Jabatan Kejuruteraan Mekanikal (JKM) telah ditubuhkan di Politeknik Muadzam Shah pada penghujung November 2010. Penubuhannya adalah selaras dengan pergerakan operasi Kampus PMS di kampus tetap. Terdapat empat program diploma yang ditawarkan di politeknik ini:
• Diploma Kejuruteraan Mekanikal (Automasi)
• Diploma Kejuruteraan Mekanikal (Reka Bentuk Produk)
• Diploma Kejuruteraan Mekanikal (Reka Bentuk Pembuatan Automotif)
• Diploma Kejuruteraan Mekanikal (Pembuatan)

Keseluruhan program akan mengambil masa enam semester untuk disiapkan, secara relatifnya lima semester akademik di politeknik dan satu semester latihan industri di industri berkaitan pada semester akhir. Jabatan ini terdiri daripada seorang Ketua Jabatan, 4 Ketua Program dan 53 pensyarah akademik. Pensyarah diperuntukkan untuk setiap program berdasarkan latar belakang, kepakaran dan pengalaman mereka.
