The Mechanical Engineering Department came in to existence in the year 1981, which is one of the oldest among the other diploma courses in Sakthi Polytechnic College. Initially, the government aided mechanical engineering diploma course was established with a sanctioned intake of 50 students and in the later years (2010-2011) the self-supporting programme was introduced with an intake of 60 students. These courses are AICTE approved and affiliated to Directorate of Technical Education (DOTE), Chennai. Our department has well-qualified, experienced and dedicated faculties who always strive to do their best to instil knowledge, skills, moral values ​​and attitudes in their students. The department has achieved great success in engineering with extensive development of its students.

Mechanical engineering is an important branch that requires a lot of practical and theoretical research. To achieve this, we have a highly qualified faculty team and well-maintained laboratories and workshops. Since its establishment, the Mechanical Engineering Department has maintained a steady growth in all areas of its activity and has played a key role in creating a vibrant and positive academic environment within the college.

The Department also works consistently to train students and faculty by conducting various training programs throughout the year and participating in various conferences and workshops both in and out of the state. The faculty has also taken several new initiatives in recent years to restructure and enhance the academic programs.
