How to fill a SIWES Logbook and Samples

Do you know filling a siwes logbook is not as hard as it seems? Think of it as recording your daily activities on a piece of paper. It does not matter what field of study you are in, be it engineering, medical, or art, and it only becomes a problem if you make a false or misleading entry in your logbook.

The logbook is a documentary entry for all SIWES activities by the SIWES student during the Industrial training. The aim is to verify whether the SIWES student is knowledgeable of his/her training.

What to record in your logbook

You need to record:

  1. Name of the Student
  2. Institution
  3. Course of study
  4. level Completed
  5. Name of Company/Establishment and Address
  6. Name of Industry-Based SIWES Co-Ordinator
  7. Week Progress Sheet

Only your daily experience can be recorded in your SIWES logbook. Do not record activities not relevant to your training in your logbook.

You are responsible for the accuracy of your logbook entries. Each entry must be verified and signed by your team lead at the end of each week.

The first weekly assessment page must contain an introduction only. No one will believe you started work on your first week, you could say:

Day&Date Work Description
