PCC's Goodman Serving Term as President
of N.C. Engineering Pathways Committee

Charles GoodmanWINTERVILLE—During their annual business meeting, members of the N.C. Two-Year College Engineering Pathways Committee (NC-TYCEP) selected Pitt Community College science instructor Charles Goodman to serve as the group’s president for the next two years.

Goodman, who has been at PCC since 2006, teaches physics and astronomy and serves as an advisor for the college’s Associate in Science (Engineering) transfer curriculum. He also teaches a course on college transfer success.

In addition to his classroom responsibilities, Goodman has been serving on the state’s Engineering Pathways group, helping develop agreements that enable engineering majors to seamlessly transfer from North Carolina community colleges to University of North Carolina institutions.

As NC-TYCEP president, Goodman will preside over the association’s meetings and prepare each meeting’s agenda. He will serve as an ex-officio member of all committees and appoint delegates as needed to affiliate organizations.

Currently, more than two dozen North Carolina community colleges, including PCC, offer an Associate in Science (Engineering) curriculum.

Through articulations developed by the Engineering Pathways group, students from those programs can move on to bachelor’s degree engineering programs at East Carolina University, N.C. A&T, N.C. State, UNC-Charlotte and Western Carolina University.

A Greenville resident since 1993, Goodman has made a number of contributions to the community in support of science education, including guest lectures, science fair judging and bringing telescopes to area stargazing events. He has been equally active on the Pitt campus and earned the PCC Men’s Resource Center’s 2015 Man of Excellence Award for serving as a role model for the college’s male students and employees.
