RESUME of Nicholas Adrian Suppiah

 Last modified on 1st January 1999.


A chance to advance and serve in an information technology environment with opportunity for increased responsibility consistent with my ability to contribute.


 I am interested for a position of Systems Analyst / Analyst Programmer / Other IT related profession.

In the last two year of studies in Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology (APIIT) I have been exposed intensively in the UNIX environment with scripting, COBOL, PASCAL, C, SQL and in developing HTML scripts. I have developed programs based on VisualBasic 5, VPexpert, html and COBOL for my main projects. These can be verified by APIIT. During the course I was an active member of the Student Activity Group (SAG), as Secretary (1st year) and Chairperson (2nd year).

Prior to commencing my studies in APIIT, I was attached to Neptune Orient Lines (S) Pte. Ltd., an ISO 9002 company, as the 3rd Officer of foreign going vessels. This entailed navigation, cargo operations supervision and logistics of safety and fire fighting equipment.

I have just completed my Higher Diploma in Computer Systems. Please be informed that I am pursuing my 3rd year for a degree in Computing Science on a part-time basis (twice a week during the evenings in Damansara Heights). My contact information is at the end of this page.
