Why Tech Comm?
WRITE. DESIGN. CODE. GET PAID.
The Department of Technical Communication emphasizes evidence-based approaches to preparing students with the technical communication skills required in modern workplaces: writing, designing, and coding. We offer graduate and undergraduate degrees and certificates. Courses are taught by an internationally recognized faculty whose research is at the forefront of the field. Students have leadership opportunities through teaching assistant positions, lab tutor positions in our Tech Comm Lab, and involvement in our student organization (ETC). We facilitate connections among faculty, students, and practitioners through client-sponsored course projects, internships, regular networking events, and our industry-led Advisory Board.
