Most least developed countries like the Philippines, in fact, are aware of the importance of technology but found it irrelevant in the process of technology transfer. Small medium enterprises in third world countries are heavily dependent on imported technology and they remain always dependent on imported skills. This is happening even in schools because these have not given proper consideration to technology transfer process. This research therefore, is focused on the review of the various technology transfer projects of the Technological Institute of the Philippines Manila Community Development Program for school years 2005-2007.
This study used the descriptive method of research, which is concerned with describing the demographic profiles of household respondents, and other factors such as human, financial and social capitals that would influence the selection of various technology transfer projects of the TIP Manila Community Development Program for school years 2005-2007. The proponents of this study composed of households of the adopted barangay of TIP Manila, which is Barangay 385 were purposively chosen. Several factors that would influence the selection of the various technology projects were evaluated through questionnaires and personal interviews.
