Electrical Engineers

Today I attended a conference on Intellectual Property at the Georgetown Law Center. One of the panelists was Commissioner Robert Stoll who is Commissioner of Patents at the Patent Office. During the discussion he told the assembled patent smart guys the following:

This year, as in other years, USPTO will hire 2% of the electrical engineers that graduate from college.

He also added that we'd also like electrical engineers to be electrical engineers and not just patent examiners.

That's a lot of electrical engineers.
