This reminds me of the certification debate a few months ago. I don't believe there is any single way to accurately predict whether someone will be a good technical writer. But, much like the SAT predicts general aptitude and the rest is up to you regarding college, a degree in any field requiring structured thinking and communication is good to see. I would look more at philosophy and literature majors, as well as people with experience writing in the lab sciences. They have the basic skill, and the rest is a matter of experience.
