From what I have seen of technical communications academic programs, they seem to still be mired in what I would call "dotcom thinking." The courses seem to concentrate heavily on DTP tools and documenting software for non-technical users, which prepares students to work only in a relatively small part of the real-world profession.

certainly true, so they need to review what they should be offering.
