The PaTech Program, a component of SIPJF, connects potential employers with students who already have a patent license or an interest in technical advising. PaTech employers seek science, engineering or technology graduate students and recent alumni who are interested in new innovations and ideas, have exceptional creative and analytical skills and/or are familiar with intellectual property.
PaTech candidates do not need to have a J.D. or be enrolled in law school. Common candidates are students or recent alumni of engineering, science and technology graduate degree programs.
