In modern age technical education as become very much important for the common people for getting living in their lives. Generally technical education is related to some particular art, science or trade. But now –a-days it is restricted to some useful mechanical arts only. Actually no country throughout the world can hope to prosper on primitive method of cultivation and small-scale industries. A good country always aim at its technical basis because having technical background make the core of the country strong from inside, and have independent ways of working and choosing the labour. In one way the country GDP depends on the technical background, as this is the modern age everyone here is using or somewhere or the other are related to technical background.
Technical education is necessary
We now need to have some new kinds of technical approach on agricultural field. Having technical ideas on agriculture field will makes our farmer earn profitable money and it also increases the production of the food supply. Industries also require sophisticated machines and skilled labour to handle them, a good knowledge about the technical machines are very much essential as it will help the technical industry to run smoothly without any problem or technical glitch, and for that the person must held a technical certificate which will ensure that he/she are experienced to run that particular machine. Hence for every progressive country technical education stands a matter of necessity. If the country doesn't have proper technical facility then it could not prosper in the future. In India there were very few industries while the British ruled the country because they did not encourage the growth of industries for their own interest. But from the very beginning of independence our national leaders have been laying stress on science and technology so that the nation gets the immense success in industry and technical development. Now there are a number of technical schools and engineering colleges in our country, to endeavours achievements on the path of technical background.
Importance of technical education
Without the help of proper technological education a nation can never develop in agriculture and industry. Such a nation has to depend on primitive methods. As a result, it will be unable to challenge in competitive market. In India the education system is not related to our socio-economic needs and thus has created huge unemployment problem. Though the boys and girls are highly educated they feel frustrated after completing high general degree for their degrees are not necessary in large-scale in practical field. To avoid such problem our government should take some necessary steps ever more than before.
Now a day as we are seeing that the students need technical degree after completing their graduation to get a job, If the students are not getting job after completing their Bachelor degree also in the technical field, then what is the need of graduation certificate, then I think there should be only technical schools were the students can learn and as well will get the opportunity to do job and earn a decent amount from which he/she can live happily.
Technical courses are not confined to engineering degrees and diplomas only. In general, vocational courses i.e. skill based courses are available in various fields. The following is a list of some of these vocational courses -
1. Paramedical courses like medical diagnostics, auxiliary nursing and midwifery, ophthalmic techniques, X-ray techniques etc.
2. Agriculture based courses like horticulture, poultry farming and dairy sciences and technology etc.
3. Commerce based courses like stenography and computer applications, office secretaryship, accountancy and auditing etc.
4. Engineering based courses like air-conditioning and refrigeration technology, electrical technology, electronics technology and civil engineering etc.
