zakirul-bhuiyanSenior lecturer in ship simulation, Captain Zakirul Bhuiyan, has been elected to a Fellowship of the Royal Institute of Navigation (RIN) at the April 2015 Council meeting.
Zakirul will receive the award at a ceremony on Wednesday 15 July 2015 in the Royal Geographical Society, London, in recognition of his development and delivery of ship bridge simulation courses and his contribution to training for ECDIS and e-navigation.
Zakirul has over 25 years of maritime industry experience including command on big merchant vessels. He has been a member of staff at Warsash Maritime Academy since 2006.
In his present role, he has been involved in all aspects of simulation training including preparing and delivering bespoke courses. He has also been the course manager for various courses at Warsash.
Zakirul's time at sea was spent in world-wide trade, which gave him a wide range of experience of navigation, operation and management of vessels.
His most recent achievements include representing WMA at various professional venues organised by the Nautical Institute, RIN, MCA, MAIB, MNTB, OCIMF, and different shipping companies. He has been invited as a speaker for numerous international conferences, and his articles on ECDIS, e-navigation and simulation training have been published in a number of international journals/publications.
Being a Fellow of the Nautical Institute and Royal Institute of Navigation, he has also established good networks in the wider maritime community.
