Employers in this sector with headquarters in Texas include many from the Fortune 500 list …

The oil and gas industry is one of the biggest and most lucrative in Texas' diverse economy. Employers in this sector with headquarters in Texas include many from the Fortune 500 list, such as Exxon Mobil, ConocoPhillips, Valero Energy, Marathon Oil, and Halliburton. To work in oil and gas, a college degree or professional certification is useful, though it won't guarantee you a job. Courses at Texas online colleges and universities in math, science, and computers will be most beneficial for those working in the field who have to be skilled in instrumentation and computers.

Another major industry in the state is aeronautics, a good career choice for anyone interested in science and engineering. You could work for NASA in Houston; Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, the second largest airport in the nation; or any of the major airlines that are headquartered in the state. Your interests could also take you in the direction of defense contractors, like Lockheed Martin, Bell Helicopter, and Boeing. Employees in this industry need a strong background in physics and other sciences, so look into Texas online colleges or traditional colleges that offer degrees in these subjects.

If you're interested in public online colleges in Texas, you have a wealth of choices. Texas Tech University offers bachelor's degrees (and minors) all the way up to doctoral degrees and graduate certificates online. Students can study various sciences, engineering, and education, or receive a bachelor's in university studies.

The University of Texas offers a variety of courses and programs through its UT Online Consortium that can be completed wholly online. They are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The schools in the UT system offer degrees at the bachelor's, graduate, and certificate levels. Check out the programs through the other public university systems, too: Texas A&M University, University of Houston, University of North Texas, and Texas State University.

There are also many choices for private online colleges in Texas, both for-profit and not-for-profit. Many traditional colleges offer programs online, like Abilene Christian University, St. Mary's University, and Howard Payne University, just to name a few. For-profit colleges like Everest College, Texas School of Business, and Kaplan College are also good options for students who want the convenience and flexibility of earning a degree remotely.
