Data Validation Process
One week after the forum, engineering baseline survey questionnaires were sent directly to heads of department’s through courier. This was followed by a phone call to the engineering research assistants whose duty was to help follow up with the department to ensure that the questionnaires were filled.
Different universities received different number of questionnaires depending on the number of engineering department the university has. The number of departments per university ranges from 1 to 6. Data validation process which started in November 2015, ended in January
