Abstract

The article reports a research that reviewed the history and content of technical related subjects in order to consider the educational areas that have caused scepticism and the creation of stigma. A literary research was undertaken to identify issues. Subsequently, the authors firstly questioned the general public in order to assess their opinions; and secondly students, to achieve their academic capability and personal experiences of stigma. The stigma was found to be grounded around the achievement of practical skills which, due to the poor or limited interaction people have had during their education at a young age, was believed to encompass

Keywords
