General EA2BC life cycle model describes integrated process of academia to business cooperation in the area of E & C Engineering, including assessment and self-assessment, search, selecting and fitting of partners considering updating of interests, the evolution of E & C technologies, developing of partners and means of mutual collaboration.

Three customized models may be presented as follow:

Type A model: a university department is functioning as a learning unit for its students jointly with E & C. The departmental core role is aligning curriculum in line with actual needs of industrial employers; industrial counterpart assist in clarifying requirements for observed technologies, performs practical and optional classes for departmental students.

Type B model: a university department is functioning as a "Type A+" centre for development of technologies and innovations. The departmental strategy is facilitating the research links "Professor <-> PhD student <-> Master student" while chosen industrial counterpart requests for R&D activities.

Type C model: a university department is functioning as a "Type A+" entrepreneurship center for spin-offs and start-ups. Departments provide the infrastructure for student potential companies, stimulates establishing start-ups and spin-offs; involved industry acts as a coach and business advisor for newly established entities.
