Project Descriptions

Most industry sponsors require that students sign a Student Participation Agreement, which assign patent rights to the sponsoring companies. If students do develop concepts that are patented by the sponsor, the students names will appear as inventors on the patent, but the right to benefit financially from these patents will belong to the sponsor. Signing this form is voluntary, and any students who does not wish to sign this form will be assigned to a UCSD sponsored project that does not require this form.
