Our commitment to excellence is exhibited in the quality of our programs and services led by an outstanding team of faculty and staff who are focused on preparing you for the future. Recent renovations at the Center for Transportation Studies, the Health Sciences and Student Success wings at Central Campus, and at the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center in Milton, combined with the investment in state-of-the-art equipment, places Blackhawk Technical College second to none. In addition, the Monroe Campus and the Beloit Center provide services and programs that are innovative and focused on service to our community. In my opinion, you will not find a better college to begin your journey to success.
