A group G is metacyclic if it contains a cyclic normal subgroup K such that G/K is also cyclic. Metacyclic p-groups classified by different authors. King classified metacyclic p-groups. Beuerle (2005) classified all finite metacyclic p-groups. A group is called capable if it is a central factor group. The purpose of this study is to compute the epicenter of finite nonabelian metacyclic p-groups of nilpotency class two, for some small order groups, using Groups, Algorithms and Programming (GAP) software. We also determine which of these groups are capable.
