Technician is a person who marvels at technical construction-based jobs and always remains ahead of other professionals in the field owing to his technical skills and acumen. He is the one lauded more than other professionals as he remains on the more prosaic side of the technical fence. Engineers are hired to introduce new concepts and designs but technicians are required to implement those designs and fit them into the practical space. He has to revisit the ideas to identify the technical fallout of the schemes when the differences in opinion of the engineers result in clashes which, in turn, stall the project completely. Besides resolving conflicts and assessing the extent of pragmatism of the new ideas, a technician’s job has greater things to accomplish depending on the nature of task he is employed in.
The technician’s job duties include the following specializations:
- An information technician has to install networks, software and program computers according to the work’s need.
- An engineering technician is entrusted with the task of making construction-based designs and fabricating plans.
- A medical technician is given the work of administering and assembling test reports in pathological laboratories.
