Best Engineering colleges in Texas

Engineers work directly with architects and owners to design HVAC systems, structural components of buildings, vehicles, and even planes. An engineer develops skills based on specialty, though most have strong foundational math, physics, and digital rendering proficiencies to excel in their role. 

Students interested in becoming engineers often choose a specialty during their bachelor’s program such as a Bachelor of Science in Structural Engineering or a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. Many Fortune companies like Texaco and BNSF hire current students to work as interns and gain exposure to the company culture before applying to full-time roles. 

Students can earn their engineering degree in statistics in-person or online, though many top-ranking universities in Texas like Rice or Texas Tech offer job placement networking for graduates that wish to pursue work locally. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects over 25,000 positions for civil engineers over the next decade.
