Abstract:

Theoretical knowledge alone would not usually prepare an educated person for the world of work. A productive individual must not only be knowledgeable in theory but must also be versatile in the application of skills to perform defined jobs or work, hence the need for Students’ Work Experience Program (SWEP). The 2012/ 2013 Students’ Work Experience Programme (SWEP) was undertaken at Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti, Nigeria (ABUAD) by all 200 and 300 Level engineering students. The Students’ Work Experience Programme (SWEP) helps develop in the students, a logical mode of thinking and reasoning that promotes a practical application of acquired theoretical, knowledge in overcoming technical and professional challenges. Besides it also helps in training the students on how to acknowledge and appreciate the numerous professional challenges of their immediate environment and the society at large and offer solutions, which their knowledge empowerment avails them. The SWEP featured activities in three key Engineering fields namely: Mechanical, Electrical and Civil. The Civil Project include: moulding of interlocking tiles, terrazzo floor making, participation in on-going construction works on campus, sewage system etc. During the SWEP, students were resourcefully engaged in terrazzo flooring and moulding of interlocking tiles as well as other various engineering activities within the school. These make students conversant with laboratory, workshop tools and machineries and to practicalise what they have been taught theoretically thereby acquainting them with workshop and industrial practices.
