About Technical writing

How can we efficiently transfer knowledge? This course covers the base principles of technical writing. In hands-on sessions, students learn how to write technical documentation. We also show which tools and document models can support this writing process. This course is organised in close cooperation with the company Flow.

This course’s main objective is to offer students the skills:

  • to write clear and efficient technical documentation and reports;
  • to write documents that meet the requirements of the target audience;
  • to use document models to support structured writing (eg. DITA Darwin Information Typing Architecture)
  • to use software (e.g. Oxygen) to write technical documentation
