We developed the e-SIWES portal in order to enhance the manual task of carrying out SIWES activities such as registration, dissemination of information, filling of log book for students’ day-to-day activities and supervision/assessment by lecturers and industry based supervisors. Supervisors are assigned immediately the students commence their industrial training and the students are monitored in real-time. The SIWES logbook and assessment forms are digitized for filling by students and grading by the supervisors electronically. With the e-SIWES portal, important messages can also be broadcast to all students at once and on a prompt and regular basis.
