The Certificate in Patent Prosecution is a 12-credit curriculum that prepares students to help inventors get patents. Certificate students learn the basics of patent law and the important skills that a patent agent will need to have: how to write a patent application, how to negotiate with the U.S. Patent Office on behalf of an inventor, how to determine whether an invention is patentable, and the ethical obligations of a patent agent.View All News
