1.1 Student industrial working experience scheme (SIWES) Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) is one of the industrial training fund(ITF) programmes. It was designed to give Nigerian students studying occupationally-related courses in higher institutions the experience that would supplement their theoretical learning. This paper attempts to examine the role of the university in the implementation of SIWES programme in Nigerian Universities. The paper also among others, highlighted the origin,ojectives, problems and prospects of SIWES programme as related to its implementation in Nigerian universities. Few rrecommendfations were considered necessary for effective improvement and implementtion of the programme to enhance skill acquuisition by Nigerian students studying occupationally-related courses in the universities in a changing world.

2.0 WHAT IS NETWORKING
A network consists of two or more computers that are linked in order to share resources (such as printers and CDs), exchange files, or allow electronic communications. The computers on a network may be linked through cables, telephone lines, radio waves, satellites, or infrared light beams. Two very common types of networks include:
Local Area Network (LAN)
Wide Area Network (WAN)
You may also see references to a Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN), a Wireless LAN (WLAN), or a Wireless WAN (WWAN).
2.1 Local Area Network
A Local Area Network (LAN) is a network that is confined to a relatively small area. It is generally limited to a geographic area such as a writing lab, school, or building.Computers connected to a network are broadly categorized as servers or workstations. Servers are generally not used by humans directly, but rather run continuously to provide "services" to the other computers (and their human users) on the network. Services provided can include printing and faxing, software hosting, file storage and sharing, messaging, data storage and retrieval, complete access control (security) for the network's resources, and many others. Workstations are called such because they typically do have a human user which interacts with the network through them. Workstations were traditionally considered a desktop, consisting of a computer, keyboard, display, and mouse, or a laptop, with with integrated keyboard, display, and touchpad. With the advent of the tablet computer, and the touch screen devices such as iPad and iPhone, our definition of workstation is quickly evolving to include those devices, because of their ability to interact with the network and utilize network services. Servers tend to be more powerful than workstations, although configurations are guided by needs. For example, a group of servers might be located in a secure area, away from humans, and only accessed through the network. In such cases, it would be common for the servers to operate without a dedicated display or keyboard. However, the size and speed of the server's processor(s), hard drive, and main memory might add dramatically to the cost of the system. On the other hand, a workstation might not need as much storage or working memory, but might require an expensive display to accommodate the needs of its user. Every computer on a network...
