In Memoriam - Ir. Dr. Ooi Teik Aun

In Memoriam - Ir. Dr. Ooi Teik Aun

12 June 2024

With profound sorrow, ITA here share news of the passing this morning of our esteemed colleague, Dr. Ooi Teik Aun, who passed away unexpectadly and peacefully in Malaysia.
Dr. Ooi was a leader in the realm of tunneling, not just within Malaysia but across the globe.

His legacy extends beyond his remarkable contributions to engineering and geotechnics; he was a paragon of integrity and ethical fortitude.
Among his professional accolades:
•    Honorary Fellowship at IEM
•    Chartered Engineer
•    Respected arbitrator in technical disputes
•    Holder of Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Engineering from Auckland
•    PhD from Sheffield, UK

Dr. Ooi epitomized integrity in all his endeavours, advocating steadfastly against corruption and championing ethical conduct. He exemplified the spirit of volunteerism, dedicating himself to trade associations and non-governmental organizations, underlining the indispensable fusion of qualifications with ethics.
Dr. Ooi's founding of the Tunnelling & Underground Space Technical Division (TUSTD) of  the Institution of Engineers of Malaysia in 1999, culminating in Malaysia's endorsement as the 50th Member Nation by ITA through IEM in May 2000, stands as a testament to his visionary leadership.

Farewell, Dr. Ooi. Your absence leaves a void not only in the realm of engineering but in the hearts of all decent souls who knew you.
Dr. Ooi Teik Aun 14 December 1941 - 12 June 2024
