With the advent of the state-of-the-art evolution of the automisation of the conventional engineering processes to optimize the efficiency and precision, the 21st century industry has started to implement such automation tools in their major processes. In view of this fact, to create the trained graduate engineers capable to work in this emerging field, Annasaheb Dange College of Engineering and Technology has introduced a new full time under graduate degree engineering course in Mechanical and Automation Engineering from the academic year 2013-14. This is 'first of its kind' degree course affiliated and available in the Shivaji University, Kolhapur.
Prof. Dr. S.A.Patil of our institute is elected as the Chairman of Board of Studies of this course for Shivaji University, Kolhapur. The Syllabi has been developed in such a way that the students will get exposure to the latest techniques of the automation industry in the form of Industrial Automation and Robotics, P.L.C. & SCADA Programming, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing, Nano Technology, Advanced Control Systems and Micro-Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) to list a few of the variety of subjects offered. Along with this, well equipped laboratories such as Applied Hydraulics and Pneumatics, Programming and Simulation Lab, Instrumentation and Control lab, Microprocessors and Applications, Robotics and Noise and Vibration etc. are facilitated to provide hands-on experience to the students
