Abstract: The study focused on the status of income generating projects of Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology conducted in the different campuses. It specifically described the profile of the personnel of income generating projects, determined the present income generating projects per campus, and assessed the level of satisfaction of their clientele. This study used the descriptive survey method utilizing both quantitative and qualitative description of data. The researcher conducted survey using both interviews, questionnaires and observations in order to find out the existing income generating projects in each campus, determine the status of the different projects, and clientele satisfaction with the products/services, price, promotion and facilities. Statistical methods used were frequency, percentage and weighted mean. Five campuses participated in the study namely; General Tinio Campus, Sumacab Campus, San Isidro Campus, Atate Campus, and Gabaldon Campus. Respondents who gave their time and effort on this study were six IGP Officials, 15 Deans/Directors, 1 IGP Coordinator, 242 Faculty/Staff and 357 students. Majority of the IGP officials were member of IGP Committee, Deans and Directors were from Sumacab Campus, San Isidro Campus, Atate and Gabaldon Campus, and non teaching personnel with four years of experience. In terms of production there is a campus involve in broiler, swine, goat beef and cattle. There is no aqua culture. There are also rice production, bake products and processed meat. As for non consumable products uniform and books is the majority income generating. In terms of services, rental, leasehold and gate pass which operates more than five years, with no IGP coordinator/head and five were involve in IGP projects. Researcher strongly suggest that the University should consider to establish marketing center in each campus which serve as one stop shop where all the IGP products will delivered, displayed and distributed. Information about IGP Projects should be disseminated to all University personnel to fully understand what is IGP and its importance and role to the University. Benefits, such as incentives should be given to personnel involved in the IGP operations to continuously motivate them to become more productive. Agricultural projects should also support the forth function which is production and not limited only to research and instructions. Financial report on IGP projects should be discussed in each Campus in their year end meeting to be transparent and motivate other faculty and staff to support the IGP projects. And lastly, the study must be replicated to validate the findings and come up with more accurate descriptions and assessment of different existing IGP Projects in each campus which will serve as inputs to the planning and decision making of the IGP head and Officials.
