Dr. T. Thimmaiah Institute of Technology has been a vanguard in frosting innovation and incubating professional design were students and faculty can explore their potential. The respective faculties are constantly involved in the promotion and distribution of information, just as students are finding ways to launch business ideas to influence society and solve problems in the real world.
Intellectual property is crucial in giving every institution a competitive advantage. Physical assets are less important than tangible assets such as technologies, designs, software, brand name, and other imaginative and innovative ideas. The IPR Cell in Dr. TTIT is dedicated in encouraging, protecting, managing, and commercializing intellectual property created by the College, such as patents, copyright, and trademarks. The cell fosters an environment conducive to the creation of intellectual property in academia. Dr. TTIT's faculty and students are actively involved in the IPR filing process in a variety of engineering and technology disciplines.
Intellectual property must be secured in order for entities to obtain recognition or financial benefits. Intellectual Property Rights are used by governments around the world to shield inventors' (Creators') creative ideas (IPR). IPR has recently become a hot topic in both developed and developing countries. The reason for this IPR stems from the need to raise awareness among the College's researchers, faculty, and students about the value of IPRs as a marketable financial asset and economic tool.
IPR Cell at the College helped file five Patents.
In May 2016, the Indian government revised its National IPR Strategy, and we framed the following goals based on its vision, mission, and objectives.
- To inform and raise awareness about intellectual property rights among our faculty, research scholars, and students.
- To provide training in the areas of patent filing processes for future endeavors.
- To organize various training program related to IPR like workshops, seminars and Awareness programs for students and faculty members.
- To motivate our faculty members, scholars and students to do the Patent Filing/Copyright/Design of their innovative work.
- Make an imaginative culture which encourages the creation and advancement of intellectual property.
- Ensure that faculty, staff, and students have a clear understanding of their rights and obligations, and that the Institute's members' interests are protected.
- Protection of intellectual property, technology transfer, copyright, and commercialization issues need technological, legal, and other support.
- Dr. TTIT cheers entire professors, staff, and scholars to file their intellectual property in order to be preserved and used to benefit the government, the institute, and the creators involved.
- Establish a proactive atmosphere for generating new information through research and innovation that is consistent with the Institute's educational mission.
- As a result of this policy a framework would be placed to restore command to the procedure for information creation and exploitation for profit.
To improve the research and patenting community, the IPR Cell has held seminars and workshops for faculty and students.
