Technology education such as Bachelor degrees and Diploma certificates in Information Technology, Computers and Electronics Engineering requires both a theoretical component, and a practical component. There are a number of issues related to the practical component that a university needs to address, when delivering a technology or a computer related course, these include but are not limited to students' basic computer skills, practical entrance requirements, the ability for a university to conduct practical examinations and students' ability to access a computer at home or university. This paper explores and compares the practicality of teaching technology courses in South-East Asia, Africa and Australia.
