In Nigeria, the Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) is a body that oversees and ensure that students in tertiary institution participate in an on the job training so as to get the first feel of their choosing profession, gain more experience and acquire the middle manpower skills needed to run an organization.
For universities, it falls during the third year when the student is in his/her 300 level like we call them. While in the polytechnics a mandatory one year IT is required after a successful completion of national diploma programme with the minimum of lower credit pass before proceeding for Higher National Diploma (HND) course.
The Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) is one of the big companies in Nigeria that offers students the opportunity to get on-the-job experience through SIWES/IT.
For interest, it is better to apply early before the end of National Diploma (ND) programme or towards second semester 300 level for degree students because the so you don’t start rushing things later because lots of students will apply since the company produces 10% of gas consumed worldwide.
