Would love to help you with this question! Can you clarify what you are looking for? Definition of tech? How to get into tech? What tech means to me? Thanks!
Tech (technology) is a broader word that can mean many things. It can be technology as appliances that you are using like your computer. It could be a science of developing technologies in various areas. It could be technology as an industry where you might work and in this sense it doesn't always mean only science. For example: I am working for Dell which is technology company but I am working in Finance. I think it depends what exactly would you like to know about technology and in what context.
TECH means "Technician" or "Technology"
The technician is someone who is familiar with the ins and outs of a device. With this knowledge, they are able to troubleshoot most problems that a user experiences. Information on how to reach technical support is usually provided with the packaged materials included with a device
Tech is an abbreviation for 'Technology' and this is an umbrella term for the whole Information Technology industry. In the industry there are many different types of roles some more technical then others and most of them require different types of skills.
It's good to explore the different roles in the IT industry to get a good understanding of what is on offer to find the best option for you.
Julius recommends the following next steps:
The role and impact of technology in both our personal and working lives is ever growing. Understanding how people shape technology and how technology shapes people's interactions with each other and the natural world is important not only for those who research, develop and implement new technologies but also for all those people and organisations that have to use those technologies in their working and personal lives.
Technology is not a neutral word. Different people will give it different meaning depending on their viewpoint and context.
Members of the Faculty of Technology are no different but for many years we have adopted one particular definition of technology that reflects our own aims and objectives:
Technology concerns itself with understanding how knowledge is creatively applied to organised tasks involving people and machines that meet sustainable goals. There are three important aspects to this definition:
Technology is about taking action to meet a human need rather than merely understanding the workings of the natural world, which is the goal of science. The invention of the microscope was driven by a need to explore the world of the small, beyond our unaided vision. This technological solution to a long standing problem has in turn enabled us to understand more the workings of the world which in turn has led to the development of more technologies.
It uses much more than scientific knowledge and includes values as much as facts, practical craft knowledge as much as theoretical knowledge. The iPod is an example of where the physics of making a small device carry so much music is married with creative design to make an iconic must have accessory.
It involves organized ways of doing things. It covers the intended and unintended interactions between products (machines, devices, artifacts) and the people and systems who make them, use them or are affected by them through various processes. Many people like to drink coffee, often in a coffee shop. That coffee may have come from trees which have been bred specifically for increased yields that support a small farmer and his family but that requires pesticides that were developed and manufactured in another country. The harvested coffee beans will themselves be transported around the world, to be processed and placed in packages which are are distributed to shops that then make the cup of coffee in a polystyrene cup that was manufactured for the purpose but which then needs to disposed of and so on. Every choice we make relies on, and feeds, a highly interdependent and far reaching way of life where some have much and some have little.
Technology is a hands on, can do profession where people have to be skilled in many of the following: engineering, communicating, designing, developing, innovating, managing, manufacturing, modelling, and systems thinking. But technology also gives us various products which can be used for good or ill or where the benefits are disputed and similarly the processes involved in producing and using technology means that we should all take an interest in whether it provides us and eveyone else with a sustainable future.
Tech means someone who knows technical things or someone who can troubleshoot technical things or someone who trains other people on technical things .
Depending on which subject you study or learn or have expertise with,you will be called respective tech.
For example : - Hardware tech , Software tech . Computer tech, IT tech etc
One who studies or is highly interested or proficient in a technical field, especially electronics and computers
Tech means technology in terms of a field of study. For example computer technology is in the tech field.
Tech as a job normally is someone that assists a licensed professional . For example a pharmacist has a degree in pharmacy and is licensed to fill prescriptions. The pharmacy tech is the person that works under the pharmacist, but is not licensed.
I guess the question is who is a tech/technician?.
An expert in the practical application of a science would be the definition.
For example: A person who can assemble and disassemble a computer, check its functionality and troubleshoot and resolve issues on it will be called as a computer technician.
tech is used for the one who is specialized in some field or technology so that he can take care of all the issues in that particular technology.
i hope this cleared all your doubts
Tech can be explained as technically qualified person. It also means that a person who can resolve any technical problems.
