Industrial Training Guidelines

This training provides our students the opportunity to apply academic knowledge and skills in diverse corporate settings, while earning academic credits. Internship training was first introduced to the curriculum of the Faculty during the academic year 2008/2009. This training is also expected to equip the undergraduate with knowledge, skills, attitudes and mind set required to render her/him more employable as a graduate. Under this programme the interns are expected to undergo full time, structured on-the-job training in a variety of areas of their choice i.e. finance, management, HR, production, development, marketing, IT etc.

This training, which is of 6 months duration, carries a weight of 12 academic credits (i.e. if a student scores an ‘A’ grade for the training, he/she will be allocated 12 ‘A’s) out of the 30 credits he/she has to complete for the final year of the degree program. Students must score these 12 credits under two evaluation criteria; industrial training (MS 4014) 6C and industrial research project (MS 4015) 6C.
