In the course of their work, engineers may have to face many issues related to Intellectual Property (IP) rights. They may even have generated their own IP that requires protection.

If you work for a big multinational, I suggest if you have a brilliant idea, work on it in your own time, outside office hours, away from the office. ‘Course, if you have a money making idea, your owner… I mean employer will say that you were inspired by the work the slave driver… I mean company provided, hence they own your gluteus maximus, and any money derived thereof. The speaker can prove me wrong, though.
The above will be presented by Mr. Ng Khuen Wee (Advocate and Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya and a MBA Graduate from the University of Malaya where he majored in International Business and Corporate Finance) and Ir. Dr. Abdul Aziz Abdul Raman (Associate Professor at the Chemical Engineering Department, University of Malaya. He started his career with Dowell Schlumberger and moved around as a process engineer with Golden Hope and later with Nestle until 1993 where he joined University of Malaya as a lecturer).
