SUMMARY

Choosing to study Computer Systems Analysis is a valuable choice and typically a required first step for pupils endeavoring to enter a career as a quality assurance tester, a program analyst, or a network systems engineer. Interestingly, computer systems analysis is a very rare degree being the 203rd most popular major. Last year alone, there were 1,140 computer systems analysis graduates. In-state tuition for computer systems analysis at private colleges is, on average, 3.2 times more costly than their public rivals.

With only 67 universities offering computer systems analysis you may have limited options as to the institutions you can choose from. If you are looking to surround yourself with other computer systems analysis undergrads, consider institutions in Illinois which have the most undergraduates admitted to computer systems analysis annually. Zooming out, the best region to study computer systems analysis is in the Great Lakes region with Kent State University at Kent, DeVry University-Illinois, and DeVry University-Ohio best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the top conference to study computer systems analysis is the American Athletic Conference with University of Houston representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best college for computer systems analysis is Texas Christian University. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The objectively 'best' school does not have to be the best school for you. There are a bunch more perspectives to consider when choosing institution. External stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely affect your feelings on which university to attend. At Authority, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are intrigued by which computer systems analysis college boasts the top campus, the winner is Northern Arizona University. If, for example, you are very interested in which school has the top campus, then we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more so we can compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our comprehensive list for the universities with the best student life and, from that list, our choice for the school with the best student life for computer systems analysis is Texas Christian University. Curious why? Continue scrolling to discover more about our top choices. Some of our picks will probably surprise you.

If price is a primary deciding factor in your decisions, you might be cautious about University of Denver. University of Denver is our most expensive school for computer systems analysis, at least for out of state enrollment. That being said, we have a page for the most expensive universities that could put the price tag at University of Denver into perspective. Additionally, you may be interested to know that computer systems analysis is the 369th most expensive degree in the nation, with an average cost of $17,700. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for computer systems analysis in the nation is Colorado with tuition and fees at the main college, University of Denver, of $51,336. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the country for computer systems analysis is the Rocky Mountains region which is best demonstrated with University of Denver with a cost of $51,336, and Carroll College with a cost of $35,300.

Our cheapest region for computer systems analysis is the Southeast region which is represented by Austin Peay State University with a cost of $12,264, DeVry University-Florida with a cost of $14,912, and DeVry University-Georgia with a cost of $14,682. In better news, the most affordable school for computer systems analysis is University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez. Our full list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state learners can expect to pay around $10,500 for a degree in computer systems analysis. The price balloons by a lot to a median of $21,700 for an out-of-state public-school undergrad. Our selection for the university representing the best value for computer systems analysis: University of Denver. Here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities we believe to be the best value overall. Bear in mind, this list is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for computer systems analysis majors differ a lot, but within two years finishing the degree students will typically earn around $70,000. While there is much variation in earnings potential; top positions can bring in up to $104,600. Right out of college, the minimum earning jobs within the computer systems analysis field make $46,000, which could be worse. The highest earning graduates for computer systems analysis come from Texas Christian University and if you are looking for colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The overall diversity of computer systems analysis ranks quite high, coming within the 83rd percentile of all majors. The school with the most composite diversity for computer systems analysis is DeVry University-Illinois and here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Computer Systems Analysis is only in the 21st percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, ranking in the 87th percentile. White students compose the largest proportion, 51%, of those majoring in computer systems analysis. Additionally, 74% of undergrads seeking a computer systems analysis degree are men.

We have insufficient professors data for computer systems analysis to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. As we including information other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the school possessing the best professors for computer systems analysis is Robert Morris University. One will find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the best instructors nationwide.

Finally, the most difficult university to get into for computer systems analysis is Purdue University Northwest. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have a general list for the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, here at Authority we hope you believe that approaching the higher education world through a lens mainly derived from superlatives might create issues. We encourage you to read our other pages on individual universities and explore some of our background pages on beneficial details to think about as your school search continues.
