Structured Internship Program

sip

Structured Internship Program (SIP) is an attachment programs between students with the industry. The aims of the program is to provide the students with the technical and soft skills experience. The program will be conducted in three phases:

1. Phase 1: Semester 3, students in year 2 (duration: 2 months)

2. Phase 2: Semester 3, students in year 3 (duration: 2 months)

3. Phase 3: Semester 2, students in year 4 (duration: 6 months)

Phase 1 and 2 will be conducted at the faculty level while Phase 3 is a part of the training program provide by UTHM. This program is compulsory for all students to enhance their knowledge and technical skills and also to adapt them with the actual working environment.Every student will be evaluated by the faculty and industrial supervisor.  In this programme, students are expected to be trained in systematic and structured ways.  Students are also trained in the aspects of work safety and health as well as ethics in the industry.  Students are expected to be involved in the workplace with certain constrains that benefited them in improving their mental and physical fitness.

 

 

GOAL

The main goal of SIP program is to give exposure to the students about the reality of the working world where they will be exposed directly to the profession as well as applications in their respective fields from basic level up to the higher level. In addition, this program also increase job opportunities for the students after graduation.

 

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of this program, students should be able:

1.      To develop soft skills that can give the students a competitive advantage when applying for a job.

2.      To gain practical experience.

3.      To apply their theoretical knowledge in the actual career world.

4.      To improve skills to interact and communicate effectively.

5.      To gain experience and knowledge that can be used to find a suitable job after graduation.

TRAINING & PLACEMENT

Students who qualify for the SIP program will be placed in the public or private sector accordingtotheir respective fields. The placement will be determined by the faculty or by selection from the students after get the confirmation from the faculty. Students are prohibited from changing the industry unless prior permission from the faculty.

 

 

 

ASSESSMENT

All activities of students undergoing the SIP program will be evaluated by industry supervisor and the faculty supervisor. Achievements and performance assessment of the students is based on the following:

 

1.   Evaluation by industry supervisor include the following aspects:

i. Personality: attitude, responsibility, discipline, appearance

ii. Skills: Use of academic knowledge, thinking skills, analytical, engineering and technology skills, communication, technical presentations and decision making.

2.   Evaluation by faculty supervisor.

During this training, the faculty will organize the visit as already described. Supervisors are required to make a report for each student based on the evaluation form provided.

3.   Logbook students

Students are required to complete a log book provided during the training. The log books are reviewed each week by industry supervisor and at least once by a faculty supervisor during the SIP. Evaluation will be given to students based on the log book and the academic content (engineering and technology). Log books must be submitted to the faculty supervisor within one (1) week from the date of completion from the training.

 

 

GRADE

The grade is given to students is HL (Pass) or HG (Fail).
