Albuquerque Vocational Schools, Trade Schools and Technical Schools

Perhaps best known for the magnificent hot air balloons on display every year at the Albuquerque International Balloon Festival, Albuquerque is also gaining a reputation as a place for high-tech companies to do business, and the fact that Albuquerque lies at the center of the flourishing New Mexico Technology Corridor perhaps best illustrates this. According to Albuquerque Economic Development, several exciting industries currently excel in the city, including:

  • Aerospace and aviation
  • Solar technology and renewable energy
  • Microsystems and nanotechnology
  • Semiconductors and electronics
  • Directed energy and optics

Albuquerque's population of 555,417 grew by almost 10,000 people from 2010 to 2012, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This vibrant and growing city may be a great place for graduates of Albuquerque trade and technical schools to explore career options, including those serving the industries noted above.

While the 2013 median hourly wage for New Mexico was $15.14, the number for Albuquerque was slightly higher at $15.84, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS.gov).