Tech comes from the word 'technology'. It can be used in places where you want to use the word technology. For example instead of telling technology industry, you can tell tech industry. This is the industry which deals with technology and its application in any field whether it be computers, automobile or production line.
The word tech can also be used to define a person who works in technology industry. Hope it helped.
Technical support (often shortened to tech support) refers to a plethora of services by which enterprises provide assistance to users of technology products such as mobile phones, televisions, computers, software products or other informatic, electronic or mechanical goods.
Tech typically means "technology" industry. So companies such as Microsoft or Dell, although it can be broader to include bio-technology for example.
Technology can defined as the ability to responsibly use appropriate ways to:
Access, manage, integrate, evaluate, design and create information to improve learning in all subject areas
Acquire lifelong knowledge and skills in the 21st century
Technology is something which makes life and tasks simpler for humans in efficient way .
Stands for "Information Technology," and is pronounced "I.T." It refers to anything related to computing technology, such as networking, hardware, software, the Internet, or the people that work with these technologies. That means the term "IT," already highly overused, is here to stay.
The technical support team is composed of individuals that are familiar with the ins and outs of a device. With this knowledge, they are able to troubleshoot most problems that a user experiences. Information on how to reach technical support is usually provided with the packaged materials included with a device.
Tech can mean a lot of things like technician, technology but it depends on which context you are asking. I am a tech means I am a technician whereas I am tech savvy means I love technology and I am eager to know about all the new technology coming to the market. As being a tech support executive I help customers with their technical issues on the computer and resolve it but an engineer at NASA probably taking care of their technical issues is also a technician.So it varies from person to person.
tech is nothing but technology;it has multiple meaning as follows-
the branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science.
the application of this knowledge for practical ends.
the terminology of an art, science, etc.; technical nomenclature.
a scientific or industrial process, invention, method, or the like.
the sum of the ways in which social groups provide themselves with the material objects of their civilization.
Technology is scientific method and material used to achieve a commercial or industrial objective in more easier and precise manner. Tech is short form of technology
Tech can be a person or an area. Depends on how you are using it.
A Tech or Technician, can be a person that is trained to work in a specialized technology area and can assist customers in that area or maybe be a developer of the technology in that area.
Tech can also mean just Technology - would need to ask questions of what area of Technology they are referencing.
Best of Luck!
Catherine recommends the following next steps:
Tech is a short form of Technology:
Technology is the sum of techniques, skills, methods, and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, and the like, or it can be embedded in machines to allow for operation without detailed knowledge of their workings. Systems (e. g. machines) applying technology by taking an input, changing it according to the system's use, and then producing an outcome are referred to as technology systems or technological systems.
Technology is a body of knowledge devoted to creating tools, processing actions and extracting of materials. The term ‘Technology” is wide and everyone has their own way of understanding the meaning of technology. We use technology to accomplish various tasks in our daily lives, in brief; we can describe technology as products, processes or organizations. We use technology to extend our abilities, and that makes people as the most important part of any technological system.
Technology is also an application of science to solve a problem. But what you have to know is that technology and science are different subjects which work hand-in-hand to accomplish a specific task or solve a particular problem.
We apply technology in almost everything we do in our lives, we use technology at work, we use it to , extract materials , we use technology for communication, transportation, learning, manufacturing, creating artifacts, securing data, scaling businesses and so much more. Technology is human knowledge which involves tools, materials and systems. The application of technology results in artifacts or products. If technology is well applied, it can benefit humans, but if it is wrongly applied, it can cause harm to human beings.
Many businesses are using technology to stay competitive, they create new products and services using technology, and they also use technology to deliver those products and services to their customers on time. A good example is, mobile phones companies like Apple & Samsung, these two electronics companies, use high end technology to create new smartphones and other electronic devices to stay competitive. This competitive edge is gained through employing advanced technology.
