A
REPORT OF THE
STUDENTS’ INDUSTRIAL WORK EXPERIENCE SCHEME (SIWES)

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) is an effective instrument for exposing students to the realities of the work environment in Nigeria especially, and the world in general, in their chosen professions so as to achieve the much needed technological advancement for the nation. To give an account of the activities carried out during the scheme, the trainee submits a technical report stating, in details, all the knowledge and experience gained. This report gives a detailed explanation of all the activities carried out by the trainee. Before giving details of these activities, general background knowledge, as studied from relevant engineering texts available, is briefly explained. Then followed by the details of these activities, with each project been involved in outlined under each chapter. Thereafter, comes the chapter that explains the various problems encountered in executing the afore-mentioned projects and the solutions proffered to solve those problems. In order not to distract the line of thought while reading this report and to further elucidate on what has been written in the body of the report, the appendix section is provided to show calculations made in the course of carrying out these activities.

At the end of it all, conclusions are drawn, and recommendations made on how these activities carried out have trained the mind of the trainee in the engineering profession and have given some of necessary experience needed to face the challenges of this profession as well.
