Students who earn the TCM Certificate develop the core knowledge, skills, and professional practices necessary for entry-level technical communicators. They refine their abilities to gather and transform technical knowledge for a variety of audiences as they design, develop, and edit effective, usable publications using sound communication principles and current technology.
Students complete 13 hours of required courses and 6 hours of selected courses that prepare them for professional practice in technical communication and related careers.
The undergraduate Certificate in Technical Communication (TCM) is offered by the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI. Any student formally admitted to IUPUI may pursue the TCM Certificate.
