Maryland Colleges and Universities


Colleges and Universities in Maryland

Maryland might be small, but it has a big presence, which is why Maryland colleges and universities can be a great fit for aspiring college students. Its land area is just over 12,000 square miles, but it's home to more than 5.7 million people--more than a third of whom have at least a bachelor's degree--and a higher-than-average median household income of $69,272 a year. Economically, Maryland is a powerhouse in health care, renewable energy, aerospace and defense; prospective students have 400 research centers and 60 Maryland universities and colleges to choose from. Recreational opportunities abound here too, thanks to three professional sports teams, 31 miles of Atlantic coastline, great urban centers like Baltimore's Inner Harbor and National Aquarium, as well as close proximity to Washington, D.C.


Maryland universities could bring big things

According to the Milken Institute, Maryland is the second-best state overall for science and technology assets. From information technology to aerospace, cyber security, renewable energy, defense and health care, jobs in science and technology exist throughout Maryland. Ten percent of the state's jobs are in the technology sector. Maryland is home to major employers like Northrup Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Verizon, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and Johns Hopkins Hospital. And thanks to plentiful coal, wind, solar and natural gas resources, as well as a groundbreaking energy agenda, the energy sector is also powering job growth. Finance also thrives here, at companies such as Bank of America, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. And manufacturing is a mainstay, at companies like Black & Decker and Hewlett-Packard. Here's a small sample of jobs in Maryland along with their 2010 mean earned wages:

  1. Aerospace engineers: $117,160
  2. Computer support specialists: $53,400
  3. Computer systems analysts: $88,460
  4. Electrical and electronics engineering technicians: $64,790
  5. Financial managers: $106,130
  6. Physicians and surgeons: $165, 880

With so many big things in a small package, it's no wonder the Maryland can be a land of opportunity for college students.
