Intellectual Property for Chemical Engineers

Course ID: 
ELS107
Course Type: 
eLearning (online) Course
Course Length: 
10 Hours

Engineering is a dynamic and exciting field of work that naturally involves work in chemistry, physics, mathematics, and other basic sciences. But engineering is more than just knowledge of mathematical relationships and chemical formulae. Engineering inherently involves problem solving, and problem solving is the seed of innovation that can, and often does, blossom into discovery and invention. This online course will provide the engineer with a basic understanding of the laws that surround the protection of ideas, discoveries, and inventions, including the intellectual property (IP) law principles that surround patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets.

On September 16, 2011, the America Invents Act (AIA) was enacted, representing the first major overhaul of the U.S. Patent system in nearly 60 years. The AIA substantively changes many aspects of patent law, such as:

  • a switch to a first-to-file system
  • providing new types of prior art to invalidate patents
  • providing many new ways to challenge patents, both pre and post-grant; and
  • providing new defenses to patent infringement, among others

In keeping, "Intellectual Property for Chemical Engineers" has also been recently overhauled to provide the learner with the most up-to-date information regarding the new U.S. Patent laws. Students enrolling in this course will be exposed to numerous basic patent laws and corresponding strategy, both pre-AIA and post-AIA, as well as to other intellectual property laws and principles, such as trade secrets, copyrights and trademarks.
