The paper evaluates the impact of teaching and industry experience of university teachers with industry academia interactions. The industry academia interface is underdeveloped in India. Except few premier institutions, majority of the academia institutions work isolated with industry. Poor employability of graduates is a cause of concern. Effective industry academia interface provide opportunity to enhance the employability of graduates and improve research and academic outcomes. The survey method was used for collection of primary data. Faculties from private and public universities were respondents for the study. The data was analyzed by ANOVA. The results show that industry experience of faculties had no significant impact on industry academia interface. Senior faculties were more optimistic about willingness of industry and regulatory agencies for industry academia interface. Young faculties were willing to participate in industry academia interface. Majority of faculties were dissatisfied with involvement of student in industry projects. Industry academia interface may be made more effective by involvement of young faculties in execution and involvement of students for projects. Senior faculties should guide the young faculties for proper execution of projects and setting up of the collaborations.
