Nevada, the Silver State, is known for its largest city, Las Vegas. However, Nevada is also known for its breathtaking, natural sights, such as the Lake Tahoe region and the Spring Mountain Range. The resort industry is the main economic sector of the state, with most firms in Las Vegas, Reno, Laughlin, and the Lake Tahoe area.

Engineering Education in Nevada

Although Nevada has a strong resort and recreation industry, the natural wealth and geographic size of the state allows for many engineering investments, whether for the U.S. military or for the strong mining industry. Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno is the only Nevada community college that offers certificate and associate's programs in engineering.

Three other four-year schools in the state offer certificate and associate's programs in engineering, as well as bachelor's degrees: the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, Great Basin College in Elko, and Western Nevada College in Carson City. The University of Nevada system, which includes the Las Vegas and the Reno campus, both offer undergraduate and graduate programs in engineering.
