Scientific & Technology Communication

Technical writers combine a love for technology and writing with a desire to help others learn. WCC offers an Associate in Applied Science in Scientific and Technical Communication. The Scientific and Technical Communication program attracts students who want careers as technical writers and others whose jobs require advanced writing skills, like those employed in engineering, marketing, grant writing, or web design.

In this two-year associate degree program, students develop an instruction manual from beginning to end one semester and learn to develop an online help system another semester.

The job market for technical writers continues to expand. In 2000, the average annual salary for technical writers was $45,050, according to the Technical Communicator's Salary Survey. Academic counselors can provide more information about the associate degree program.
