IP for engineers…

IPO IP tutorIntellectual property is now featured in the Engineering Council’s Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP) “Professional Engineering Competence Guidance”.  The Intellectual Property Office have developed a useful toolkit for those charged with teaching intellectual property and integrating it into teaching programmes.

The interactive CPD accredited e-learning tool helps students and lecturers understand intellectual property rights i.e. trade marks, patents, copyright and designs and uses case studies to show why intellectual property is important.  It provides four tailored learning pathways, each adapted to suit the needs of different areas of study, one of which is for STEM subjects, and was developed with input from EPC members and their students.  You may access the tool here.
