Intellectual Property Law for Engineers Certificate

This online class deals with patent applications, research and prosecution; the law of infringement, and computer applications of software (protected by copyright) and hardware (by patents). We cover what other concepts are patented, as well as machines, processes, mixtures, manufacturing, compositions of materials and methods of doing business and research. Not only do we deal with utility patents, but with design and plant patents. Although we focus mostly on patent law, we also deal with copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secrets and business methods.
