An important highlight of the programme is the industrial attachment which will be for a minimum period of six months and it carries 6 units. Students will be attached to various chemical, manufacturing, service and related industriescovering the Rain Semester of 300 level. This will necessitate having a strong liaison service between the Department of Industrial Chemistry, Industries and the SIWES office of the University.
The students shall submit detailed reports of the industrial attachment at the end of the period. The reports shall be graded and a student’s assessment shall be based on his performance in the industry, the quality and oral presentation of his report.
The objectives of the industrial attachments are to:
- Bring the industries (labour market) and students to close contact
- Have a preview of job opportunities for prospective graduates
- Expose students to practical application of knowledge in class.
