Student industrial work experience report at Nigerian Bottling Company, Asejire


The students industrial work experience scheme (SIWES) is a skill impacting program designed to expose and prepare students of universities and other tertiary institutions for the industrial work situation that may be encountered after school. My SIWES program was undertaken at Nigeria Bottling Company limited, Asejire plant, Ibadan; a company that deals with the manufacturing of non-alcoholic beverage products such as Coca-Cola, limca, Fanta orange etc. The company has various sections such as; production section, quality assurance section and supply chain section. I had the opportunity to work in the quality assurance section and production line. The quality assurance section consists of quality assurance main laboratory, water treatment plant, syrup room, microbiologist laboratory and effluent treatment plant. The quality assurance main laboratory is where most quality control analyses are being carried out and they include beverage brix analysis, carbonation analysis, dissolved oxygen test and so on. Each section has different analyses carried out and they are well explained in this report. Finally, I conclude that SIWES program has made me to acquire more practical knowledge and gave me an insight to the theoretical works earlier done in school. I recommend that students should be paid stipends to make them enjoy the training and school supervisors should be visiting students at their place of attachments from time to time to make them concentrate more on it.
