Dr. Adrian Bon Santiago, an established inventor and innovator, imparted his invaluable knowledge on intellectual property rights and patent search and drafting to the participants from different colleges of the university, namely the colleges of Science, Teacher Education, Business and Accountancy, and Engineering and Technology.
Through the guidance of Dr. Santiago, TDTCO director Engr.
