UNLV Schools Circus

A recently launched entertainment engineering and design program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas will give students school credit for running off and joining the circus.

The program aims to combine emerging technologies in the entertainment industry with engineering fundamentals and students will learn hands-on skills such as metalworking and woodworking.

Internships will reportedly be offered at production companies like Cirque du Soleil, where students will gain experience with stages and pulley systems.
