Engineering & Manufacturing

If you like to analyze and problem-solve, engineering could be a great career for you.

Factories in Texas produce everything from massive turbine engines to tiny nanochips. The state’s job growth is fueled by three sectors: computers and electronics equipment, aerospace parts, and pharmaceuticals. Leading manufacturing industries include chemicals, petroleum products and motor vehicles. And the future for manufacturing in Texas is bright. Many prominent manufacturing companies are moving to Texas because of the lower cost of living, cool cities, warm weather, a highly skilled workforce powered by TSTC, unsurpassed BBQ and, of course, football.
