The classes of the Technical Communication program include Technical Editing. The projects of the program often involve collaboration and peer review.

In the Editing and Publication class, the promt was to supply constructive copyedits for a report. It involved applying the IEEE style guide to a document, leaving comments and queries for the author, and writing a letter of transmittal. This project built the skills of editing and communicating professionally.

The prompt for this comprehensive editing project was to rewrite the residents' agreement for a public housing residence. It involved performing a rhetorical analysis of the situation and audience and developing a style sheet for the larger document. This task built the skills of comprehensive editing, professional communication, and working with writers.
