College often is an extremely formative period of one's life; it's a time for individual progress and evolution. Undergraduates start to capture what they can be and build the needed skills to be a prosperous member of society. But growth goes beyond a classroom environment - the discussions which one has with her schoolmates, the nugget of wisdom gained from an old professor, the exposure to a different frame of mind. As such, attending a diverse college greatly enhances what one gains from the time spent at university.

Electrical and Electronics Engineering is a pretty ethnically diverse focus. It has the 9th largest share of students of other races**. 45% of the US' Electrical and Electronics Engineering majors are students of other races**, followed by white students (30%), asian students (15%), and latino students (7%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is California State University-Long Beach located in Long Beach, CA.

Secondly, Electrical and Electronics Engineering skews very heavily male, more so 94% of subjects. Around 80% of students majoring in Electrical and Electronics Engineering identify as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Franklin W Olin College of Engineering in Needham, MA.

Another important type of diversity is socioeconomic diversity. Sadly, Electrical and Electronics Engineering ranks in the bottom 34% of programs financial diversity. 31% of its majors come from households with $110,000 plus annual incomes, 16% are from mid-income households, and 24% grew up in low income homes. The University of Texas at Dallas has the most economically diverse students in the top 100.
