The vision of Indo-Universal Collaboration for Engineering Education (IUCEE) is to improve the quality and global relevance of engineering education in India. Its mission is to build an ecosystem for transforming engineering education in India with the assistance of engineering education experts and industry from around the world. IUCEE operates through two formal organizations: IUCEE Foundation, a Section 8 Company in India and IUCEE INC, a 501c3 Company in the US. IUCEE is guided by a team of Indian and international experts from academia and industry. They are passionate about the mission of IUCEE and devote time and energy by offering courses and workshops, facilitating collaborations, organizing and speaking at events, mentoring faculty, students and leadership of colleges. A fundamental strength of IUCEE is its network of engineering educators from around the world who are passionate about the quality of engineering education. It also has ties with global organizations such as—International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES), Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC), American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), International Society for Engineering Pedagogy (IGIP), Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS).
KLE Technological University (KLE Tech) has its roots in one of the premier engineering institutions of Karnataka, B. V. Bhoomaraddi College of Engineering and Technology (BVB), a prestigious engineering college in Hubli. The founding organization KLE Society, Belgaum, established BVB college in 1947 with an aspiration of creating an institution that would lay the foundation of modern engineering education in the northern region of Karnataka. Over the years, it evolved to reach and hold a unique position of pride in the technical education system of India. As we stepped into the 21st century, the college undertook a comprehensive reform process to adapt to the challenging global engineering education scenario. In pursuit of academic excellence, the college attained academic autonomy from University Grant Commission (UGC) in the year 2007. As an autonomous college, BVB established its distinctive character in the academic space through its curriculum and outstanding student experience. In 2014 the college was recognized as a state private University by the Government of Karnataka. The rich heritage of BVB College as one of the best engineering colleges in Hubli combined with brand equity of KLE Society are the starting points for KLE Technological University to emerge as a University with a national distinction. Over the time it gained tremendous credibility with the industries and employers and emerged as a brand to reckon with. The Alumni of the Institute have done exceedingly well in all spheres of life at both national and international levels and brought name and fame for themselves as well as to their Alma Mater.
The Research in Engineering Education Network (REEN) is a community of scholars interested in conducting high-quality work in and advancing the field of Engineering Education Research. REEN differs from other networks and communities of engineering educators in its primary focus on research in Engineering Education around the world. The mission of REEN is to provide an independent, international and inclusive forum to advance scholarly discourse on research in Engineering Education. REEN’s vision is to establish and maintain an independent, international, vibrant and inclusive community that supports, discusses and disseminates scholarly research on Engineering Education. The community is intended to nurture new and veteran researchers through collaboration and sound methodological approaches to influence policy at all levels and teaching practices around the globe.
