Faculty recognized for these achievements represent Louisiana Tech's College of Engineering and Science, College of Applied and Natural Sciences, College of Liberal Arts, and the Institute for Micromanufacturing.

"Due to the efforts of these inventors, Louisiana Tech is gaining a national reputation as a highly innovative and productive research university," said Dr. Rich Kordal, director of Louisiana Tech's Office of Intellectual Property and Commercialization. "We are producing new discoveries at a rate three to five times the national average."

"For me, it is a pleasure working with such a talented group of individuals. I continue to be impressed by how dedicated they are to their research and the quality of their inventions."

According to the Association of University Technology Managers' most recent U.S. Licensing Activity Survey, Louisiana Tech ranks second in the nation among U.S. institutions for the number of patents issued per research dollar expended. Louisiana Tech also ranks seventh in the nation among U.S. institutions in R&D productivity per research dollar expended.
