CHAPTER ONE

  1. INTRODUCTION

The Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) slated for 6 months which is a requirement for the completion of my course of study, was undertaken at Kwara State Ministry of Works and Transport, Ilorin.  As a student attaché at Kwara State Ministry of Works and Transport, Ilorin, I was exposed to Engineering Practical activities which really bridged between the theories learnt in the classroom and the real world practical applications. I had the opportunity to make use of machines such as the Concrete mixing machine, the Excavator and reinforcement sizes etc.

1.1OBJECTIVE OF SIWES

  1. SIWES will provide students the opportunity to test their interest in a particular career before permanent commitments are made.
  2. SIWES students will develop skills in the application of theory to practical work situations.
  3. SIWES will provide students the opportunity to test their aptitude for a particular career before permanent commitments are made.
  4. SIWES students will develop skills and techniques directly applicable to their careers.
  5. SIWES will aid students in adjusting from college to full-time employment.
  6. SIWES will provide students the opportunity to develop attitudes conducive to effective interpersonal relationships.
  7. SIWES will increase a student’s sense of responsibility.
  8. SIWES students will be prepared to enter into full-time employment in their area of specialization upon graduation.
  9. SIWES students will acquire good work habits.
  10. SIWES students will develop employment records/references that will enhance employment opportunities.

1.2 SCOPE OF THE REPORT

The scope of work includes the following:

  1. Clearing and removal of topsoil and cuttings
  2. Filling with laterite from approved borrow pits
  3. Provide reinforced concrete drain of 0.75m by 0.6m
  4. Provide reinforced concrete slab (150mm thick)
  5. Provide and shape naturally occurring laterite material to a compacted thickness of 150mm sub-base  and base each

CHAPTERTWO

2.0   INDUSTRIAL/ FIELD EXPERIENCE

2.1   PROJECT

 During the period of six month of Industrial Training, I was involved in the construction unit of civil engineering.

I was posted to OSI-OBBO AYEGUNLE ROAD Construction, where I was involved in Earthwork, Construction of drainage.

2.1.1   construction stages

This is the phase that requires the most planning; this is because if you take your time when designing, the actual construction process will be a lot quicker and smoother. Planning at this stage tends to be more basic, they will be asking questions like; will this actually be feasible, or will it cost more than we have. The initial design for the project will be drawn by the Engineer who will have been given a brief of the client and will then from this brief begin design. After the surveyor investigation has been completed, the structural engineer designs for the reinforcement and grade of concrete to be used for the construction project. The structural engineer designs for the maximum loading envisaged that the pavement would carry and at the same time consider the cost of construction.

ABSTRACT

SIWES (Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme) was established by the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the year 1973 to cater for the problem of underdevelopment and skill acquisition and also to impact practical knowledge and skills to students, thus bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical. The Scheme exposes students to industry based skills necessary for a smooth transition from the classroom to the world of work. It affords students of tertiary institutions the opportunity of being familiarized and exposed to the needed experience in handling machinery and equipment which are usually not available in the educational institutions. The major reason behind the embankment of students in SIWES was to expose them to industrial environment and enable them develop occupational competence so that they can readily contribute their quota to national economic and technological development after graduation. Beside the practical knowledge acquired, it introduces the student to the rules and regulations, principles and etiquette of the environment grading their various disciplines and capacities. The Student Industrial working Experience Scheme is the accepted skill training program, which form part of the approved minimum academic standard in the various degree programs, for all Nigeria Universities. So the scheme affords the students the opportunity of familiarizing and exposing them to the needed experience in handling equipment and machinery which are usually not available in the institutions related to their course of study. The 400 level Industrial attachment is aimed at exposing the student to hands on practical aspect of various lessons that has been taught in class and to provide other practical training relevant to the field of engineering and general development. This report focuses on the experience gained at the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Akangba sub-region, Surulere, Lagos.
