Industry-institute collaboration is not new concept, as we all know the world is being more competitive to remain sustain there is need for both industry-institute get involve into collaboration to encourage innovation and competitiveness in global economy. Objective of this paper is to identify whether the industry institute collaboration has significant influence on research & innovation, teaching & learning,employability and knowledge transfer among the engineering institute in pune region; identify the most significant method of knowledge transfer between industry and institute. Proposed study conducted for 10 engineering institutes in the city Pune. Being a survey research the study adopted the use of questionnaires to solicit data from respondents. The population of this study constitutes faculties such as principal, director (R&D),industry institute coordinator, head of department and training placement officer, professor, assistant professor etc. from 10 ngineering institutes in pune region.
