An Overview of Clarkson's Technical Communications Program.
Barkman, Patricia R.
The technical communications program at Clarkson College (New York) offers students 23 courses in subjects ranging from interpersonal behavior to engineering and scientific report writing to computer documentation and the development of technical manuals. With the help of an advisor, each student works out a course of study appropriate to his or her career goals. The courses focus on skills in research, public speaking, graphic design and audiovisual material, listening, and, especially, writing and editing. In addition to the technical communication courses, each major chooses a professional concentration such as industrial engineering, physics, math, accounting, economics, or finance. Students may also elect to do independent study or gain work experience through a senior internship. They are also helped to prepare for the job market through a career services office. The technical communications program at Clarkson presents students with many opportunities to develop a multifaceted career. (HOD)
