Intellectual property is the product of the human intellect including creativity concepts, inventions, industrial models, trademarks, songs, literature, symbols, names, brands,….etc.
Protection of IPR allows the innovator, brand owner, patent holder and copyright holder to benefit from his/her work, labor and investment, which does not mean monopoly of the intellect. The IPR Cell takes care of the creative ideas, innovations, and discoveries of its faculty, students and technical staff, and the subsequent transfer of those ideas to use through extension services, training and commercial application.

1. To promote constant awareness about IPR.
2. To engage and conduct IP workshops/ seminars.
3. To provide guidance and consultancy to the faculty/students during their research to pursue their projects in the direction of Patent/IPR.
4. To encourage faculty members and students to engage in applied innovative research and development of products/process that can be transferred to the benefit of society at large.
5. To enable the transfer of these innovations to application for public benefit and commercial use, through transparent operations.
