Design Overview

  • Our design was in response to the design challenge offered by the Gates Foundation and TIES to develop programs that facilitate aligned and financially supported credentialed education and work experiences, for low-income young adults to engage pathways to possibility and achieve post-secondary success.

  • Our objective was to implement a program driven by industry and coordinated among the P-20 elements of the educational spectrum, that fulfills the requirements for people to enter and rise in the cyber workforce. Such requirements include skills and knowledge, practical work experience, and security clearances.

Design Overview (continued)

  • Launched in three disciplinary areas, biotechnology, cyber security, and Engineering,

  • Driven by industry needs, because these are some of the biggest pressure points on the workforce pipeline in Maryland.

  • Over 30,000 jobs are expected to come to Maryland through BRAC realignments to Fort Meade and Aberdeen, and the Cyber Command headquartered at Ft. Meade.

  • The model developed from this design strategy can then be scaled and expanded to the other regions of Maryland and their specific primary industry sectors.

Intro to capitol college
Intro to Capitol College

Maryland’s only independent college focused on Engineering, computer science, information technology and business, is one of only seven, not-for-profit, four-year higher education institutions in the state to be recognized as a Center of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Information Assurance (IA), offering programs that are jointly recognized by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Mission

The mission of Capitol College is to provide practical education in: Engineering, computer science, information technology and business that prepares individuals for professional careers and affords them the opportunity to thrive in a changing world.

Located in Laurel, Maryland (midway between Washington, DC, and Baltimore), our college is in close proximity to many government agencies and organizations focused on IA and cyber security including NSA and Fort Meade.
