Faculty — Engineering, Berkshire Community College

About Berkshire Community College:

Berkshire Community College (BCC) has the distinction of being the first community college established in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Nestled in the scenic Berkshire hills, our nearly 2,000 students have access to a wide range of career and transfer programs on our newly-renovated campus. Occupying a magnificent 180-acre property, just minutes from downtown Pittsfield, Massachusetts, BCC provides students from a broad range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds with an intimate learning environment with small class sizes and much opportunity for interaction with faculty.  Berkshire County was home to many forward-thinking historic figures, W.E.B. DuBois, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth (Mumbet) Freeman to name a few, all of whom were pioneers of social justice. The Berkshires contain both rural and urban elements, combining a beautiful natural environment with world class museums and other cultural opportunities. Pittsfield and Berkshire County as a whole continue to evolve, with immigrants from over 70 countries now calling the Berkshires their home. BCC seeks to recruit faculty members who embrace, as well as demonstrate, a commitment to diversity and inclusion and whose experiences and perspectives model the opportunities and success derived from a college education.
