It all began in 2006, when Department of Mechanical Engineering in WCE Sangli, came up with an idea that students must develop good managerial, leadership and technical skills. It was then that the concept of VERTEX was established. Since then, the ever growing support of all our sponsors as well as authorities of our college and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and the most importantly, the response and feedback of participants has today made VERTEX a well-known technical symposium all over Maharashtra. The seed sowed in 2006, continued flourishing year by year. The mega event VERTEX 2015 was organised by MESA-MESC and Department of Mechanical Engineering on 18th & 19th of October, 2015. It is due to the dynamic support of some companies that we could carry out The State Level Technical symposium, “VERTEX” successfully. The theme of VERTEX 2015 was “CLEAN CITY, GREEN CITY”. The fame of VERTEX has spread all over the Maharashtra & hence the participation of students in the event was in huge number granting the event a huge success!
Alumni meet was conducted on 9th of January. More than 50 alumni were present for this meet. This event was coordinated by MESA-MESC with the lead of Alumni & Industrial Relation Officers Miss Aishwarya Khairmode and Mr. Girish Netam.
