If you are good with technology and science, a degree in electrical engineering might be right for you. There are nine schools in Nevada that offer degrees in this field, including seven schools with Associate's degree programs. There are eight schools that offer Bachelor's degree programs, and two schools with Master's degree and PhD programs.

The first step to starting a career in electrical engineering is earning an undergraduate degree. If you live close to a technical college or want to learn more about the field, you can start with an Associate's degree. An Associate's degree is made up of 60 credits, which should take you about two years to complete.

A Bachelor's degree is a very popular choice, as it is required for licensure in Nevada. As a Bachelor's degree student, you complete 120 credits over the course of four years. You can earn your credits by taking courses like Digital Logic Design, Fundamentals of Power Systems, and Communication Systems.

If you want to have more career choices open to you, you may want to earn an advanced degree in the field. A Master's degree, which takes about two years, requires the completion of 30 credits. If you want to earn a PhD, you can plan on spending between five and seven years writing your thesis.

Although tuition costs differ from school to school, the average tuition cost in Nevada is $12,100. Your out-of-pocket costs may be lower if you attend a two-year school or public college.

The Nevada Society of Professional Engineers awards a variety of scholarships to Nevada engineering students each school year. If you are a female student, you can consider applying for a scholarship from the Society of Women Engineers. The Nevada branch of this group gives multiple scholarships each year.

After completing your engineering program, you need to earn your license from the Nevada State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors. Before you can get your license, you have to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering exam. After the board verifies your exam scores and approved your application, you can receive your license.
