This training affords the students to be expose to both practical and theoretical aspect of what they have learnt in the class room.

Students’ industrial work experience scheme (SIWES) and the industrial training (IT) both work hand- in-hand  to expose the student to the external environment and prepare them for the labor market and life after school.

The scheme also gives the students the opportunity of familiarization and exposing them to the needed experience in handling the organization equipment which is not available in their various institutions and how to relate to their various customers since they are the king in any business oriented.

The program should therefore regard as important as to our various course of study, since it is a pivotal tool to the success and development of any nation
