Highlights @ Capitol Tech

Student Voice: Leader of the Astronomy Club Shares His View of the International Space Station 

International Space Station (ISS) NASA
A new student came into the Fusion Lab who was interested in everything in the lab had to offer, but he was particularly intrigued by the International Space Station (ISS) tracker display. He wasn’t sure what it was so I explained to him that it tracks the ISS in real time and that it just so happened that it was about to pass over the school in about 5 minutes. 

21st Century Astronautical Engineering Professor  

Professor Antunes and student
Modern university education features a lot of adjunct teaching (aka courses taught by part-time professors). The core debate, for those not tracking it, centers around an almost cliché question: which is better: full-time on-campus professors or working part-time adjuncts? 

Understanding the difference between Mechatronics engineering vs. mechatronics robotics engineering

mechatronics engineering vs. mechatronics robotics engineering
For students interested in pursuing a degree in mechatronics, it can be confusing trying to understand the difference between mechatronics engineering and mechatronics robotics engineering.

Memorial Day at Capitol Tech

Memorial Day is often appreciated by those without connections to members of our military as a yearly bonus day off, but Capitol Technology University has a long history of supporting military members that makes this Monday especially close to the heart of the institution.  

I Know What You Are, but What Am I?: What it Meant and Means to be a Nerd, Geek, or Techie  

Nerd, geek, techie
Only a few years ago, the words “Nerd”, “Geek”, and “Techie” were not a compliment. Popular culture has influenced early ideas of what each of these words meant and created images of what kind of person would be identified as such. Iconic shows like 1984’s Revenge of the Nerds, 1985’s The Breakfast Club, 1999’s Freaks and Geeks, 2006’s The IT Crowd, 2014’s Silicon Valley, or 2015’s Mr. Robot, have largely shaped how we think someone in each of these categories looks, acts, and is capable of. 

From Small Idea to Start-up: Tips from Successful Tech Companies

A million dollars in the tech world may seem like small change against giants like Microsoft (valued at $1 trillion) or Apple (valued at $1.3 Trillion), but for many start-ups, a $1 million company valuation is a sign that they’ve made it. Today, on National Be a Millionaire Day, we review companies that found their niche in an incredibly saturated tech market to make their mark-and their million. 

Cybersecurity breaches and their impact on corporate stock prices

Cybersecurity breaches have an impact on a company’s bottom line. But beyond the physical, staff and time costs is the impact a breach can have on stock prices.

Letter from President Sims - Moving Forward

Dr. Sims
Congratulations to everyone for a successful spring semester! While we look toward a future in which we know COVID-19 will remain a reality, we reflect on the lessons we’ve learned during the transition to online learning while we plan our safe return to campus in the fall.

Many talents, one code. Make it happen.
