Electrical Engineering

Earn a bachelor of science in Electrical Engineering, be the power behind the machine.

The electrical engineering (EE) program is by far Capitol Technology University's most comprehensive. The program is a blend of theory and practice directed at engineering design, rather than research. As you progress through the program, more theoretical methods of circuit modeling and computer-aided circuit simulation tools are taught, enabling you to design, build, test and analyze sophisticated circuits and systems. You can keep your engineering education broad-based or specialize in areas such as telecommunications, digital signal processing, integrated circuit design and control theory.

Why Capitol?

Our location puts you in the heart of the action. The Baltimore/ Washington D.C. area has one of the largest concentrations of high-tech companies, defense contractors, and government agencies in the United States, making it easier to find internships and high-paying jobs.

Our classes are taught by working professionals. A field like electrical engineering is constantly evolving, which makes our faculty extremely valuable since many are experts in the field.

Our motto, ‘find a way, or make one’ delivers job ready skills. Hands on classes, combined with extracurricular clubs like; League of Legends, the robotics club, and the gaming club help you hone the skills needed to excel in the workplace.

Support for you

Whatever type of resource you need –a way to improve your math skills, a place to exercise, help with a job search or a disability – we have facilities and personnel ready to help.

Career opportunities

  • We offer the Capitol Commitment because we are positive you’ll get a job offer within 90 days of commencement. (See program details).
  • Last year, of the graduates who reported their employment data, 82 percent of our students had a job offer (or chose to go on to graduate school) within 90 days of commencement at competitive national salaries.
  • Electrical Engineering is a well-paying field; the average salary for an electrical engineer is between $60,000 and $150,000 per year.

Key Faculty

Program Chair: Dr. Nayef Abu-Ageel

Dr. Nayef Abu-Ageel is the Chair of the Electrical Engineering Department at Capitol Technology University. Dr. Abu-Ageel has over fifteen years of academic and industrial experience in research, teaching, and entrepreneurship. He holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University. His MS and BS in Electrical Engineering are from Yarmouk University and Jordan University of Science & Technology respectively.

From 2013 to 2015, he led the process for developing learning outcomes assessment, curriculum development, and implementation of continuous improvement processes to meet the requirements of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) for two undergraduate engineering programs at Al Ain University of Science & Technology. He previously taught in the electrical and computer engineering department at Michigan State University, and from 2000 to 2001, he was a manager at a Massachusetts high tech startup company.

Most recently, Dr. Abu-Ageel served as an adjunct professor in the Department of Bioengineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at George Mason University. He taught “Introduction to Engineering” to honor engineering students and “Introduction to Circuits and Electronics” to bioengineering students. The innovative teaching practices he introduced include integrating entrepreneurship into class material as well as involving engineering students with the local community through designing and delivering engineering mini-workshops to local K-12 students.

Dr. Abu-Ageel’s research focused on the development of optoelectronic devices for telecom and display applications. The impact of his research on projection displays has been demonstrated through: (i) the development of a solid-state light source technology for projection displays and its demonstration in the highly selective Innovation-Zone exhibit at Display Week in 2012, and (ii) the development of an ultra-compact laser-based pico-projector architecture and the presentation of research results in a “Late News” session at the Society for Information Display International Symposium in 2012.
