Capitol Technology University's engineering programs rank high with U.S. News and World Report.

Capitol's online engineering master's degree program is one of the few programs in the United States designed for practitioners rather than analysts.

As a student, you will learn how to design, manufacture and deliver a product that meets these standards. And as a graduate, you will be skilled at designing, simulating, testing and manufacturing electrical systems. If you're looking for the advanced knowledge and skills needed to design, manufacture, test and bring to market your ideas, this degree is for you.
