You are welcome to the Directorate of the Students’ Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta. (FUNAAB).
Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) is part of the approved Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) for SIWES-approved undergraduate degree programmes in Nigerian Universities. It is a planned and structured scheme with specific career objectives geared towards developing participants’ occupational competencies, whereby students acquire Relevant Production Skills (RPSs) to prepare them for post-graduation real work situations.
Sixteen (16) credit units are attached to the scheme, and students are graded according to their level of participation. SIWES is for duly qualified students in their penultimate year who are carrying over less than 16 course units. Students having 16 course units and above as carry over are not allowed to participate in the scheme.
