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.
OK, I'll add my alma mater to the list: North Carolina State University. It
has an MS in Technical Communication that gives a good grounding in the basics
of theory and application for technical communication. It is slowly building
up its specialties, such as online documentation and human-computer
I graduated from the program last May, taking classes mainly at night, one at a
time, while I worked full time. Its a very solid program, but perhaps not as
technologically advanced as some of these others are sounding. Brad
Mehlenbacher, one of the key experts in the online arena, is one of the
professors there and directed my thesis.
It has undergraduate (BA and BS) degrees in writing, but it is not geared
towards technical writing per se.
