Ethics Education Program for Graduate Students

The Ethics education program,  funded by the National Science Foundation, offers busy graduate students a unique opportunity to build an understanding of intellectual property that will complement their studies, research, and instructional goals.

Students will participate in a non-credit (no-cost) and semester-long program that is guided by Michigan Tech copyright and patent experts.  Learn with peers in online environments, during weekly evening meetings, and during four (4) special dinner meetings with campus experts to develop a broad understanding of copyright and patent
fundamentals in the context of academic research and publishing.  Engage in guided team activities to analyze IP case scenarios relevant to graduate studies and to share their informed analysis with others.

Students will gain a competitive edge for their graduate studies and with future employers. They will explore the beneficial balance of IP law that supports the continuous advancement of knowledge by protecting, rewarding, and encouraging originality in STEM research.  On successful program completion, they will receive a certificate of
training in intellectual property.
