I like Capital College because resources available and the education I can receive here is something that most colleges and universities don't offer. Capital Technology University is an unknown treasure that when found can help you reach your dreams in life. Capital Tech is a place where I can be comfortable embracing my geek in me. Capital Tech offers programs that caught my attention for example, Mobile Computing and Game Programming and Software Engineering. Game programming is something I have done in the past and I enjoyed it but to find out I can do that as a major is something that I know most colleges don't offer. Capital Tech also offers a wide range of internships such as, Department of Defense (DoD),National Security Agency (NSA), and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) just to name a few but being able to be offered these internships is something that I know can help propel my career.
Review Capitol Technology University
The academics at the university is mostly towards cyber security, computer science, engineering, aerospace, and business. The professors and teachers for those academics are really good. One of the professors really helps the newcomers to any class he teaches and breaks it down for you. The learning center is a perfect place to go to if your struggling really bad in one of your classes.

The campus is really small, but doesn't have a lot of things to do unless an event is going on. Students can live in the towers that is shared between other universities like college park and Bowie near the Metro. A shuttle does travel between those two places to drop off students who have classes. There's no major parties going on campus and sports teams we have that play seriously. The campus have a lot of geeks and nerds that is into computers, video games, and anime.

Finally, the financial aid office will help anyway they can to help your tuition and make sure you can come to Capitol.
Despite being kind of unheard of outside STEM communities, Capitol is well respected by employers. A significant amount students get internships from government departments or major government contractors( DOD, NASA, Lockheed Martin).

Many students have jobs waiting before they graduate. A Lot of graduates work for the government directly or indirectly. The rest are spread out among telecommunications, computer networking, cyber security and power distribution companies. Our alumni association is pretty strong, They donate a lot of scholarship money.
