College can be a particularly poignant period in one's life; it is an occasion for personal growth and evolution. Students continue to discover who they are and develop many of the underlying skills to be a halcyon adult. But growth isn't completely confined to a classroom environment - the late nights discussing Duchamp with a peer, the wild anecdote gained from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different way of viewing the world. As such, a diverse student population greatly improves what one gains from the time spent at college.

Manufacturing Engineering is a slightly more racially diverse focus than average*. 59% of the US' Manufacturing Engineering majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(17%), latino students (11%), and asian students (8%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is California State University-Northridge&nbspin Northridge, CA.

Second, Manufacturing Engineering is the the 10th most male dominated subject, with 87% of students identify as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is California State University-Northridge in Northridge, CA.

Another significant type of diversity is income diversity. Manufacturing Engineering is more socioeconomically diverse than 73% of programs. 29% of its majors come from homes who take home less than $30,000 a year, 16% are from households with $30,000 to $48,000 annual incomes, and 23% grew up in families with $110,000 plus annual incomes. Georgia Southern University is the most fiscally diverse institution in the top 100.
