What does ‘technical studies’ mean?
‘Technical studies’ is a broad term that describes the more practical aspects of hands-on fields such as engineering and computer science. Technical courses are generally more practical and vocational (career-oriented) than their theory-oriented academic counterparts.
Technical courses are a great option if:
- You want to gain job-relevant skills in a short period of time
- You want to prepare for a career in a hands-on environment
- You don’t want to spend hours and hours learning about theories and principles that won’t be relevant to you in your career
