History and Vision
The vision of IUCEE is to improve the quality and global relevance of engineering education in India. We believe that this requires an ecosystem which will foster the employability, entrepreneurship and leadership skills of engineering graduates.
An important part of this ecosystem is Our Annual Conference (called the International Conference for Transformations in Engineering Education, ICTIEE), held every year in order to facilitate the sharing and collaboration between the institutions, faculty and students associated with IUCEE. Another important objective of the Annual Conference is to provide a forum for hearing from and building partnerships with international experts as well as industry experts.
The first Annual Conference, ICTIEE 2014 was held at BVB College of Engineering and Technology (BVBCET), Hubli, Karnataka, and was, in fact, at the suggestion of the leadership of that institution. BVBCET (now KLE Technological University) faculty had been participating in IUCEE programs since its inception in 2008, in preparation for their transition to an autonomous institution. They expressed the need for a Conference to share the process by which they were able to build an ecosystem for transforming their institution. Since then ICTIEE 2015 was held at BMS College of Engineering (Bangalore, KN) and ICTIEE 2016 was held at College of Engineering Pune (Pune, MH). ICTIEE 2017 was held one after another at Vardhaman College of Engineering (Hyderabad, TS), RK University (Rajkot, GJ) and Manipal University Jaipur (Jaipur, RJ), ICTIEE 2018 was held one following the other at Bennett University (Gr. Noida, UP) and Thiagarajar College of Engineering (Madurai, TN). ICTIEE 2019 was also held one after the other at Malla Reddy Engineering College (Hyderabad, TS) and Chitkara University (Chandigarh). ICTIEE 2020 was held at Anurag Group of Institutions (Hyderabad). ICTIEE 2021 was held virtually on January 8 to 10, 2021. ICTIEE 2022 was held virtually on January 7 to 9, 2022. ICTIEE 2023 was held at Vidyavardhaka College of Engineering (Mysuru, KN) on January 5 to 8, 2023.
ICTIEE 2024 will held at KLE Technological University (Hubballi, KN) during January 2 to 4, 2024.
