Innovation and Invention

This offering is designed for engineering students with an interest in design, invention, and the meaningful expression of creative ideas. It is intended to help students explore and understand their critical role in the invention/creative process and ultimately yield insight on the technologist’s role in wealth creation. After an introduction to innovation, the course explores the subject of invention and intellectual property. All issues relating to patents and patentability of inventions, copyrights and the protection of the expressions of ideas, trademarks and source identifiers will be reviewed and analyzed in the context of multiple engineering domains.
