The Shackouls Technical Communication Program (STCP) was established in 1999 to provide writing and presenting support to all engineering departments. The only such program in Mississippi and one of few in the Southeast, we are part of a national trend toward in-house writing-presenting instruction, including engineering colleges at the University of Texas-Austin, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Carnegie-Mellon, and Stanford. Our program includes three major initiatives:


  • GE 3513 Technical Writing, a junior-senior-level technical-communication course required of all engineering undergraduates at Mississippi State

  • Writing-in-the-discipline work within the college as a whole, including seminars, workshops, and writing-assignment support in technical courses

  • A Writing Tutor Program that serves as a writing center for engineering students


This site contains many of the materials and resources we've developed for the initiatives above.
