This study was carried out to find and explore current forms of international interactions in collaboration networks between the global information technology industry and engineering education. Forms of interactions between industry and higher education were first studied through a literature review of previous studies on country-specific interaction forms, because almost all published studies on interaction forms in collaboration between industry and higher education concerned country-specific forms of interactions. The findings of the studies were used as secondary data in this study for comparison. There were only few previous studies available on international interactions between industry and higher education and none of them examined different forms of interactions. Thus there was a clear gap in research which this study for its part aimed to fill.
