What Is A SIWES Logbook

SIWES Logbook
              IMSU SIWES Logbok


The SIWES Logbook also known as Industrial Training or Internship Logbook is an official record booklet, that is being issued by various Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education, Colleges of Technology, Colleges of Agriculture to their Internship Students to carefully and neatly record down their daily or weekly activities, projects, jobs etc carried out in their workplaces.

Most importantly, the SIWES logbook usually contains basic information of the I.T student and the firm the student must have been attached for the training.

In addition, the SIWES logbook also varies and differs among higher institutions i.e. SIWES logbooks issued to IMSU Students can be different from the ones issued to FUTO, UNN, ABSU, POLYNEKEDE, MADONNA, UNIPORT, NOUN, LASU, or even Ghana, Kenya, USA or Indian students etc.

As a result, I’ll be using my own IMSU SIWES logbook as a guide in showing and teaching you how to fill in yours.

So don’t panic, if your own logbook is different.

Just observe, read and learn.

How To Fill SIWES Logbook

1. Student Particulars Page

SIWES Logbook (Student Particulars Page)

This page is usually the first you’ll see and will have to fill in your SIWES logbook.

It is going to contain your basic information such as:

  • Your recently snapped passport
  • Full Name
  • Matriculation Number
  • Faculty e.g. Science, Engineering etc
  • Course of Study e.g. Biochemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science etc
  • Year of Study i.e. 200, 300 or 400 level
  • Permanent Hometown or Residential Address
  • Sex (Male or Female)
  • Correct Names and Address of your Parents or Guardian
  • Name of Industry-Based Supervisor

Once you start your industrial training in your workplace, you’ll have to work in a particular section(s), and under a particular person(s), that will act as your supervisor, co-ordinator, instructor or guardian throughout your training period.

For example, during my own Industrial Training in a private hospital in Owerri, I worked in the Laboratory section and under the Lab. Scientist, who was my teacher, instructor and supervisor. So, I had to write down his name as my Industry-Based Supervisor.

Moreover, you may have more than one Industry-Based Supervisor. In that case, you can choose to write down all their names.

  • Name of University-Based Supervisor

Some schools, departments usually send lecturers, workers, staffs to the various workplaces of their Internship students – to monitor, supervise, grade and advise them on the right things to do.

So, you’ll have to write down their names in this field – if anyone was assigned to you by your school.

During my own industrial training, nobody was assigned to me by my school. So I had to leave this field blank.

If you have a bad handwriting, try filling in this particular page in bold capital letters for clarity sake.

2. Organization Profile Page

SIWES Logbook Organization Profile Page

This is the page in your SIWES logbook that will contain the basic details and information of the firm you applied for your industrial training. The name of the firm, location, address, telephone number, type of business, products and other relevant information’s should be carefully and correctly entered.

Meanwhile, if you should encounter any difficulty in filling in this page, try meeting your Industry-Based Supervisor/Employer to help and guide you.

Also ensure to fill in this page in bold capital letters – if you have a bad handwriting.

3. Activities Record Page

This is the page in your SIWES logbook, you’ll record down your daily or weekly activities, projects, jobs etc at your workplace.

As you can see above, it’s partitioned into the days of the week i.e. (from Mondays — Saturdays).

Not all firms and I.T students work on Saturdays. If you’re among this category, then there is no need for you to fill in the Saturday field in your SIWES logbook.

Finally, you’ll also need to write down the name of the project/job you carried out that particular week. After that, your Industry-Based Supervisor has to sign and stamp this page with the correct date entered

4. Monthly Work Summary Description Page

SIWES Logbook Diagram Page

This is the page in your SIWES logbook you’ll have to summarize all that was carried out monthly by you at your workplace.

Therefore, it could include sketches, diagrams, survey maps, building plans, chemical formulas, enumeration tables, menu plans, charts etc.

5. University-Based Supervisor Monthly Visit Page

This particular page in your SIWES logbook is expected to be completed on monthly basis by the supervisor assigned to you by your school to monitor, grade and guide you on the right things to do during their visits.

The comment should say whether:

  • You’re adequately exposed or underexposed
  • The experience is standard or substandard, relevant or irrelevant
  • You were present or absent

However, you’ll have to leave this page blank, if nobody was assigned to you by your school.

6. SIWES Monthly Evaluation Page

This is your personal assessment page. It’s to be entered by your Industry-Based Supervisor.

    Hi i am a mathematics student from abia state university. I work as a secretary under sales and marketing all i do is scan and photocopy documents don’t really know how to fill my log book

    • Mcfidel Onyemauwa

      Scanning and photocopying of documents isn’t proper as an activity for a mathematics I.T student. You are to learn and do things like e.g. data entry, computation, compilation, analysis, balancing of payments, record book etc. Try switching to or working in the ACCOUNTING SECTION.
