The early phase of science and technology in Nigeria was characterized by the theoretical lectures in polytechnics and universities which have proven to be an ill method of teaching. Students in Universities and Polytechnics graduate with little or no technical experience in their course of study.
In the same vein, students’ inability to contribute to the society is hampering the growth and development of our country. It was in this view that SIWES was introduced to the Industrial and Educational sector.
SIWES is an acronym for Student’s Industrial Work Experience Scheme. SIWES was established in the year 1973 in order to improve the standard of education in Nigeria in order to achieve the needed technological advancement.

Economists being able to evaluate the role technology plays in a country’s economy concluded that for an economy to grow and develop there be advancement in the technology sector of the country.
SIWES was solely funded by ITF (Industrial Training Funds) during it early stage not until it was difficult to continue for economic stress: then the responsibility was shared between Industrial Training Funds (ITF) and the Federal Government.

The Federal Government took over the funding of the scheme and Industrial Training Funds took over the managerial position by managing the funds given to them by the Federal Government in order to sustain the scheme.
