Technical and Professional
The Technical and Professional Communication
(TPC) degree prepares students for a career
involving a combination of writing, organizing and
communicating information. Nearly every industry
needs employees who can communicate technical
and professional information effectively to its
customers and clients. With this degree, students
learn to edit technical manuals, understand the
elements of writing technical documents and develop
project planning skills. In addition, they analyze
technical journals, books, magazines and speeches.
All TPC students identify a content specialty
concentration, a 21-credit grouping of courses
that builds on their interest in a specific career area.
While many TPC students enter the program with an
associate degree in a technical area, many develop
their technical specialty based on an established area
of expertise in the field of technical communication.
A wide variety of content specialty concentrations
are possible, including but not limited to electronics,
automotive technology, computer information
systems, plastics technology, medical writing,
applied mathematics, visual communication
and applied biology.
