Intellectual Property Rights Cell
The Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Cell was established in CKCET to facilitate the protection of intellectual property, promote innovation, and support the development of products based on research and creative endeavours.
We are proud to announce that C K College of Engineering and Technology has successfully published a total of 5 patents. These patents represent the culmination of dedicated research and development efforts undertaken by our talented academic community. The diversity and depth of these innovations underscore our institution’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of knowledge and contributing meaningfully to the advancement of technology.
Furthermore, our dedication to promoting intellectual property awareness and protection is exemplified by the successful organization of 9 comprehensive programs. These programs were designed to educate our students and faculty on the importance of IPR, providing valuable insights into the processes of patenting, trade marking, and copyrighting. By conducting these programs, we aim to create a culture of innovation and responsibility, wherein the fruits of creative endeavours are safeguarded and respected.
The success of our IPR initiatives is a testament to the collaborative efforts of our research community, the diligence of our students, and the unwavering support from the administration. We believe that the protection of intellectual property is crucial not only for the growth of our institution but also for the larger cause of advancing knowledge and contributing to societal progress.
