Transforming Engineering Education in India - The IUCEE Way

Who Started IUCEE?

The Indo US Collaboration for Engineering Education (IUCEE) was founded with the help of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), Pan IIT (organization of IIT alumni), International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES) and Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE) with headquarters at University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML). It was conceptualized by over 150 leaders of engineering education and businesses from US and India in 2007. Generous financial contributions and intellectual advice from Desh and Jaishree Deshpande, Sudha and Narayana Murthy, Arjun and Kiran Malhotra and in-kind support from Infosys Technologies have helped initiate the program which is now on the way to becoming a success and financially sustainable.

What is the IUCEE Vision?

The vision of IUCEE is to improve the quality and global relevance of engineering education and research in India with focus on faculty development, student development, curriculum development, as well as improved teaching technologies & research.

What is the IUCEE Approach?

Initial emphasis is on building capacity to improve the teaching quality of faculty in the large number of engineering colleges in India by introducing state-of-the-art concepts of problem based and outcomes based approaches to teaching and learning. This is being implemented with the leadership of experienced Indian faculty in collaboration with US faculty experts. Simultaneously, the culture of research and innovation among these colleges is being enhanced via the resulting networks and collaborations between the US and Indian institutions, thereby increasing the capacity of the Indian institutions to engage in world-class research. These networks are leading to opportunities for US colleges also to benefit via international student recruitment, research collaborations and study abroad opportunities for US students. This approach will enable innovative solutions for addressing crucial problems faced by this world.
