Campus Degree Options in Nevada (NV)


Work in Cutting-Edge Tech with Nevada Online and Campus Degrees

Nevada, nicknamed The Silver State, is more than a silver lining: Nevada is gold. Nevada thrives on its diversity and prides itself on its cultural, arts, and entertainment options. From the twinkling lights of Las Vegas and Reno to the wide open spaces underneath the endless desert sky, there's something for everyone here.

Major industries in Nevada include clean energy, manufacturing, business and financial services, and biotechnology. The state's forward-thinking legislation and tax laws encourage growth, and a broad range of career options exists for individuals exploring the Nevada job market.

The Nevada Job Market

According to information from the Nevada Commission on Economic Development, clean energy is the fastest growing industry in Nevada. The state's plentiful natural resources, high-tech companies, and research centers support opportunities in this sector. Nevada has an assertive renewable portfolio standard that requires all public utilities to generate 25 percent of their electricity from renewable energy resources by 2025, with at least 6 percent from solar energy through 2016-2025. According to the latest statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median wage for workers in Nevada energy careers was $58,970 in 2007.

Nevada Careers: Education Is Important

Because more than 20 percent of Nevada's residents hold a bachelor's degree or higher, education is an important factor in the state's job market. There are approximately 20 colleges in Nevada, ranging from technical schools to community colleges to universities to research schools, so students have lots of options for Nevada degrees. Information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests that long-term, on-the-job training is essential for careers in Nevada's growing clean energy industry, but those who have worked in traditional power industries will find their skills are transferable.
