More than 50 utility models and 3 industrial design applications were filed by the end of CTU Tuburan’s patent search and drafting workshop on March 15th through 19th.
The activity resonated the university’s mandate to gain more areas that could positively impact its QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) ranking in the next evaluation period.
Such a direction primarily emanated from the Research and Development Office which tapped the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) for the 5-day training.
Faculty members of CTU Tuburan’s five colleges— Arts and Sciences, Agriculture, Education, Engineering, and Technology— engaged in discussions on IP (Intellectual Property), patent, utility models, industrial designs, copyrights, draft claims, and applications by resource speakers Eric Paden and Emmanuel Mendoza of IPOPHL, ITSO officer Anthony Ilano and Shipboard Training officer Derek Mar Montallana of CTU Carmen.
