    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.
