The Office of Industrial Liaison manages activities that are related to industrial exposure and training of students. Industrial exposure and training mainly refers to work experience acquired during the program of study that is relevant to professional development prior to graduation

This involves  the  placement and monitoring  of students in an industrial environment, where they  are employed on  a full-time basis, in a career related  job  for a  specified duration. This period of training is intended to provide students with appropriate practical work experience, an opportunity to work alongside experience practitioners, and a chance to develop their leadership skills among other benefits.




The fundamental objective of industrial training is to adequately prepare students for employment in their chosen field of study. It helps to nurture a student's growth, enhance university- industry relationship and expose the student to technology, management techniques among other critical areas of development.

The main course objectives are:

  1. To integrate academic theory with industrial practice

  2. To widen knowledge of the industrial environment

  3. To work alongside experienced practitioners

  4. To develop good written and oral communication skills

  5. To understand the importance of team work

  6. To develop leadership skills
