Overview

Graduate Certificate in Technical Communication (Optional Co-op)

Technical communicators are vital to companies that employ exceptional writers, editors, researchers, and information designers to make technical information accessible. 

This Ontario College Graduate Certificate will provide you with the skills to design, create, illustrate, and produce content while using authoring tools to manage technical documents on multiple platforms. 

You will have access to cutting-edge software and study at Conestoga’s newly renovated Waterloo campus in the heart of what CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis) research has identified as Canada’s fastest-growing tech sector. 

The optional co-op stream includes one co-op work term.
