Sr. Lecturer

Faisal Ikram bin Abd Samad is presently a Senior Lecturer at UniKL MIMET. He had been lecturing in UniKL MIMET since 2006 in the areas of Naval Architecture and Computer Aided Ship Design (CASD) subjects. His research interests include ship hydrodynamics, ship hullform modelling, ship vibrations as well as computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

Faisal Ikram Abd Samad is currently a Senior Lecturer at Universiti Kuala Lumpur, Malaysian Institute of Marine Engineering Technology (UniKL MIMET). He is a registered Engineer by the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia and is a registered Chartered Marine Engineer by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology, UK (CMarEng); a registered Chartered Engineer by the Engineering Council, UK (CEng). He has graduated with a B.Eng. (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering from Kolej Universiti Teknologi Tun Husseion Onn (KUiTTHO) in 2003. After graduated, he joined Embah Engineering Sdn Bhd a company specialized in Oil, Gas and Petro Chemical Contractor as a Project Engineer. He then joined PSC Naval Dockyard Sdn Bhd (now known as Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn Bhd) at Lumut Perak as a Technical Executive and involved with the construction of new patrol vessels of MEKO design for the Royal Malaysian Navy in Production Division. During his service at PSC, he has also involved with the construction of 8 RTG Cranes for Penang Port Sdn Bhd as a Project Engineer. In 2006, he then joined UniKL MIMET as an Instructor and continued his lecture career in UniKL MIMET until present.
