TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
In addition to the PhD programs you mentioned, there are PhD programs in
technical communication at Texas Tech University, Iowa State, Michigan
Tech, New Mexico State University, the University of Minnesota, and Purdue.
You can find the Web page links to several of these programs through the
ATTW web site at http://english.ttu.edu/ATTW/
ATTW is Association of Teachers of Technical Writing.
