-based, of our country. The topics of the conference are focused on areas of interest of Panama and the Latin America region, including: agroindustry, astronomy, bioengineering, education on engineering, energy and environment, ICT engineering, infrastructure and construction, logistics and transportation, manufacturing processes and material science, robotic, automation and artificial intelligence. This year, ESTEC partnered with IEEE Panama Section to ensure the quality of the peer-reviewed process; we received more than 180 full papers from 20 countries and 50% of those were accepted to participate in the conference and will be published in the conference’s proceeding. Furthermore, the conference included technical tours to the Cocoli’s Gate and the Miraflores Visitors Center of The Panama Canal and to the Wind Power Park in Penonome, Panama.
