Career Colleges and Vocational Schools in Texas

 

Trade Schools in Texas

With its powerful combination of a large, diverse population and abundant natural resources, Texas lays claim to one of the biggest economies in the U.S., even the world. The state's economy is defined principally by its vast petroleum reserves. While these continue to be a major contributor to Texas's wealth, other forms of energy production have taken root here as well, such as wind and solar power, natural gas and biofuels.

The strength of the state's economy, however, lies in its diversification. In addition to energy and mining, Texas has a strong showing in agriculture (with more farms and acreage than anywhere else in the U.S.), commerce (thanks to the state government's relatively hands-off business approach) and high-tech professions. This last industry holds a myriad of job opportunities for students of trade schools in Texas, including careers in computer science, information technology and defense manufacturing.

Trade schools in Texas could pay off in a big way

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Texas' mean annual wage for all occupations was $41,100 as of mid-2009. The Census Bureau estimates the total Texas population at 25.15 million and its median household income at $50,049. What you can expect to earn as a graduate of a vocational program depends, of course, on your area of expertise. Specific salary information for common careers may be accessed via the BLS.

All the basic ingredients for a successful economy come together in Texas, making this a destination state for job hunters of many different skill types. Develop your own skill set at one of the trade schools in Texas, and take full advantage of what the Lone Star State has to offer.
