I have been looking for this for long, thanks for the post

You are welcome my brother! Are you on IT?

I am a computer science student and I was thinking, most places we do our SIWES don't really increment us in our field. So I'm considering starting an IT firm together with my friend. But I am not sure if we need to register our company before we can take students for IT. We are considering taking a few IT students, train them and have them to develop our foundation, before we can get a nice place and follow all due process.

GREAT idea, I think am buying into it already. You don't need to register before taking students on IT. Just register the company if you can and start recruiting IT Students ASAP.. Goodluck

Sorry am a computer engineering student, can I do my siwes in tecno office in ikeja

Yes, you can provided you have what to learn. Last year I did mine in University of Uyo Network Unit although am a Computer Science Student.

Am a computer science student seeking for a placement within lagos state most especially ikorodu

I do not know so much places in Lagos but there are so many places out there you hook yourself up... they may look small but offers great service. Just in case I find one, I'll let you know.

i did my IT in port Harcourt, but i stay in Lagos state. can i sign my log book in the IT office at Lagos ??

i do i get the allowance, is their any form i need to fill before the payment?

yes, you will be instructed on the needed form to fill.

Please as a business education student, is it OK if I do my IT in a bank?

Thank you for perhaps the most level headed thing I have read today. Thanks for the info, you made it easy to understand. I mostly use https://goo.gl/a7n1Eq to edit my PDFs. I think it also allows you to to create fillable pdfs and esign them.

is it compulsory to draw diagram in your log book ?

Is not compulsory just as it is not compulsory to complete your log book but it is highly recommended if you want to get good grades.

You cab do your IT anyway since the school didn't make provision for it
