About Texas Colleges and Universities

Texas has long been known as a melting pot because of the various cultures within the state. It also has a variety of natural environments from plains to forests and deserts. Texas is the second largest state, both by population and area, due to its livability and economic opportunities. The largest metropolitan area is the Dallas-Ft. Worth-Arlington metro encompassing those three immense cities. Aside from this area, Texas is also home to the fourth largest city in the country, Houston, which is known as a hub for aerospace and energy development as well as a sizable city in San Antonio.

Texas has a wide range of universities to choose from when deciding to attend college. The public university system in Texas' endowment is second only to that of Harvard University, which funds the rapid growth of the school network. Some of the top employers in the state include Lockheed Martin, American Airlines, and Texas Health Resources. Students earning degrees in aerospace engineering, petroleum engineering, or education in Texas' colleges will definitely see substantial earning power boosts.
