Program Educational Objectives

The Pro­gram Ed­u­ca­tional Ob­jec­tives are broad state­ments that de­scribe what grad­u­ates are ex­pected to accomplish within three to five years of grad­u­a­tion. They are con­sis­tent with the mis­sion of Capitol Technology Uni­ver­sity.

The Pro­gram Ed­u­ca­tional Ob­jec­tives of each of our pro­gram were de­vel­oped in con­sul­ta­tion with the pro­gram con­stituen­cies: stu­dents, alumni, em­ploy­ers, fac­ulty and program’s Ad­vi­sory Board.  

Within three to five years of graduation, TET alumni will:

  • Be highly sought and will be recognized as having expertise in their field.
  • Demonstrate a lifelong commitment to expanding their professional expertise.
  • Be effective communicators, effective team members, or leaders.
  • Continue to demonstrate character and values by making ethical decisions throughout their professional careers.
  • Strive for the betterment of society by pursuing their vocation.
