Capitol Tech Opportunities
Here are some of the ways that we prepare and connect you with the field of critical infrastructure.
Critical Infrastructure Center (CIC)
Capitol Tech offers an education centralized on how to protect the 16 sectors of critical infrastructure, which the U.S. government designated as vital to the day-to-day operations of the U.S. These sectors need cybersecurity and other forms of protection so that we can maintain our daily lives. From the most basic aspects of life — having clean air to breathe and water to drink — to the more complex — coordinating airplane traffic and securing nuclear reactors, life as we know it depends on these sectors.
America’s Best Cybersecurity Program
Capitol Technology University is honored to receive the prestigious SC Media 2020 Award for Best Cybersecurity Higher Education Program. Formed in 1989, SC Media is highly regarded in cybersecurity circles for its long dedication to the industry. They cite Capitol Tech’s numerous undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees, dedication to the employability of students, innovative programs, hands-on teaching methods and deeply rooted relationships with government agencies as reasons why the university stands out among other cybersecurity education programs.
Digital Forensics Lab
Today, the use of malicious software and viruses exceeds the likelihood of human attacks on critical infrastructure, which is why it is vital that we are ready to defend our most important systems. In our Digital Forensics Lab, you will learn the science behind recovering digital evidence and data from mobile devices and other hardware used in infrastructure management but vulnerable to cyberattacks. You will put classroom knowledge to the test as you evaluate the security aspects of malware, telematics, IoT, and operational infrastructure.
Washington, D.C. - Technology Hub
Home to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), a United States federal agency under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the D.C. area is not only the nation’s technology hub, but a prime target of critical infrastructure attacks. Earning your degree and working in the D.C. area will put you among the top professionals chosen to protect our nation from critical infrastructure threats.
