The Indo US Collaboration for Engineering Education (IUCEE), with headquarters at University of Massachusetts Lowell, was conceptualized by over 150 leaders of engineering education and businesses from US and India in 2007.

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

The IUCEE process is making progressive strides from the past five years. Each year, international experts from the US travel to India to discuss global best practices in teaching and research in different fields of engineering with Indian faculty from public & private colleges in one-week workshops at Faculty Leadership Institutes (FLI).

In 2008, Shri Vishnu Engineering College For Women was selected as an IUCEE Provisional Regional Centre. This is one of two regional centres in Andhra Pradesh. These Regional Centres are established throughout India in order to scale up and sustain the impact.

Later, the IUCEE College Consortium was created in 2010 with 22 college members. Gradually it has increased to 77 members by 2013. SVECW has been the member of IUCEE College Consortium since 2010. Through the membership SVECW receives special assistance in establishing collaborations with US experts and MOUs with US colleges as well as opportunities for publicity and branding at various global forums.

IUCEE Virtual Academy

The IUCEE Virtual Academy uses on-line technology, for US experts to conduct live Webinars and MiniCourses to faculty and students all over India.
