Technical Communication

Purdue University School of Engineering and Technology

Help the world make sense by developing the skills to engineer dynamic technical communication (TCM) for the future! A degree in technical communication prepares you to articulate clearly and effectively complex technical information for a variety of audiences and users. Technical communicators use technology to create necessary resources such as user manuals, online help, websites, training materials, and specifications, among many other technical communication products.

The TCM program offers a flexible curriculum that responds to the needs of STEM employers and allows you to take classes on campus, online, or both, giving returning students the convenience they need to fit their busy lifestyles and work schedules.
