Why we require technical education so badly?
Ours is the age of technology. We produce things of daily use like bicycles, radios, electric fans, and so on with different kinds of machine. We have well established industries from which we get things like sugar, cloth, medicines, etc. we have started assembling cars, tractors and other vehicles in big plants. We require technical knowledge to run our factories, industrial plants and manufacturing centers.
Technical education is essential to industries progress. Ours is a developing country. We have to establish new industries and expand the old ones. We have to set up new factories, mills and workshops.
Technical experts are necessary for quick agricultural progress. With the passage of time, we shall have to mechanize our farming on a large scale. We shall need industries producing machines, tractors, tube well engines and so on. We shall need technical experts to run these types of industries.
Our defense industry needs specially trained technicians and workers. Special training institutions may also be set up to meet the requirements of our armed forces in the production of arms and ammunition.
We should offer the best kind of technical training education to our students. Then we may not have engaged any foreign experts in our technical education establishment.
