Washington is well known for its tech sector, with groundbreaking companies like Microsoft founding and maintaining headquarters here

Washington is well known for its tech sector, with groundbreaking companies like Microsoft founding and maintaining headquarters here. Other notable employers in the state include Amazon.com, Zones Inc., and Expedia Inc. If you're interested in technology or a career in software or Internet companies, earning a degree in computer engineering, business, or any tech-related major can help prepare you for a career in this tech hotspot. Jobs aren't guaranteed with your degree, but you'll gain skills, experience, and knowledge that will help you get your foot in the door.

Aerospace is an important industry in the state; in fact, Washington was the country's largest exporter of aerospace products in 2010. Boeing, an international aerospace company and the largest producer of commercial and military aircraft, was founded in Washington, and though the company moved its headquarters to Chicago in 2001, it still has a strong presence in Washington with a major production facility. If you're interested in manufacturing, engineering, or physics, Washington could be a great place for a career.

The University of Washington offers courses, certificates, and graduate degrees through their online programs. Classes range from communications to health care, so students can earn credits toward a degree or take care of some prerequisites without having to set foot in a traditional classroom. Washington State University is also a good option for those interested in online colleges in Washington. The school gives students the chance to earn bachelor's and master's degrees, certificates, and even teaching endorsements online.

If public universities don't have what you're looking for, try private Washington online colleges and universities. Northwest University grants graduate degrees and certificates through online study, and Heritage University offers master's in education and English. Check with other private nonprofit schools to see if they have other programs you're interested in, or go with a for-profit online college, like Everest College, Interface College, Carrington College, or University of Phoenix.
