The students of the department are connected with the faculty members through the official association, Mechanical Engineering Association of SUST (MEAS) . The head of the department is the president of the association. Faculty member Mr. Nuruzzaman Sakib is the treasurer of the association. Several elected students are members of the executive committee. The association plays a vital role in establishing the teacher-student relationship through organizing different workshops, seminars, cultural and sports events, fresher's reception, study tours and other various activities. 'Mechnovation' is the signature event organized by the MEAS. Several competitions, such as robotics contest, Computer Aided Design (CAD) competition, idea contest, cultural program, etc. are the major events of Mechnovation. The first Mechnovation, held in 2017 was limited to SUST only while the second one was organized nationally in 2019. Apart from Mechnovation, MEAS arranges 'Ignition' on 10th January of every year to symbolize the academic journey of the department.
