It has been observed that the Department of the Graphic Design Technology lacks a wide range of immerging Technologies linked to the Graphic Design Programme. Consequently, students lack of knowledge about most of these new technologies with the current trends is making them fall behind. The study sought to find out the influence of today's technology on the Graphic Design programme being pursued by Higher National Diploma (HND) students at the Department of Graphic Design Technology. This is against the background that technology forms an integral part of the Graphic Design programme in the 21st century. An in-depth review of related literature from various authors have been discussed concerning the study. Through non-probability purpose sampling, an aggregate of 128 students and 6 teaching staff were selected for the study. In terms of the research design the qualitative approach was adopted for the study. The methodology employed for the study included participant observation and a questionnaire to reveal key findings for the study. That was complemented with proper structured and semi-structured interview techniques to beseech views from respective respondents for practical analysis. Consequently, the findings from the data revealed that technology had had some level of influence on the Graphic Design programme. Based on the findings, the researchers have made appropriate recommendations to help include the contemporary trends in the technology for the Graphic Design programme to prepare students adequately with the requisite hands-on training as the Graphic Design industry in Ghana and beyond demands. However, the importance and the practices cannot be overemphasized.
