Intelligence and Security Studies
Capitol Tech Opportunities
Here are some of the ways that we prepare and connect you with the field of intelligence and security studies.
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.
Washington, D.C. – Our Nation’s Intelligence and Security Hub
Washington, D.C. is home to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the federal department responsible for our nation’s public security, managing anti-terrorism, border security, immigration and customs, cyber security, and disaster prevention. One of its many divisions, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), recruits top professionals to protect our nation from cyber threats. The DMV area is also home to many other top cyber agencies and companies, like the U.S. Cyber Command, the National Security Agency, the Defense Information Systems Agency, Pentagon, CIA and hundreds of government contractors, and private sector positions
Defeat simulated cyberattacks in our Cyber Lab. This lab has an advisory board with members from corporations such as Lockheed Martin and SAIC, as well as other universities such as Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and the University of Maryland.
Center for Cybersecurity Research and Analysis (CCRA)
Enhancing the security of physical and cyber infrastructures across the nation requires ongoing training. The CCRA serves as the university hub for training, research, analysis, and programming in cybersecurity. Here, you will learn to defeat simulated cyberattacks, land an internship where you can put your skills to work and prepare for the workforce, publish a scholarly article addressing an existing challenge in the field, and much more.
Digital Forensics Lab
Learn how to recover digital evidence or data from mobile devices under forensically-sound conditions. You’ll put classroom knowledge to work as you evaluate malware and the security aspects of telematics, Internet of Things (IoT), and critical infrastructure.
Excellence in Cyber Defense
The National Security Agency and Department of Defense have designated Capitol Technology University as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense. We were honored to have a communications team from the NSA come to campus and produce this video explaining the benefits of our award-winning program.
