Professor within the Pratt School Of Engineering - Lectures on Intellectual Asset Management for the Masters of Engineering Management Program. *Independent Research & Intern Options Available ERGMGMT 590.01 - All major corporations, mid-sized firms, and small or start-up ventures including University efforts involved in any technology field have basic needs that include considering all forms of intangible assets. The field of intellectual property and the associated need to value that intellectual property has evolved to the point that all Merger and Acquisition (M&A), venture capital, and R&D activities should include a thorough understanding and review of patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, etc. to strategically determine how to proceed with these activities. A complete review of the US and international patent processes including writing and obtaining a patent, licensing and licensing negotiations, technology transfer, as well as a full understanding of valuation and valuation techniques to manage the intellectual property (IAM - Intellectual Asset Management) are the primary focal activities of this course. Students normally work in teams with existing technologies to develop an IP portfolio, which is valued and presented at the end of the semester.
