The protection of the intellectual property is one of the constituents of scientific and technical activity, which has been taken into consideration from the very beginning of Sumy State University's scientific work. The university (at that time Sumy branch of Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute) received the first protective document in 1971. Since then SumDU has obtained over 1 500 inventors’ certificates and patents for inventions and useful models.

Annually the University obtains about 80 patents.

The development of advanced information technologies raises a matter of the copyright security for SumDU lecturers’ scientific works. SumDU audio-visual materials, computer programmes, e-textbooks, multimedia manuals, and lectures courses for the educational process, scientific digests, and single articles are registered at the Department of Intellectual Property and given copyright certificates. Currently, the University has received 127 copyright certificates.

Nowadays over 162 Sumy State University patents are valid in Ukraine.
