Graduate profile: Alistair Barrie
I work as a patent attorney, which involves interacting with inventors, foreign attorneys representing inventors around the world and with Patent Offices to help companies and inventors protect their inventions.
I do this by working with clients, writing to Patent Offices and drafting patent applications. My MSci at Bristol helped me get my job by boosting my problem solving skills and enabling me to communicate effectively in technical matters.
The courses I took on my degree and the research I saw in the School of Physics gave me the technical knowledge I need every day to be able to understand how the inventions that I see work.
