Mr. Hubert Godin has the distinction of having been both a student and teacher at Middlesex Community College, Tunxis Community College, Central Connecticut State University, and Asnuntuck Community College. So he knows both sides of the coin very, very well.
Hubert joined MxCC in 2008 as instructor of Technology Studies and Engineering Science classes, and is currently serving as coordinator for these programs. He developed the college’s Manufacturing Machine Technology program (and relevant courses). Hubert is the college representative for the College of Technology (COT), a statewide initiative that provides career pathways for students to earn certificates, associate’s degrees, and bachelor’s degrees in Engineering and Technology disciplines.
Hubert started college as a nontraditional student at MxCC. He earned his associate degree from Tunxis Community College, his bachelor’s of science degree in Industrial Technology, and his master’s of science in Industrial Technical Management from Central Connecticut State University. He later attended Asnuntuck Community College and earned a certificate in their Computer Numerical Control (CNC) precision machining program. Hubert excelled in the classroom through his strong work ethic. He graduated summa cum laude in the top ten of his graduating class at CCSU. His strong academic performance helped him start his teaching career.
Prior to his teaching career, Hubert worked for 20 years in the private sector. He worked for 12 years in manufacturing with a significant portion of this time in the Machinist and Tool & Die trades. Hubert earned his E-1 (Electrical Contractor’s) license and worked as an electrician for 8 years. As an electrician, he started his career as an instructor. He trained apprentices in the electrical trade and also taught courses at A. I. Prince Technical High School where he helped prepare electrical apprentices for the journeyman’s electrical exam. He also has taught at the Hartford Job Corps Center, where he helped prepare “at-risk” youth for entry-level manufacturing positions. Additionally, he worked at the Licensed Community Training Home teaching basic living skills to a young adult with physical and developmental disabilities.
When not in the classroom or manufacturing lab, Hubert has a variety of interests and hobbies. As a dog lover he raises and breeds champion Tibetan Terriers. He also likes camping and spending quality time with his wife, daughter, and animals.
