The new technologies at industries improve products and services processes, needing capacitated professionals. In turn, the Technology Higher Courses (CSTs, in Portuguese), search to qualify their students to work at this Market, following the inovation dinamics. Technology demands at a region can variate according with it social, economic characteristics and regional particularities. To CSTs, this juncture of factors can create a misalignment between the content taught at student’s formation and the content applied at the Market professional practices. Based on theses, this research has the objective of analyze and identify the CSTs factors that may improve the adherence of new Technologies to the student’s vocational education. As analysis object was selected the Industrial Mechatronics CST from Itu – SP, located at Sorocaba’s Metropolitan Area. At the collect and analysis of the data was used quantitative and qualitative approach and the method of integrated single case study with single analysis unity and multiple evidences source. Among the main results, it is the identification of external and internal factors to the researched course, which interfere at the adherence of technology demands to the student’s formation. Through these factors was possible to evaluate the relationship between the CSTs academic environment and the technology institutions from the course region. Among the main barriers at adherence of new Technologies to the course, it is worth noting the lack of an academic directory responsible for communication between the course and the technology institutions. Generally was not identified the effective communication or articulation between the researched course and the regional technology companies, proposing the discussion and development of an internal system in the CSTs that can evaluate this relationship , based on the evaluation model of this research.
