If I can convince the USPTO that my coursework qualifies me to sit for the patent exam, I will be taking that this summer. I finished with a computer science degree. I started at an engineering school for the first 3 semesters of undergraduate, but the chemistry sequence for all engineers (even chemical engineers) did not have a lab for the second semester. I have two lab credits, one was a general safety/basic chemistry lab I took over the summer prior to starting and the other went along with the lecture in the first semester. So, I have 10 hours in chemistry, USPTO wants 8, but my hours in chemistry are not in consecutive semesters with a lab for each. I also have the physics courses , but they were not taken in consecutive semesters.
So, I guess I will see. It is somewhat puzzling why the USPTO requires computer science degrees to be ABET accredited for the patent exam when some of the top computer science programs in the country are not accredited by ABET.
