INDUSTRIAL TRAINING                                                                      

The Industrial Training aspect of the programme is divided into four parts. The first part is the Students’ Work Experience Programme (SWEP) which is held at the end of 200-Level just during the end of session break in the Faculty’s workshop practice and have a “hand-on” experience of practical engineering. This serves as a channel for integrating in-house entrepreneur development and skill into our programme.

The tree other parts of the Industrial Training expose the students to real-life situations in engineering or related establishments within and outside the country.
