The 2018 Leadership Summit was able to bring to the Summit,  more than 16 international experts in engineering education who were part of the AP ICTIEE 2018 Conference in partnership with Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Council (APSSDC). A team connected with the Confederation of Indian Industries showcased the process by which several industry groups in India were able to improve their quality through collaborations. Members of the IUCEE Global Industry Advisory Forum (GIAF) decided to follow the example of the industry group. The Collaborations Groups were formed for sharing best practices among IUCEE institutions. More than 40 institutions participated.

The 2019 Leadership Summit highlighted emerging new collaborations with Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), Engineers Without Borders (EWB) as well as entrepreneurs for a Clean and Green Campus and Education Augmentation (IIT Bombay and Drona Edutronics).
