Undergraduate Courses involved in SWEP
Student Work Experience Programme
In course studentsí industrial placement has been an integral feature of some courses (e.g. Engineering, Management and Social Work) for a number of years. In recent years, the University extended the opportunity for such in-course industrial training to all its courses. In this context, the Otto Essien Programme, a UNDP/University project, was run in 1994 and from 1996 to 1998. As from 1999, the University launched the SWEP. The SWEP extends the benefits of in-course students' attachment to organisations, to all University courses which do not have such attachment as part of their graduation requirement.
The SWEP 2000 is being launched this year as from 02 June 2000 and will last 8-10 weeks. As the name suggests, the objective of the programme is primarily to assist our students to gain meaningful exposure to the world of work, thereby linking the latter to academic training so as to help them enhance their interpersonal skills.
The SWEP is designed to help
university students to graduate with a solid academic background
well as developing other skills such as communication , research, teamwork, and experiential learning required for their professional development in their chosen careers . The SWEP will hopefully also
help them shape preferences and discern future career aspirations.
