Patents are also to the credit of the faculty of the department.

The department has formed SLIET Mechanical Engineering Society (SMES) to accelerate academic activities of students and faculty. The SMES is regularly organizing technical activities like seminars, student competitions and Industrial visits at regular intervals for the benefit of the students. Indian Welding Society (IWS), has its local centre in the department. There is an exchange program of students between MIT-SETU of USA and SLIET Longowal for academic and cultural exchange. The department is regularly organizing conferences/symposium and AICTE sponsored STTP courses.
