With technology today dominating the global economy, there is an increased call for professionals with specialized skills and knowledge in a variety of settings. Some of these areas include the pharmaceutical and medical industry, government, manufacturing, banking, and the telecommunications field. Cardeau University designs their undergraduate certificate in technical writing for students wishing to broaden their career options and writing skills. Because technical writers are crucial communicators, some of the projects they are sometimes involved in include industry analyses, corporate communications, sports manuals, online technical graphics and documentation, white papers, user guides, and instruction books.
Students require eighteen more credit hours after completing a College Success Seminar, and the courses required include Writing for the Web, Survey of Technical and Professional Document Production, and Writing for Technical Professionals. Students must also select on elective such as Seminar in Professional Writing and Introduction to Digital Imaging.
