Your College. Your Future. Take the Next Step!
When you discover Blackhawk Technical College, you are on the road to success.
As a proud member of the 16-school Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS), Blackhawk Technical College relishes its role as an innovative and productive resource for Beloit and all of south central Wisconsin.
It certainly isn’t any wonder that Beloit schools are the largest feeder system to Blackhawk. Those students, as well as students from around the BTC district in Rock and Green counties, recognize that:
- 97 percent of students were satisfied or very satisfied with their BTC education.
- 91.5 percent of area employers are satisfied or very satisfied with BTC educated employees.
- 90 percent of BTC graduates are employed within six months of completing their studies.
For more than 100 years, Blackhawk Technical College has been an economic force in the region.
As business and industry in the United States evolves in the 21st century, BTC recognizes it must not only stay abreast but stay ahead of the changes driving the American economic system.
The result is that BTC features five different campuses and more than 100 technical training options in courses that are open to 25 associate degrees, 20 technical diplomas and certificates in another 17 academic areas.
Thanks to an agreement between the WTCS and the University of Wisconsin System in June 2014, traditional academic students can take General Education credit courses at BTC that will transfer to four-year UW System schools.
Two outstanding public resources offered by Blackhawk are Business and Community Development and Continuing Education. BCD is an ally of local business, offering a wide spectrum of programs to enrich the professional skills of employees. Continuing Education is aimed at individuals looking to foster professional or personal learning in a variety of classes.
