Academic writing is "...usually written in an impersonal and dispassionate tone, targeted for a critical and informed audience, based on closely investigated knowledge, and intended to reinforce or challenge concepts or arguments." 

Technical writing is a form of technical communication used in a variety of technical and occupational fields, such as computer hardware and software, engineering, chemistry, aeronautics and astronautics, robotics, finance, consumer electronics, and biotechnology.

NOTE: If you are pursuing academic or serious nonfiction writing as a self-directed learner (SDL), you should be aware that most references to these topic on the web refer specifically to classroom writing projects. Students do, indeed, need some instruction for passing their courses. Writing for class credit, however, is an artificial situation that calls for rules and and techniques that are often meaningless for academic/nonfiction writing in the "real" world. Just be aware of this, and adjust your learning accordingly.
