College can be an exceedingly constructive time in one's life; it's a time for personal growth and development. Scholars start to learn who they are as people and learn many of the indispensable skills to be a prosperous adult. But learning isn't exclusively found in the classroom - the late nights discussing Margaret Thatcher with a schoolmate, the wild anecdote gained from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different vantage point. Therefore, attending a diverse college tremendously enhances what one gains from the time spent in college.

Mechanical Engineering Technology is a less ethnically diverse major than average*. 70% of America's Mechanical Engineering Technology majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(12%), latino students (9%), and black students (5%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is Fairleigh Dickinson University-Metropolitan Campus&nbspin Teaneck, NJ.

Second, Mechanical Engineering Technology is the the most male dominated major, with 92% of students identify as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in Green Bay, WI.

Another significant type of diversity is income diversity. Mechanical Engineering Technology is the 28th most socioeconomically diverse focus in the United States. 29% of its majors come from families that bring in below $30,000 a year, 18% are from families with $48,000 to $75,000 annual incomes, and 21% grew up in very high income families. Oregon Institute of Technology is the most financially diverse school in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall NJ is the most diverse state for Mechanical Engineering Technology. The Southwest is the most diverse region, and the American Athletic Conference is the most diverse conference.
