Georges Pelletier, Technical writer, L-3 MAS

If you love languages and science, have good writing skills and devour books as fast as a tub of ice cream, you could work in the aerospace industry as a technical writer. You’ll have to analyze different documents (specifications, technical notes and drawings) and draft manuals, guides or other texts. These clear and concise documents describe the installation, operation and maintenance of components (parts, machines, software, electronics and other subjects related to aerospace).

As Georges Pelletier, a technical writer at L-3 MAS, explains:”What makes my job so interesting is the variety of challenges that I face on a daily basis. . . . As I write project briefs and progress reports, I’m aware of every detail. I have a good view of everything that happens in the business and the innovations!”

Schooling

To become a technical writer, you need to hold a university diploma in computer science, engineering or another related field, as well as training in writing skills. Membership in a guild or professional association may be required.
