Patent Training for Engineers
Beem Patent Law Firm conducts patent training workshops for engineers and scientists in the U.S. Army, in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), in corporations and in Universities.
Each course is designed for the audience based on the goals of the organization, the time allotted and the experience of the attendees. The course generally provides basic instruction and practical exercises for engineers and scientists to write good invention disclosures for patent applications that will be filed and prosecuted in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (or the Patent Office).
Beem Patent Law Firm prepared and first presented a two-day course on “Writing Invention Disclosures For Good Patent Applications” to the U.S. Army at the U.S. Army Aberdeen Proving Ground, in Maryland (Sept. 7, 2005). The Firm has since taught the course to many U.S. Army scientists and engineers.
“Many engineers and scientists underestimate the patentability of their inventions,” observes Beem, “so we teach them how to write invention disclosures that can quickly be turned into good patent applications.” The collaborative exercises demonstrate the Beem philosophy that good patents require teamwork between the inventor and the patent attorney.
Richard Beem has presented shorter courses to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) at regional meetings, to corporations across the country, and to university engineering students and professors.
