DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION of Electronic-SIWES management and processing system.
The existence of a gap between the theoretical principles and real practical in various fields such as engineering and technology, science, agriculture, medicine, management and other professional educational programs in Nigeria tertiary institution poses a great need to expose students to machines and equipment, professional work methods and ways of safe-guarding the work area and workers in industries and other organizations in order to improve the practical skills of students.
Knowing fully well that Training is a key factor in enhancing the efficiency and expertise of the workforce and no society can achieve meaningful progress without encouraging its youth to acquire necessary practical skills that will enable them to harness available resources to meet the needs of society- an innovative phenomenon in human resources development and training in Nigerian tertiary institutions by the industrial training fund (ITF). This innovative phenomenon was called The Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) otherwise referred to as Industrial Training (IT).
A portal system can be described in different ways depending on differing point of views. To a user of a portal, it is a web system that provides the functions and features to authenticate and identify users. It provides an easy, intuitive, personalized and user-customizable web-interface for facilitating access to information and services that are of primary relevance and interests to them. However, to the organization that sets up the portal, it is a system that helps the organization to catalogue or organize collections of different and multiple sources of information for dissemination to many users according to their specific privileges, needs and interests. Therefore, the main purpose for setting up a portal is to bring vast information and resources available from many sources to many users in an effective manner. There have been several efforts in Nigeria and in other parts of the world to build portal systems that can facilitate administration and learning in higher institutions.
SIWESFEDPOLYOKO is a portal system hosted by the Federal Polytechnic, Oko in Anambra State, Nigeria. It is designed to help the students who are undergoing their four months SIWES training to connect back to the Institution. The blogsite on the portal helps students to keep abreast of what is required of them while on SIWES training and gives them necessary information as regards to their on-going academic program.
The problem faced by Babcock University, in managing SIWES is yet to be eliminated. This problem includes: Difficulty in checking the profile of the student and improper way of storing student information; Stressful process involve in the submission of acceptance letter; Delay in submission of the weekly and SIWES report, job placement. This research will lead to design and development of a cost effective and user friendly system that automates almost all the entire activities of both the student and lecturer during SIWES.
