Abstract

Teaching and research are actively linked together, one informing and energizing the other. This strong interaction between the two encourages faculty members to inspire, motivate, energize, stimulate, and promote their students towards the real goals of student education. Due to the need for education process improvements and budget constraints, integration of teaching and research with community service is necessary for the advancement of society. The efforts invested for the engineering education, the scientific research, and the combination of teaching and research with community service are not only essential for industrial development, but are crucial for our life, nature, and to enhance the technological and intellectual level of our society. It is important for the scientific engineering community to address, discuss, and propose new ideas to incorporate this interaction for the advancement of the local community. Accordingly, this study is intended to explore the benefits and challenges associated with incorporating teaching and research into community service while also discussing the establishment of such a mechanism.
