The design & implementation of student SIWES logbook help the SWIES and departmental Coordinators to look over the activities carried out by the student at the industrial training.
The student’s 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 chance of acquainting themselves with the needed experience.

HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS
The system (student SIWES logbook) has (6) interfaces such as the student interface, industry-based supervisor interface, school-based supervisor interface, departmental coordinator interface, SIWES coordinator (SIWES unit) and the industrial training fund (ITF).
The general login interface is for all users, and the background carries a picture of undergraduate students. The admin logs in with his details (Username and password) which takes him to the Admin Home page
The student interface
The departmental coordinator registers the student and gives them login details which will enable the student to log with his/ her matric number. When the student successfully login, the system welcomes the student. The student interface has the following menu;
The student can enter his or her daily record. It continues and also for any day/week the student enters his activities and submits he cannot edit it anymore especially when it has been accessed by the industrial supervisor.
when the student submits the logbook it can be view by other units, then when the industrial base supervisor gives his/her comments it will be updated also. If the industrial base supervisor has not given his/her comment, then it will show “no comment yet”.
The place of attachment form will be filed on or before the stipulated time of 4weeks after orientation after which if the student is unable to fill the placement information it becomes inactive. and if a student enters his placement information he can edit on or before the 4weeks time given after which he cannot edit.
Note: students can access the logbook when they submit the placement information.
Students can download the ITF forms, complete them in a printable format and submitted to the ITF office.
