I am a 2nd year mechanical engineering student at university. I have designed several new products which as far as I know are unique inventions. I am concerned as to who actually would own the rights if I were to pursue any of these designs. I have spoken to a few lecturers and they have given me conflicting answers. One told me that the university would help me and the ideas are my own. The other said to not do anything until I graduate as the university will own all rights. I have copyrighted one of my designs which I made in the students workshop but is this secure enough? I would like to start making my ideas and testing them while I am still at university however I don't want to throw away any rights I have. Does anyone have any advice?
