Dr. Sreejith Mohan is serving as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, NIT Trichy.  He did his B-Tech in Mechanical Engineering from Kannur University, Kerala and M-Tech in Machine Design from College of Engineering, Trivandrum, Kerala. Soon after his Masters, he joined the SCMS School of Engineering and Technology as an Assistant Professor, before joining his Ph. D. in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, NIT Tiruchirappalli. He completed his doctoral research in “Investigations on Fume Reduction from SMAW process using Nano-Alumina and Nano-Titania Coated Electrodes”, from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, NIT Tiruchirappalli. He has 12 years of research and teaching experience in total.

Dr. Sreejith Mohan joined as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, NIT Trichy during the year 2020 and since then has been actively involved in several roles and responsibilities at the Institute. He is a member of the Institute level committee responsible for implementing Online and Continuing Education Programs, since 2021. He was also engaged in the developmental activities of a HEFA-funded laboratory for the study of particulate emissions from industrial processes and combustion. He is the initiating faculty for the establishment of “Orthopaedic Biomechanics and Motion Analysis Laboratory” and is also one of the coordinating members of “Industrial Hygiene and Ergonomics Laboratory”, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, NIT Trichy.

He is a member of the panel, CHD 07: P3 of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and is engaged in the drafting and reviewing of Indian Standards pertaining to various chemical compounds.

Dr. Sreejith Mohan has sheer expertise across various domains such as occupational health and hygiene, particulate emissions and control, environmental pollution, ergonomics, vibrations, nano coatings, nanomaterials, biomaterials, corrosion, mathematical modeling, and finite element analysis. He is a prominent researcher with more than 20 papers published in reputed and peer-reviewed international journals. Besides, he has authored two book chapters with reputed international publishers. He has guided more than 15 PG and UG dissertations. Three of his patents got published so far. He was also the recipient of two funded research projects from the Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment and APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University, Kerala with a net worth of Rs. 3.2 lakhs. He has also carried out one consultancy work titled “Conducting Safety Studies at ISRO propulsion Complex” worth Rs. 20 lakhs.
