March 4, 2020
Capitol Technology University, established in 1927 and located in Laurel, Maryland, was announced as the winner of the prestigious SC Media Award for Best Cybersecurity Higher Education Program on February 25, 2020.
SC Media, a company dedicated to cybersecurity since 1989, cited Capitol’s numerous cybersecurity degrees, dedication to the employability of students, innovative programs, hands-on teaching methods, and deeply rooted relationships with government entities as some of the reasons the university stood out as the winner.
“Capitol is honored to be recognized with this award, especially as a small, private, non-profit STEM institution known predominantly by employers, such as the DoD, NSA, Lockheed Martin, and Raytheon,” said Dr. Bradford Sims, President of Capitol. “Our cybersecurity faculty has worked diligently to intertwine their experiences working as experts in the field and the latest technology into the cybersecurity program to graduate technically advanced and innovative students who embody Capitol’s motto of “’find a way or make one.’”
The university continually strengthens its reputation as a consistent supplier of qualified employees by graduating students such as Glenn Andal, a Cyber and Information Security alumni who now works as Senior Cybersecurity Engineer at MITRE.
