From the student-made video game console, to the eight centers of excellence and labs; our culture of innovation is deeply ingrained into all aspects of the Capitol Technology experience. Our programs integrate scientific theory with hands-on experience. Undergraduate students gain practical knowledge—so they graduate job-ready—plus they develop an enhanced sense of self and society through liberal arts courses.
Our programs are designed to support our mission:
To educate individuals for professional opportunities in engineering, computer and information sciences, and business. We provide relevant learning experiences that lead to success in the evolving global community.
The 52-acre campus, located in Laurel, Maryland, is centered in one of America’s most vibrant technology corridors between Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC. This suburban campus consists of sleek, modern buildings—the academic halls are connected by glass-enclosed pedestrian walkways—plus students enjoy free parking.
Instead of dorms, we offer students fully furnished 1,400-square-feet apartments. Each single-sex apartment has four bedrooms, one bathroom and a combined living, dining and kitchen area.
When it’s time for research, students can access all the materials in The John G. and Beverly A. Puente Library which specializes in materials that support the technical and general studies curriculum of the University, plus they can use the Maryland Digital Library and other research databases.
Unwind outside of class by visiting the Campus Center—with ping pong, pool tables, a fitness center and the MegaByte Café—or attend the barbecues, coffee houses, casino nights, spring fling and movie nights the school organizes. Students can participate in a variety of clubs: IEEE, National Society of Black Engineers, Capitol Balloon Experiment Club, Radio Club, the Society of Women Engineers and several honor societies.
In addition, in our labs students can control virtual satellites with actual spacecraft software, take part in cybersecurity challenges and competitions and much more.
