CHAPTER ONE1.0 INTRODUCTION The Student Industrial Experience Scheme (SIWES) is a program specially organized by the Industrial Training Fund (ITF). It was imitated in 1973 with the objective of equipping students in Nigerian Tertiary Institution with adequate practical knowledge required for the completion of their different courses of study. The scheme is a tripartite program involving the students, the universities and industries. The Scheme is funded by the Federal Government of Nigeria and is jointly coordinated by the Industrial Training Fund and the National Universities Commission (UCC). It is a skill training program designed to exposed and prepare students of tertiary institutions for the industrial situation they are likely to meet after graduation.1.1 OBJECTIVES OF SIWESThe objectives of SIWES are enumerated as follows:⦁ Provide an avenue for students in institutions of higher learning to acquire industrial skills and experience in their course of study.⦁ Prepare students for the industrial work situation they are to meet after graduation.⦁ Expose students to work methods and techniques in handling equipment and machinery that may not be available in their institutions.⦁ Make the transition from school to the world of work easier, and enhance students contact for later job placement.⦁ Provide students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge in real work situation thereby birdging the gap between theory and practice; and ⦁ Enlist and strengthen employers, involvement in the entire educational process and prepare students for employment in Industry and Commerce.1.2 Scope of SIWESThe scope of SIWES basically entails the majors areas the scheme intends to focus on by allowing students engage in internship. As earlier mentioned at the start of this paragraph the SIWES scheme aims majorly in ensuring that the gap between classroom learning and theoretical experience is bridged. Usually as seen in ordinary class learning the student in most cases will tend to see relevance until a practical side of these lessons is given.In summary, the scope of the SIWES is to ensure that the students not only see practical solutions to every lessons but also to understand the workings of the labour market which will in that future ensure that they easily get absorbed into it.As an Engineering student, I have been able to obtain the relevant industrial training experience during my internship program which took place at Monica Integrated Global Company Umuahia, Abia State. Having been exposed to practical and activities in industry in duration of six (6) months.
