I can't speak for U.S. writers. Actually, I can't even speak
for other Canadian writers, but I had just one "technical writing"
course among all the math and electronics theory and circuit
design and such. In fact, I had more classes on drafting (ok,
it was two semesters versus just the one for the writing...).
The writing was just teknuk'l righting for engineers, and
dealt more with doing good reports and proposals. For those of
us who had a few English credits under our belts, the writing
course was more like "job-specific style coaching".

But then, there probably wasn't a tech-writing program
in those ancient times, anyway.
