The Capitol College campus offers impressive educational facilities, intimate classroom settings and the latest technology in engineering, computer sciences, information technologies and business programs in our labs. Our facilities serve faculty, staff and students alike, and several areas are available for public use. Here are just a few points of interest on campus:
Cyber Battle Lab
At the Cyber Battle Laboratory(CBL) various hacker attacks are simulated, detected, analyzed and defeated by Capitol students. The new lab provides a hands-on learning experience that increases the IA knowledge of undergraduate and graduate students at Capitol. Through Capitol’s outreach efforts middle and high school students from the local community, as well as area professionals have made use of the CBL’s innovative technologies.
Space Operations Institute
The Space Operations Institute(SOI), established at Capitol College in 2002, is a consortium of NASA, industry, government and education partners. At the SOI, students manage satellite operations with an educational program that prepares them for careers in all aspects of space mission operations. Having experience at SOI is like having a passport into the small, exclusive world of highly qualified aerospace professionals.
Business Resource Center
Capitol College’s Business Resource Center offers students the state-of-the-art technology they need to thrive in the global economy. With brand new Mac computers, a flat-screen television and printing capabilities, the Business Resource Center is the perfect atmosphere for technology classes, or extracurricular studying.
Electronics and Engineering Labs
In these two large laboratories, students can find test equipment, typical of what is found in industry. Sweep oscillators, function generators, spectrum analyzers, curve tracers, data communication test sets, digital testers and logic analyzers are all made available to students enrolled in classes. Open six days a week, these labs also feature a digital signal procession application and development system, a computer automated testing and prototyping center, a Motorola 68HCxx series board development system, a PLD development workstation, engineering workstations, xLink development boards and circuit simulation facilities.
The Networking Lab is the perfect forum for students to hone their technical education both during class and in their free time. In the lab, students can learn computer repair, how to design and build networks, critical infrastructure protection, and aspects of switching and routing, among other topics. Some courses are also taught in the laboratory, including various computer engineering, computer engineering technology and software engineering technology classes. The hands-on experience students gain during and after class ensures they are ready for real-world positions in the workforce. The lab is open to all students and allows for open discussions and shared learning across the curricula.
The Campus Center, located on the ground level of MA/COM Hall, is the hub of student activity on campus. It offers a variety of amenities to meet students' recreational and dining needs, including:
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Office
Lounge chairs and table seating
Ping pong and pool tables
The fitness center is a place where students can work away the stress of classes in a calm and quiet environment. Four areas comprise the new center, a small yet motivational space; a cardio area including elliptical machines, treadmills, and bicycles, a stretching and abdominals area, a weight training area with machines that target different muscle groups, and a free weights area.
Access to the gym is free to current students, based on current capacity limits and a limited hourly schedule. As the gym evolves and grows, the Office of Student Life hopes to allow faculty and staff and alumni full access to the facility.
