Information about Mechanical Engineering Student Association (MESA):

 MESA is Mechanical Engineering Student Association, SVIT, Chincholi, Nashik. The MESA was formed to bring about the technical development of students by organizing seminars, workshops and other activities and also to improve non-technical abilities of students by engendering good communication skills, managerial abilities, presentation skills and team work.


  • To promote the interaction between academia and industry by organizing expert lectures and facilitate in industrial training.
  • Promoting the interests of students in various technical areas pertaining to mechanical engineering.
  • To encourage students of the mechanical Engineering department to develop their personal skills, like event management & time management by organizing inter & inter Collegiate Events.
  • To bring about the technical development of students by organizing seminars, workshops and other activities.

SAE Associatio:

SAE’ (Society of Automotive Engineer) is international organization for advancing mobility on land, sea, air and the space. SAEINDIA holds a variety of competitions every year for engineering students across the country.The chapter was established in year 2017 by students of Mechanical Engineering. The main aim of the chapter is to enhance the knowledge of students through various activities related to Automotive. For academic year 2017-18 SAE Collegiate chapter involved 58 student members. The Counseling body is formed of the students. The Vice president of collegiate club is the head of the Department. One of the staff members is staff Advisor of SAE club, while dynamic and energetic students are selected for post of Treasurer and Event Manager by interviewing them. SAE will organize different activities throughout the academic year like:

  • SAE Opening.
  • Motor GP (car Racing).
  • Robo Racing.
  • Industrial Visit.
  • Technical Paper Presentation.
  • SUPRA (Virtual Competition).
  • SAE Closing.
