Capt. Mahbubul Alam

Mahbubul has over 30 years' maritime industry experience, including more than 15 years' sea experience in worldwide trade, which gave him a wide range of experience in navigation, operation of vessels and management of multicultural and multinational crews.

After his seagoing service, he joined East Coast College (previously Lowestoft College) as a lecturer Nautical Studies in 2006 and has been involved in lecturing on various HNC, HND & MCA courses.  Here he developed a firm understanding of the maritime education system. He has successfully delivered a variety of training and development programmes in line with agreed nautical science curriculums.

Mahbubul has a sound knowledge of maritime legislation, guidance and codes of practice and believes properly trained seafarers are the assets of the modern shipping industry. His teaching career has helped him understand how maritime industry regulations are developed from UK and EU legislations and from agreements, resolutions and conventions made by IMO and ILO. While championing best practice and promoting learning, he has developed his maritime skills and utilised experiences both from an academic and commercial field.

As a lecturer in Nautical Studies, he is primarily responsible for teaching Officer of the watch- HNC subjects, Chief mate- HND subjects, Master Oral, NAEST (Operation) and NAEST (Management) courses.
