IPR Cell

The Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Cell is focused to recognize the importance of intellectual property by its teachers and students. The Cell encourages the creativity and innovations of its people which lead to generation of Intellectual Property (IP). The cell is committed to support and guide the students and staff in protecting their innovative and creative ideas.

The cell understands the growing significance of IPR in business and research. The IP reasoning encourages innovation without fear of a competitor, who may steal the idea or take the credit for it. Therefore, the Cell conducts awareness seminars and workshops to advice and guides the students and faculty on the importance of IP and encourages the faculty members to carryout patent searches in-house. IPR workshops are organized periodically to familiarize the rights of copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade secrets and the enforcement of the rights by a court via a lawsuit.
