College is an awfully formative period of one's life; it is an opportunity for individual growth and maturation. Undergrads attempt to capture who they are and develop the must-have skills to become a thriving adult. But learning is not completely confined to a classroom - the interactions one has with their schoolmates, the nugget of wisdom received from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different stance on an issue. Therefore, attending a diverse college tremendously improves what one gains from the time spent in university.

Computer Engineering is a more popular subject among students of color than white students. 39% of the United States' Computer Engineering majors are students of other races**, followed by white students (34%), asian students (18%), and latino students (7%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is University of Miami&nbspin Coral Gables, FL.

Additionally, Computer Engineering very highly skews male, more so 94% of subjects. A touch above four in five students majoring in Computer Engineering identify as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, CA.

Another significant type of diversity is income diversity. Computer Engineering ranks around the middle of the pack for wealth diversity (59th percentile). 30% of its majors come from high income homes, 16% are from middle income homes, and 24% grew up in low income families. Vermont Technical College is the most socioeconomically diverse school in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall FL is the most diverse state for Computer Engineering. The Mid East is the most diverse region, and the Division III Independents is the most diverse conference.
