Capitol Technology University

Laurel, Maryland

Capitol Technology University, a career focused university, was founded in Washington, D.C., in 1927 by Eugene H. Rietzke. A Navy veteran and radio operator, Rietzke saw the need for an advanced school that would produce talented radio and electronics technicians. As radio technology improved, new training programs and courses were quickly added. Following World War II, the university became one of the first three technical institutes accredited by the Engineers’ Council for Professional Development.  Now a fully accredited, non profit, private university located in Laurel, MD offering bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees in high demand industry areas.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Aviation Professional Pilot provides the student with the necessary knowledge and training to become an aviation professional in the diverse field of Aviation. The program addresses one of the greatest employment challenges of the 21st century - how to create enough professional pilots to fill the staggering number of jobs created in the aviation industry due to the burgeoning demand for commercial and airline pilots. The degree provides a firm foundation in flight operations, airport operations, safety, risk management, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules and regulations, aviation technologies, and piloting skills.  Graduates of the program will have the knowledge, skills, and FAA certifications necessary to be employed as a commercial pilot by airlines, governmental agencies, or corporate employers.
