The mission of Capitol College is to provide practical education in engineering, computer science, information technology and business that prepares individuals for professional careers and affords them the opportunity to thrive in a changing world.
Welcome to Capitol College
As the president of Capitol College, I see the impact our hands-on education style has on our students every single day.
Whether I’m watching students defeat simulated cyber attacks in our Cyber Battle Lab, observe NASA satellites mid-flight in our Space Operations Institute, or build robots that compete in regional competitions in the Robotics Lab, I’m witnessing students who are fully committed to their education.
Our innovative learning environments ensure that students get the hands-on training they need to make a difference in the workplace from day one. Additionally, our small class sizes allow our industry-trained faculty members to work closely with students.
And don’t forget our graduate programs. Capitol College currently has students from all over the world taking classes in our seven master’s programs and doctoral program in information assurance. Because our graduate degrees are offered almost entirely online, using our synchronous online learning platform, students can take live classes anywhere Internet access is available.
I welcome you to visit our campus or take a virtual tour. Discover how Capitol College may be the perfect place for you to begin or continue your higher education.

About Capitol College
Educate. Innovate. Inspire.
Three words that capture the essence of Capitol College. And when used with the Capitol College logo, it's a brand that tells a story in 1,003 words. Combined with the recurring use of our official colors - red and black - our visual identity distinguishes Capitol as a unique institution. Capitol College is the only independent college in Maryland dedicated to engineering, computer science, information technology and business. Founded in 1927, Capitol is a regionally accredited institution that blends academic excellence with practical learning experiences and provides a hands-on education that prepares students for a range of challenging and competitive careers. The college's suburban location, halfway between Washington, DC and Baltimore, affords the college the opportunity to remain committed to its mission through collaborations with local business and government agencies. Whenever you see those three words - educate, innovate, inspire - and see our logo, be reminded of a college that blends tradition with aspiration, and has a mission and vision rooted in its history. Moreover, be reminded of the programs we offer, the people we work with, the students we teach and the businesses we develop partnerships with. The Capitol College brand is a promise that we live by - to offer a relevant education in a supportive environment for career success.
