A Five-year expansion plan at Capitol Technology University in South Laurel will be set in motion with a spring groundbreaking to accommodate the school's growing student population and learning environments.
Founded in 1927 as a training institute in Washington, D.C., president Michael Wood said the university moved to its campus off Springfield Road in the early 1980s. Certificates and degree programs offer undergraduate and graduate studies in engineering, information and computer sciences and business.
Students work closely with and are often hired at NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center and NSA, Wood said, both within 10 miles of the campus.
Total enrollment remains under 1,000 students, but is expected to increase by double digits in the next few years. Wood said on-campus housing is available for 200 students, while an additional 80 students are housed off-campus at the Towers at University Town Center in Hyattsville.
