Adobe Donates Licenses for Its Technical Communication Suite

Our department is continuing its partnership with Adobe Systems Inc. to give students and faculty in technical communication classes hands-on experience with Adobe’s industry-standard software. This partnership is made possible through Adobe’s University Outreach Program, which offers selected programs free use of the Adobe Technical Communication Suite.

The partnership between our department and Adobe began in 2015 and was recently renewed for another year.

“We are thrilled to continue working with Adobe and with Adobe’s generosity toward our program,” says Dr. David Wright, associate professor of English and technical communication at Missouri S&T. “Our students have benefited greatly from their experience with Adobe products, and we are proud to be associated with them.” 

S&T students have completed several projects for university departments and non-profit agencies during the past few years with help from Adobe software.

“Using Adobe software as a part of my course curriculum was one of the most useful learning experiences I’ve ever had,” says Rudi Starek, an undergraduate technical communication major at S&T. “I now better understand the work that goes into creating complicated design documents, and I hope to improve my own skills on Adobe software as I continue to work with the variety of programs offered.”

Priyanka Ganguly, a graduate student in technical communication at Missouri S&T, says she appreciates how user-friendly Adobe products are.

“For every Adobe product, there is a training module which helps the users perform their tasks conveniently,” Ganguly says. “I have worked on Robohelp, Captivate, and Photoshop. All of these products are extremely useful. I think it is not possible to create and edit images in other software like we can play with an image and format pictures in Photoshop. As a student, I have benefitted a lot from the Adobe products.”

Missouri S&T offers a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Graduate Certificate in Technical Communication.
