While there is no fixed definition of the term ‘technical studies,’ it is often used as a broad term to describe the more practical aspects of ‘hands-on’ fields such as engineering and computer science. Technical courses, then, are generally more practical and vocational (career-oriented) than their theory-oriented academic counterparts.
