Imran graduated from DIOM in 2015 with a GPA of 3.95. In 2019, he graduated with Second Class Upper Honours for his
Bachelor of Science (Maritime Studies) degree. As an undergraduate, he had the opportunity to go to London for an
exchange programme, during which he visited 15 counties and 22 cities. He also won the Global Internship Award and went
to Marseille in France for an exciting overseas internship. He is currently employed at Maersk as a Stowage Planner.

INTERNSHIP
     EXPERIENCES

      A Rewarding Internship
      Experience at Unilever
      Myanmar
      When Magesh took on his Overseas Industry
      Immersion Programme (OIIP) posting to Yangon,
      Myanmar as a Procurement Excellence intern, he
      not only had to tackle operational issues at work,
      but also inter-regional differences in language and
      working styles.

      The five-month stint with Unilever Myanmar Services’
      supply chain and procurement department exposed
      him to multi-million dollar budget projects and the
      Diploma in Industrial & Operations Management (DIOM) student took it in his stride. “I was able to apply my
      course learning strategically in an overseas setting,” Magesh shares. “RP prepared me well as a problem

      solver so I could contribute professionally. I’m glad I stepped out of my comfort zone!”

      Magesh was also excited about the valuable opportunities the internship provided. He worked with factory
      managers and vendors as well as clients, broadening his understanding of partnership and collaboration.
      “This was truly an eye-opening experience,” he says.

The Temasek Foundation International-Specialists’ Community Action and Leadership Exchange (TFI-SCALE) is an
exchange programme which aims to build leadership capabilities and develop friendship among student leaders in
Technical Vocational Education and Training Institutions (TVET) of Higher Learning in Asia. Through activities focused on
leadership, technology and enterprise, it fosters a greater understanding and appreciation of the challenges in Asia and
inspires TVET student leaders to positive action.

The students also visited a monastery school on the outskirts of Yangon, where they conducted workshops to
promote an interest in engineering to young Burmese students. Two years back, a team of RP students had installed a

Micah Sim has been flying ahead of his cohort academically for two consecutive
years. He strives for excellence in every module and constantly consults his
lecturers to clarify concepts, so as to reach greater heights.

Micah is always willing to help his classmates in their work. It reflects an emotional
maturity gained four years ago when his father lost his job due to ill health. Micah
studied dilligently to bump up his grades and his hard work paid off when he
received financial aid for higher education. He has since maintained a perfect GPA.
