SBCE Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Cell

Intellectual property plays an important role in providing a competitive edge to any Institution.IPR Cell was constituted in  Sree Buddha College Of Engineering, Pattoor on

May 15, 2018. The tangible assets like inventions, designs, software, brand name and other creative & innovative ideas are more valuable than physical assets.

Sree Buddha College of Engineering started an Intellectual property rights cell (SBCE IPR) under the leadership of Dr. K. KRISHNAKUMAR, Principal. SBCE IPR Cell is committed to encourage, protect, manage and commercialize Intellectual Property such as Patent, Copyright, Trademark, etc. generated through the College. The cell creates a conducive environment in the academics for the development of Intellectual Property. Faculty and students of SBCE are actively participating in the IPR filing process in different disciplines of Engineering, Science & Technology.


It is necessary to protect the Intellectual property in order to enable organizations to earn recognition or financial benefits. Governments of various countries protect the innovative ideas of the inventors through Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). Recently, IPR has become a central issue in the developed and developing countries. The rationale for this IPR lies in the need to create awareness about the importance of IPRs as a marketable financial asset and economic tool among the researchers, faculty and students of the College.

Intellectual property Rights: means the rights derived from the IP e.g. Patents, registered designs, copyright etc.

Indian Government has revised the National IPR Policy in May 2016 and its vision, mission and objectives are given as follows.

Types of IP

  1. e) IC Layout Designs : means a layout of transistors and other circuitry elements and includes lead wires connecting such elements and expressed in any manner in a semiconductor integrated circuit.
    f) New Plant Variety: a plant variety that is novel, distinct and shows a uniform and stable characteristics.
