Essay on Importance of Technical Education in Pakistan
The aim of technical education is to provide instruction and training in skills that have a practical utility. It helps us to meet the needs of the industrial age. Technical education is very important in the modern age. All other countries are rich and prosperous because of progress in technical education. This education produces engineers, builders, doctors, mechanics, and technicians, who are very useful in an industrial society.
It is the only answer to the problems of our expanding economy. Technical education produces doers and workers. These workers make real and important contribution to the welfare of society. Technical education promotes the material prosperity and economic advancement. People begin to have faith in the dignity of labour. Technical education makes a country rich, prosperous and resourceful. Technical education thus develops and improves indigenous trade.
In Pakistan there is lack of technical education. People don’t consider this field or are ashamed of adopting this field. We should join this field proudly. Today youngsters in Pakistan always think of office jobs and they dislike practical work or to work in factories and this is also one of the reasons that unemployment is widely spread in our country. Poverty is due to the negligence of technical education.
Therefore it is necessary that technical institutes should be developed and secondly the idea of dignity of labor should be popularized. We must keep in mind that progress is only possible through technical education. It is high time that people should take more and more interest in technical education to make our country strong technically and economically.
