PG in Technical Communications now in India

The Writers Block (TWB) has announced the launch of India's first professional post graduate course in Technical Communications. The program is in response to the growing need for quality Technical Communicators by the industry, since technology reliance and quality of communication are key factors driving any business today. The program also fills in the gap that the university set up has failed to plug in. In countries like US, UK, and Australia, Technical Communication is a preferred academic and career option but the trend is picking up in India now.

The program is a one year course and is divided into three semesters. There are only 25 seats for the PGDTC program and TWB provides assured job letters on admission for a minimum salary of Rs.3.8 lakhs p.a. The admission is through a written test and a personal interview. This is the first of its kind diploma program in the country and has a strong accent on industry internships and placements.
