La Jolla, CA and Hubballi, Karnataka, India – November 15, 2017 – Recognized as a leader in engineering education, KLE Technological University (KLE Tech) is partnering with MadCap Software to introduce the first technical writing courses available in India from a technical university. The classes will give students hands-on experience with MadCap Flare, the most advanced technical authoring and publishing solution on the market.

KLE Tech is implementing the program in two phases. In the first stage, MadCap Flare is being incorporated into the “Technical Writing for Engineers” course. An introductory elective class, it is designed to give engineering students a basic familiarity with technical writing in order to write better as individuals and enable smooth handoffs from development to the technical documentation process. In the second stage, MadCap Flare will be used in a series of classes that will enable students to earn a minor degree in Technical Writing. The minor-track classes will support those engineering students who choose to become technical writers, a good but overlooked career option for engineering graduates in India. “This roadmap,” says Dr. Ashok Shettar, Vice Chancellor of KLE Tech, “fits in perfectly with our vision of a close partnership between academia and industry, with a view to guiding our students towards enriching and fulfilling careers.”

Our goal is to help students gain familiarity with an authoring solution that allows for modern single-sourcing and multi-channel publishing for mobile devices, the web, and print, as this will significantly enhance their career prospects,” explained Suhag Shirodkar, adjunct professor at the Department of Technical Writing at KLE Technological University. “We need a platform that is nimble, responsive, and modern. MadCap Flare fits our needs perfectly, and it will be our workhorse in driving our technical writing courses.”

“KLE Tech is nationally recognized for offering highly innovative programs that empower engineering students with the skills and experience to thrive in their chosen careers. We’re thrilled to support the university in building on this success with the rollout of its technical writing program, the first of its kind in India,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. “We are committed to providing students worldwide with the technical communication tools needed to give them a competitive edge in the industry, and we continue to extend that support through our work with KLE Tech and the MadCap Scholar Program.”
