The students industrial work experience scheme (SIWES) is a skills training programme designed to expose and prepare students of Universities, Polytechnics/Colleges of Technology/Colleges of Agriculture and Colleges of Education for the industrial work situation they are likely to meet after graduation. The scheme also affords students the opportunity of familiarizing and exposing themselves to the needed experience in handling equipment and machinery that are usually not available in their institutions. It is a cooperative industrial internship program that involves institutions of higher learning, industries, the Federal Government of Nigeria, Industrial Training Fund (ITF), and Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC).

BRIEF HISTORY OF SIWES

The student Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) was established in 1973/1974 session by the Industrial Training Fund (ITF). Prior to the establishment of this scheme, there was a growing concern among our industrialists that graduates of our institutions of higher learning lacked adequate practices background studies preparatory to employment in the industries. It is against this background that the aim of initiating and designing the scheme was hinged. SIWES Report Microbiology-Laboratory

Consequently, the scheme affords students the opportunity of familiarizing and exposing themselves, to the needed experience in handling equipment and machinery that are usually not available in the institutions. The ITF solely funded the scheme during its formative years. It withdraws from the scheme in 1978 due to the financial problem. The federal government handed the scheme in 1979 to both the National University Commission (NUC) and the National Board of Technical Education (NBTE). Later, in November 1984, the federal government changed the management and implementation of the SIWES Report Microbiology-Laboratory

scheme to ITF and it was effectively taken over by the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) in July 1985 with the funding being solely borne by the federal government.
