The Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) was set up in the academic year 2011-12 with an admission intake of 60 and this intake was increased to 120 in the academic year 2013. The Mechanical Engineering Department at AGPCE has been one of the mainstay departments, active in teaching and research since its inception in 2011. It has well qualified and experienced faculty with innovative teaching methods.

The department has the state of the art Workshop, Mechanical Measurements and Metrology Laboratories for providing Training. In addition to this a well-equipped laboratories in the area of Heat Transfer, Dynamics of Machines, Mechanics of Materials, Computer Aided Design, Energy Conversion-II and Engineering Metallurgy to name a few, giving practical experience to the students. A separate computing facility has been established to carry out project work and design jobs using CREO 3-D modelling software taken up by the department. We run Technical Training in CREO & AUTOCAD for developing soft skills of the students.

The department has developed a Project Development Cell (PDC) for increasing Industry Institute Partnership with aims to establish and explore proper links with various industries all over the country for development of Sponsored Projects. It also aims to work in close coordination with the Industries and organizations for placement and training of the students, to support R&D, to exchange personnel between the Industries and the Institute by organizing guest lecturers from Industrial experts, evaluation of project work and development of curriculum as per industry needs and other academic work in the Institute.

The department has collaboration with Indo German Tool Room, Reliance Power , Dysmech Consultancy Services, Mars EdPal Instruments Pvt. Ltd, Polylab Engineering Equipments Pvt.Ltd , Indorama Synthetics, Mecgale Pneumatics Pvt. Ltd., Barrister Sheshrao Wankhede Shetkari Sahakari Sutgirni Ltd., Purti Power and Sugar Ltd., Tru Form Techno Products Pvt. Ltd., Star Circlips Pvt. Ltd. to provide industrial training, sponsored research project and placement assistance to the student. Campus recruitment training is conducted under training and placement cell of the group.
Vision:

The department of Mechanical Engineering strives towards the summit of technical and co-curricular domains. Here we have not only set our vision in producing the ambitious engineers but also good citizens.

Mission:

The standards that are to be applied to the overall development are related to the mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, which is to
