Principled instruction and appropriate combination of science and technology in technical/vocational schools have a crucial role in industrial boom and job opportunity creation of the country. In this regard, the compatibility of syllabuses of technical/vocational courses with the needs of the industry seems crucial. In the current study, the compatibility of the syllabus of wooden cabinet-making major with the needs of the industry was investigated. With this end in view, five major and specific courses were chosen: “Technical drawing of wooden cabinet”, “Wood products technology” , “Mobile and stationary machines”, “The process of project implementation” and “Making wooden cabinets”. The population included teachers of cabinet making technical/vocational schools and wood artisans in Khorasan Razavi Province. A researcher-made questionnaire was used for collecting data. Fifty questionnaires were distributed among teachers based on census sampling and 250 questionnaires were distributed among artisans based on random sampling. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the gathered data. The results of data analysis showed that the compatibility of the wooden cabinet-making syllabus with the needs of the industry in Khorasan Razavi is above the mean. Therefore, it can be concluded that the curriculum of the wooden cabinet-making has met the needs of the industry up to a satisfactory extent.
