Marine Engineering

Mahmooddin Ismon
Senior Lecturer, Covering Head of Pre-Sea Marine Engineering, B.Eng (Mech)
“I personally try to live an active and fulfilling life outside of ALAM, indulging in activities such as reading, cooking, travelling and biking, so that when I come to work, I’m attuned to real world savvy elements that I have picked up along the way.

There is no room for ignorance, ruthlessness and apathy. There is only one way forward and remember, your focus determines your reality. And this I find is what ALAM is here to do. As a result, I enjoy my job, I’ve learnt a lot and the best thing is, I even met my wife at ALAM.”
Rajoo Balaji
Head of Advanced Marine Engineering
“Our marine dictum here at ALAM is; ‘work with what you have, be happy with what you get’ and I have been living every day with this ringing in my head. I’m in this business because I yearn for experience and believe in lifelong learning. Everyday, I’m still amazed at how therapeutic the drive is into campus from the welcoming blue skies to relaxing waters and tranquil greens. This is home…

An avid tennis fan; music sponge. I look forward to the sunrise every day and a smile on every face of those around me, knowing that I have lived another meaningful day”
R P Sinha
Principal Lecturer
“I try my best to absorb all that is around me. I am passionate about learning and fanatical about digesting everything that comes my way. As training head in setting up ALAM’s training infrastructure and research, my thirst for knowledge knows no bounds.

I entirely reject the belief that people must leave their humanity at the door of their workplace. We are all capable of so much more. I’m proud to help spread knowledge and shape the next generation of maritime cadets. That is a gift in its own right”
Dr. Wilfredo Erenio Yutuc
Senior Lecturer
“It may be a cliché but ALAM really allows me to live my life on the edge everyday. Whether it is being on the frontier of research on new technologies or pushing my physical fitness to its limits in intense sports and activities, ALAM has helped me develop professionally and personally.

As a foreigner, I really appreciated the inclusive culture at ALAM which fast tracked my assimilation. I love weekends, that’s when I get to explore the sights and sounds of Melaka, where every corner is laced with tradition, culture and more surprises to be uncovered.”
Mr. Gan Boon Song
Senior Lecturer
“We all need an outlet in life and for me, that is ALAM. I have always been inspired by great leaders who despite living rich and meaningful lives, are totally committed to give back to society.
Procrastination was never my thing, so when asked by the management to become ALAM’s Quality Education System Instructor, I gladly volunteered to kick start our journey towards better education quality in ALAM.
Teaching in ALAM has allowed me to shape minds, build character and bring out the best in our officers, so that they will be future-ready and fully empowered to take on the challenges of the new millennia."
