Engineers know all about patents, right? Interestingly, the answer is a resounding “no”!
Engineering is a technical profession. It is a discipline that applies science to problems and creates solutions to help humankind. Engineers can fall into various labels such as R&D professionals, researchers, scientists, product developers, and designers, but few engineers are inventors, and even fewer are knowledgeable of the patent process.
Engineering specialties include mechanical, manufacturing, industrial, biotech, chemical, electrical, civil, automotive, software, aeronautical, marine, mining, petroleum, and many, many more.
Engineers are trained to apply the laws of physics, engineering and scientific formulae, statistics and probability analysis, research method
