In this era of a technological facelift, where devices are becoming obsolete in 10 years or so. Our engineering education has not seen up-gradation for an extended period. The need of quality skilled based engineers is not being fulfilled. It is seen that collaboration of academic institution with industries can rectify this situation up to a large extent. Such partnerships can address global issues, accelerate research work, reaching to those who need them at affordable prices. However, why is it so that such partnerships are not seen everywhere and is not readily accepted? What are the hindrances in between such collaborations? In the given paper, we will try to address the issue and understand the advantages and hurdles between the academic-industrial collaboration.
