Students’ Industrial Training started at the University of Ibadan in 1972 with the creation of a unit known as Industrial Coordination Unit in the then Institute of Applied Science and Technology which later transformed to Faculty of Technology. This Unit was modelled after the Cooperative Education & Career Services Centre of the University of Waterloo in Canada. It was established to coordinate industrial training of Engineering and Technology students in the Faculty. The initial handling of the coordination of the students’ industrial training activities was by the Canadian experts who were brought in by Canadian Industrial Development Agency [CIDA] who facilitated the programme.
