Technical Education covers courses and programmes in engineering, technology, management, architecture, town planning, pharmacy and applied arts & crafts, hotel management and catering technology.
The technical education system in the country can be broadly classified into three categories – Central Government funded institutions, State Government/State-funded institutions & Self-financed institutions. The 65 Centrally funded institution of technical and science education are as under:
Besides the above, there are four Boards of Apprenticeship Training (BOATs).
The Central Government is also implementing the following schemes/programmes: -
(i) Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP) assisted by the World Bank. (ii) Indian National Digital Library for Science & Technology (INDEST).
There is one Public Sector Undertaking, namely, Educational Consultants India Ltd. (Ed.CIL) under the Ministry. There are also Apex Councils, namely the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and Council of Architecture (COA).
IMPORTANCE OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION.
Education is important for every individual in a nation. It plays a vital role to change the stare of a country.

Education is important for every individual in a nation. It plays a vital role to change the stare of a country. No country could bring a revolution in it unless its everybody are educated enough to meet the challenges. Education makes a man realize about himself and his goals and how to achieve that goals.
Basically, Education is divided into three groups. TheEducation which teaches the concerns of a society is called Social Education. The Education which develops a personality inside a man himself is called Spiritual Education. The Education that concerns with the professionalism is called Vocational Education. The TechnicalEducation comes under the branch of Vocational Education which deals practically in the field of trade, commerce, agriculture, medicine & Engineering.
We are living in the modern age of science where we found Technologies in every aspect of life. What makes life so brain friendly for us simply; these are the Technologies which we use for our ease and comforts. Not only in our daily life but also in the research centre, in defensive measured of a country, biological aspects etc. No nation could generate the progress unless it promotes technical aspects in its fields.

(How can we develop technical skill in our young men?)
Outline :( Only Main Points)
2 Advantages and Importance
4 Condition in Pakistan
According to human needs, education can be divided into three parts: Social or Political education; Spiritual education; Vocational or Technicaleducation.Education that teaches us how to live in a society is called Social or Political education. Education that develops our personality and character may be termed as Spiritual education. Then, education that teaches us how to earn a living is named as Vocational education. Technicaleducation is a branch of Vocational education. By Technicaleducation we mean education dealing with some practical or mechanical art. Technicaleducation includes training in trade, commerce, carpentry, weaving, agriculture, medicine and engineering. Its aim is to provide instruction and training in skills that have a practical utility. It helps us to meet the needs of the industrial age.
Technicaleducation is very important in the modern age. America, France,...
...DESCRIBE YOUR OWN PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION. WHAT EDUCATION MEANS TO YOU AND HOW IT CAN BE ACHIEVED, WHAT METHOD OF LEARNING YOU BELIEVE IS THE BEST, WHAT ADVANTAGES DISTANCE LEARNING AND PERSONALIZED LEARNING HAS ETC.
To describe 'education' in the simplest form is the process of teaching and or learning. This encompasses the theory and the process of achieving enlightenment or knowledge and understanding.
All human beings on this planet require knowledge to survive and without it even biblically it has been mentioned that people perish. It is therefore important in my personal life to be knowledgeable enough in all areas of human endeavour. I would like to describe my personal belief about knowledge epistemologically according to George F. Kneller, 1964. “Knowledge is a universal matter and aims to discover what is involved in the process of knowing. It asks questions such as: Is there something common to all the different activities to which we apply the term “ knowing”? Is knowing a special sort of mental act? If so, what is the difference between knowledge and belief? Can we know anything beyond the objects with which our senses acquaint us?
The theory of knowledge has ideas about how people think and feel despite not having a claim to an explanation scientifically. I believe just as Kneller, 1964 asserted that there are about 6 different types of knowledge as explained below:
1. REVEALED KNOWLEDGE
This is the kind of...
...The main aim of any education, be it primary education or secondary education or anything thereafter should be to help students to gather knowledge, develop character, develop a never-say-die attitude and hone skill sets which will help them become successful citizens of the world.
While primary and secondary education will go a long way in building the moral fabric and attitudinal strengths of students, special skill sets in specified areas of focus is best learnt through special courses which are done usually after a student completes his secondary education.
Technicaleducation is a field which takes care of honing and developing special skill sets which ultimately determine the student’s employability or otherwise. Hence for the development of the youth and to make them job-ready, it is highly important to have the best of technicaleducation facilities. Technicaleducation again should teach the student to focus on specific skills after identifying his areas of strength. This is a tough job and calls or close observation of the student. Technicaleducation could be best taught with a combination of classroom sessions and also by taking recourse to online education because this form of education is going to redefine the meaning of education is...
I think technicaleducation is more of a valuable asset to society than liberal arts educational fields. Technical schools offer job specific coursework which are usually jobs that are high in demand. When it comes to the cost of your tuition, its way less expensive than a four year college
. Technical schools cost less than most colleges. It takes less time to complete because you don’t have to take two years of history and English courses for a simple career like becoming a massage therapist. You spend more time really learning things about the field, while others in traditional colleges are in a classroom. According to Mech Institute 23.6% students take 7yrs to obtain a bachelor’s degree, and cost double the tuition to go to get a liberal education than a technicaleducation.
You learn in a more hands on way. You learn from a person who is a master in the field you’re learning about. Technical colleges offer apprenticeships and when done with training you will be able to do the tasks needed to be done. You can go right to work without any additional training. For employers this is huge because a lot of companies spend a lot of money training employees that sometimes just quit. It costs employers a lot of money to train people just for them to quit over time.
Traditional colleges are not for everyone....

...TechnicalEducation Scenario in India -Impact,
Success Till Now and Challenges
Quite afresh, I engaged in a healthy conversation with my teacher who was very cynical about the condition of technicaleducation in India. She asked me a very simple question- why is a majority of the modern research activity taking place in the US itself and not in countries with much more population like India? I had an expeditious reply to this question in my mind and I quickly said that it's because of the lower literacy rate here. She then did some statistical data analysis for me and continued that in spite of that, India boasts of a larger populace of educated men and women than America and added that this still doesn't concern the research and development comparison between both the countries. I, again, was impetuous in my remark that there are fewer incentives and very less scope in India as compared to that present in the US. I don't know if I was marginally right or not, but she again looked up Wikipedia and told that we had an immeasurable number of technical universities and colleges as compared to the "developed" countries and hence, obviously, humongous workforce to implement proper education. I felt lost with the facts that I was facing. Everything seems so nicely set up and the cogwheels seem to be working quite perfectly, but still the result that comes out of this...
