Office of the President

Welcome from President Thomas Eckert

First and foremost, know that Blackhawk Technical College exists to serve you. Our goal is to help you fulfill your dreams and reach a better place in your life.  This educational quest is a partnership formed of your hard work and effort and our experience and expertise.  Together, we can truly transform your life.

Blackhawk Technical College prides itself on providing the finest in educational programming and top-notch services to aid you in this quest.  Every year we conduct a survey of our current students to learn what they think of the education and services we provide.  One of the questions we ask is, “Would you recommend BTC to potential students?”  Ninety-seven percent of the students said “yes.”  When we ask employers if they are satisfied with our graduates and would hire more BTC students, 99% said “yes.”  These numbers speak for themselves.

Blackhawk Technical College has achieved such positive results for several reasons.  First, we are a community of students, faculty, and staff engaged in the purposeful pursuit of learning.  We form close-knit teams of students and faculty in our programs, most students graduating with the same classmates with whom they began.  Second, we have a solid group of experienced professionals in our Student Services division who strive to provide the finest quality support possible.  Third, we work diligently with area employers and businesses to make sure our programs and courses are current, our equipment up to the quality standards of the industry, and we know what future trends are emerging.  Fourth, although we are growing, our faculty and staff have been able to maintain the one-to-one attention that is the hallmark and advantage of a small campus.

Our goal is your success, now and in the future.  So, welcome again to Blackhawk Technical College. Your future starts here! 

Tom Eckert, Ed.D.
