Tekhnikum (Russian: Техникум) is a type of vocational school in the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union,[1] as well as in modern Russia, Ukraine and some other post-Soviet states.

The term was borrowed from 19th century German education, where these kinds of school were called Technicum. [2]

In modern Russia many Tekhnikums were renamed into "Technical College","Technological College", "Technical Liceum", etc.
