          The “Bachelor Degree Program of Intellectual Property Rights” seeks to train personnel in Intellectual Property Rights in Taiwan, providing for knowledge management from different industries for students to engage, training students in becoming elites in the future knowledge economy age, and assist in corporate development in the future. At the same time, it cultivates an environment for various sectors of society to understand intellectual property, and helps students gain abilities to analyze Intellectual Property Rights, technology management, and law, in order to conform to the academic literacy and preparation for global technological competition and innovation. Furthermore, due to the changes in industry and society based on the 21st Century knowledge economy and development of technology innovation, technology education should include issues such as technology innovation ideals, technology administration and regulations, and technology management. Therefore, the degree program focuses on developing interdisciplinary study and practical abilities in these areas. The program will actively assist the government and industry to develop intellectual property management, providing patent protection of the innovation R&D in intellectual property, business management and value-added creation, in hopes of maintaining Taiwan’s leadership position in the Asia-Pacific region, further becoming the center for intellectual property education and research application in Asia, and join the group of advanced nations that use intellectual capital as the active economic strategies as soon as possible.


Based on this purpose, the features and planning in the Bachelor degree program emphasize the five developmental focuses, which are the systems, techniques, and patent analysis portfolio in Intellectual Property Rights regulation systems, Intellectual Property Rights infringement appraisal and litigation, intellectual property rights value addition and group management strategy, and Intellectual Property Rights and data mining. Three major field directions are planned which are legal regulations, technology innovation, technology management, further conducting the integration of basic courses and professional courses. Legal regulations emphasize the basics of Intellectual Property Rights Law, including Patent Law, Trademark Law, Trade Secrets Law, Copyright Law, etc., to establish knowledge relating to intellectual property regulations. Technology innovation focuses the intimate relationship between Intellectual Property Rights and technology, the high-tech intellectual property rights battles among corporations and biotechnology to integrate student knowledge in technology law and their science or management backgrounds. Technology management emphasizes Intellectual Property Rights management, including Valuation for Intellectual Assets, Management System of Intellectual Property Rights, Patent Analysis and Portfolios; the courses are used to train talent in theory and practice. In terms of course integration mechanisms, Patent Law, Trade Secrets Law, Trademark Law, Copyright Law, and International Intellectual Property Treaties are required courses (a total of 13 credits), as the basic core of student courses; based on these three interdisciplinary course areas, diverse courses are planned as electives, as follows: Licencing Agreement of Intellectual Property Rights, Design Protection and Intellectual Property Rights, Fair Trade Act, Patent Prosecution Practice, Intellectual Property right Forum, Patent Application and Protection, Civil Law, Administrative Law, Patent Examining Procedure Standards, Biotechnology and Law, Intellectual Property Litigations, Introduction to Law and Reasoning, Management System of Intellectual Property Right, Valuation for Intellectual Assets, The Examining of Patent Infringement, Graphics, Materials Technology, Fundamental Computer-Aided Design, Introduction to Computer-Aided Design, English of Patent (a total of 59 credits), so that student courses can meet the systematic and sequential learning objectives and abilities training. The detailed academic degree program learning maps are shown in Figure 4.


These interdisciplinary courses are not only guided by forward-looking approaches in global technology and knowledge economy competition, but since the instructional method based on the curricular content of the three fields integrated outstanding teachers from different fields such as technique, technology, law, and management, it is very diverse. In terms of practice, patent appraisal standards, patent application practice, and intellectual property evaluation are used to plan for concrete contributions to the training of high-tech Intellectual Property Rights personnel in Taiwan.
