U.S. New and World Report Ranks Capitol

This past week, Capitol received news that its online graduate engineering program was ranked No. 43 in the country in the category "Student Services and Technology," by U.S. News and World Report.


The rankings for top online graduate engineering programs took into account the following factors: 24/7 live tech support, live tutoring, smartphone applications and live-streaming video. Capitol's graduate program outranked many large schools nationwide, and was one of just three Maryland schools to make the list

"We are pleased to be recognized for our innovation in education technology and our leadership in providing services to our students, both hallmarks of a Capitol higher education," Dr. Michael T. Wood, president, said.
