Our Technical Communicator (TC) Specialized Program was Accredited

Our Technical Communicator (TC) specialized program, which consists of courses offered at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Department of Computer Science and Engineering was partially accredited by the Japan Technical Communicators Association (a public incorporated foundation comprised of technical communication specialists) on February 28, 2017. The TC program is composed of several fields of study and the table below shows which courses correspond to each field. In order to be certified as having completed the TC program, students need to earn 18 credits or more through the courses listed while also earning the required number of credits in each field. However, these credits must have been earned from courses taken in AY2017 or after. Regarding the field of "TC Fundamentals", since there is no corresponding course at our university, students are required to take an intensive course to be organized by the Japan Technical Communicators Association.
