Patent Process Course: Invention Disclosure, Review, and Grant

The Patent Process Course is a 55-minute course that introduces the research and development personnel and those employees who need to understand the patenting process for the procurement of an enforceable patent. The patenting process ensures its technical developments are appropriately protected and that IP-related risks are sufficiently managed (and it has the freedom to operate its business). Students will learn about the critical review processes, including invention disclosure submission, review & approval process, and patent procurement.


After completing the Patenting Process course, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the patent process and timeline
  • Contrast alternative strategies to patenting
  • Describe the critical elements of a patent and invention disclosure
  • Complete an invention disclosure
  • Describe the patent review committee process
  • Discuss the criteria for pursuing patent protection
