Industrial Training Lecture for 300 Level Students
On Tuesday, January 23, 2024, the SIWES Directorate organized a lecture for the 300 level students who are going for industrial training. The lecture was aimed at providing an overview of industrial training, its benefits, and its requirements.
Industrial training refers to work experience that is relevant to professional development prior to graduation. It exposes students to the real-world challenges and opportunities in their chosen fields. It also helps them to develop skills such as communication, teamwork, problem-solving, and creativity.
The lecture was delivered by Dr. Emmanuel Ekpa a senior lecturer in the Department of Biotechnology. Dr. Emmanuel Ekpa shared his insights and experiences on various topics, such as:
- The types and scope of industrial training available for students
- The application and selection process for industrial training placements
- The expectations and responsibilities of industrial trainees and supervisors
- The assessment and evaluation criteria for industrial training
- The safety and ethical issues related to industrial training
- The best practices and tips for successful industrial training
The lecture was interactive and engaging, as Dr Ekpa used examples, and presentation slides to illustrate his points. He also answered the questions and concerns of the students and gave them feedback and advice.
The lecture was well-received by the students, who expressed their appreciation and interest in industrial training. The lecture also motivated them to prepare well for their upcoming industrial training and to make the most of their learning opportunities.
The SIWES Directorate thanked Dr. Ekpa for their valuable contribution and support. We hope that this lecture will help our students to achieve their academic and career goals through industrial training.
