Technology is paving the way for us, but who is paving the way for the technology - future technocrats. The initiation into the scientific arena was a small step for man but a giant leap for mankind. The arrival of science has altered the life of man and also enriched him with the knowledge that technology can empower man but he must learn to use it for the good of humanity. With the advent of technology that world has shrunk and come closer. The myriad forms of the technology, which are evidently adopted by the individuals in their day-to-day lives, express the need for its further development and dissemination. Mobile technology, internet technology and DTH have become a way of our lives and future technocrats quintessentially need to come up with ways to develop it for the overall growth of our country. The future technocrat is synonymous with the future of technology and hence their role cannot be doubted in this scenario. The objective of this study was to identify and assess the perception of young technocrats on technology use and its dissemination. It is expected that the findings will throw light on the roles of technocrats for designing and developing technologies which are aimed at larger societal welfare. The study will also help in improvising the present curriculum of technical colleges by bridging the gap between humanity and technology dissemination. Our study may also impact the current and future government policies related to the above mentioned issues.
