How To Write IT/SIWES Report – NOUN

In this article, I will explain in detail how to write the National Open University Of Nigeria IT/SIWES Report.


Stands for Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES), it is a skills training programme that is designed to expose and as well prepare students of Universities, Polytechnics/Colleges of Technology/Colleges of Agriculture and Colleges of Education for the industrial work situation they are likely to meet after graduation. In Nigeria, it is designed in such a way to fit into the curriculum of students mostly in 300Level and 400Level, and it as well carries a large credit load that can easily boost ones GP if one actually gets an “A” grade in it.



The report of the Industrial Training/Siwes is an essential part of the programme. The programme is, therefore, not deemed to have been passed through by the student, by the School Board of Studies and the University of Senate until a satisfactory report has been written. The guidelines for writing the reports are therefore set out below and the student should write the report stressing what he/she did during his/her attachment.
The plan of the report is the student’s own responsibility. To streamline all reports, the following outline is to be followed by every student.
  • Title
  • Name of Student (Surname first)
  • Matriculation Number
  • Course and Year (e.g. Bus. Edu. 3)
  • Location & Firm of Training
  • Summary or Abstracts of report (about ¾ – 1 page) it should be containing all the essentials inside the report)
  • Acknowledgement
  • Introduction:- Here, the student should state what he/she is going to write about. He should briefly outline the organizational structure for the company.


This is the most important part of the report and the student must show own innovations. The plan and order sequence should include mainly:

  • The skills and practices the student required
  •  The operation and maintenance training received
  • The specific work done must be given adequate coverage
  • Any design, calculations, and analysis must be carefully but briefly recorded.
  • Supervision and any leadership role played in a given project or assignment (if any) must be briefly reported so as to leave no one in doubt as to student’s actual involvement.
  • Sketches, diagrams, graphs, and drawings (if any) must all have titles and designated as Fig. 1, 2 etc. and each must be referred to at least once in the report.
  •  Experimental test, together with the tables of results must also be given adequate coverage. Each table should be given a title in a sequential order as Table 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. with related titles and must be referred to at least once in the text.


Here, the student should state again what he has achieved, contributed and learned during this attachment.


All those who have in any way helped the student to the success of his training may be noted in this section.


A list of references may be necessary. It should be listed in the order the references are referred to in the report and also listed alphabetically.


A detailed description of the working principles of most apparatus, equipment or devices may be reserved for the appendix section. Only in exceptional cases when the apparatus is the main focus of training should a detailed description form part of the main report. DURATION OF ATTACHMENT FOR SIWES FUNDING

The minimum duration for SIWES should normally be 24 weeks (6 months) at a stretch. The period is longer for engineering and technology programmes. The ITF will not pay for any attachment period that is less than 24 weeks.
In most institutions, SIWES is done at the end of the 2nd-semester examination of either 300, 400 or 500 levels. The time and duration will have to be worked out jointly by each school and the directorate and the ITF.


  • Master List
  • Placement List
  • Summary Sheet


All students accepted for SIWES must be given an orientation on SIWES by their institutions during which ITF staff must be in attendance


Students on attachment are to be supervised by the professional ITF staff and the institution’s supervisors (comprising the staff of Schools and the Directorate).
