India is going through a paradox of flourishing manufacturing industry on one hand, and low employability rate of mechanical engineering graduate son the other. This maybe due to the lack of hands-on knowledge of mechanical engineering students. However, where most others see only problems, the Chennai-based Alpha College of Engineering(ACE)sees solutions. Responding to the need of the hour with its innovative experiential pedagogy,ACE caters to the growing requirements of the industry by proffering in-depth knowledge and training in the field of Mechanical Engineering, covering thermal, manufacturing, and design aspects. Bridging the gap between industry and education, it also exposes students to the latest research, development, and techniques adopted by the industry through diverse Engineering, Technology and Management courses.
