Inventions Policy

In the course of completing their degree requirements, undergraduate or graduate students may discover or help discover technology which might be patentable and/or have the possibility for commercial development. Any student who suspects this might be the case should, without delay, contact his or her research supervisor, if appropriate, and the Office of Research. Although the rights to such inventions are owned by the University, in accordance with the University's Invention Policy, a student who is an inventor or co-inventor would share in any revenues earned by the invention.
