CommencementGraduation 2011 2011

This past Saturday, the Capitol community congratulated the class of 2011 during the Commencement ceremony. Three associate's degrees, 46 bachelor's degrees and 137 master's degrees were awarded to Capitol scholars.

NASA engineer Julio Marius gave the Commencement address, congratulating the graduates on their achievements and challenging them to continue striving for success.

"First you set your goals, then you set your objectives. Today you're meeting those objectives," Marius said. "Now the challenge starts. Where do you go from here?"

During Commencement, various awards and scholarships were presented, including: the Avrum Gudelsky Memorial Scholarship to Robert Binick, the Marilyn and Seymour Levenson Memorial Award to Cory Heiges, the Student Leadership Award to Justin Gensel, and the Distinguished Student Service Award to Nina Acree and Ross Asato.
Sign up for new MS in Astronautical LibraryEngineering degree 

If you're looking to further your education, or enhance your career in the aerospace industry, Capitol's new Master of Science in Astronautical Engineering might be the perfect fit!

The master's in astronautical engineering will focus on project management, remote sensing, systems engineering, satellite operations and mission planning. Rather than focus on just the theoretical aspects of the subject, classes and projects will feature hands-on learning, and provide the experience necessary for continued career growth and success.

Because of the focus on systems engineering and satellite operations, graduates will be prepared for leadership roles in all phases of a satellite mission design, planning and operations. Learn more about the MSAE program.
