The teaching process in the colleges of
technology is similar to the production process in the factories that
manufacture and produce different products and market them after that. A
poor product will not succeed in competing in the market place, which leads
to its recession, and being useless. The same concept applies to the college
graduates. If the student graduates with low qualifications or with
qualifications that does not fill the needs of the job market; this will
lead to improper employment or unemployment of the graduate.
In this paper the authors suggest a plan to
improve the technical performance standard of the college graduates, and
demonstrate through a case study the steps taken to implement that plan. The
procedure of designing a curriculum to improve the technical education is
discussed fully in the paper. The paper also includes the tables designed to
tabulate data and facilitate the construction of the curriculum.
