A New Mindset
In a technology-driven economy, the discipline of technical communication (tech comm) is essential.Tech comm involves the delivery of clear, consistent, and factual information — often stemming from complex concepts — for safe and efficient use and effective comprehension by users.
From finding information and navigating on your smartphone to training and instructional materials that help you be productive in your job, tech comm is pervasive.
Taking The Lead
While tech comm applies to a wide variety of audiences in any industry, in New York the leading industries not only drive New York state's economy; they are leading on a national and global scale.
From financial services, life sciences, health care, and professional services to retail trade, educational services, government and technology, tech comm takes the lead in collaborating to drive industries forward, innovate, and build thriving and connected communities.
