Program Overview

In a job-market where the pay for technology-related careers is fast on the rise and organizations are requiring more experienced individuals to fill these positions, the education received through this program will give graduates a competitive edge, teaching them how to create new networks or move existing ones to platforms with a TCP/IP basis. Organizations need individuals to oversee platforms where separate data, voice, and video networks combine, which is the direction internet engineering is heading. Focusing on aspects such as network reliability, survivability, and the ability to recover from an outage are in-demand skills that graduates from the Master of Science in Internet Engineering program will leave with.

This MS is an online program aimed primarily at students with a bachelor's degree or experience in areas such as network administration, engineering, or management, though students from all paths of education may still approach it. A regionally accredited institution, Capitol College provides practical knowledge and relevant hands-on learning to provide graduates with the skills necessary to successfully compete in the information technology industry. The flexibility provided by Capitol’s LIVE! platform, their online teaching and content host, allows working students the ability to learn anywhere at their own pace while still receiving quality instruction and feedback.

Required classes include the Principles of Designing and Engineering Computer Networks, Network Architecture Convergence using Wireless Technology, and Multimedia and Web Casting, to name just a few. Students will also receive instruction in collaborating technologies and aspects and issues in modern intellectual property. Network security is another important subject taught through this master’s program. The Capstone course tests students’ ability to fulfill all aspects of a research and development project, from proposal to execution. This includes creating an abstract, a schedule, describing the labor mix, a list of proposed subcontracts, and finally the development of a full-cost proposal.

When applying to this program, students are recommended to have a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology or a related field, completed with at least a 3.0 overall GPA, though it is not required for admission. Applicants must have knowledge of object-oriented programming and a recommended knowledge of C++ or Java.

    School Overview

    Capitol Radio Engineering Institute and its founder, Eugene H. Rietzke, initially established a radio and electronics training program, in Washington DC, that taught students through correspondence. However, the program became so successful that by 1932, resident laboratories allowed students to learn  on-campus. Growth continued throughout the 1950s and 60s, as the school relocated and changed names. Studies expanded to include engineering and electronics, and the school began awarding associate’s degrees followed by bachelor’s and then master’s degrees. By the latter part of the century, the institute adopted a new title, Capitol College, and relocated to its final destination in Laurel, Maryland.

    Today, this private, not-for-profit institution is located on a 52-acre campus where students can pursue undergraduate and graduate programs of study, along with the completion of certificates and professional development coursework. Capitol Technology University houses an online network that supports most of its graduate programs, in addition to select undergraduate coursework. Ten different certificate programs, requiring completion of four courses, are offered via accelerated eight-week formats or 16-week on-campus options. Courses are taught in accelerated eight-week and 16-week formats through blended asynchronous assignments and synchronous real-time live audio feeds. Professionals can also complete any of the six online post-baccalaureate certificate programs.
