College often is an awfully productive period in one's life; it is a time for individual growth and maturation. Undergraduates attempt to find out what they want to do and cultivate many of the underlying skills to be a prosperous member of society. But growth goes far beyond a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the wild anecdote received from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different viewpoint. As such, attending a diverse college vastly enriches what you gain from your time in university.

Systems Engineering is a more racially diverse subject than average*. 52% of the nation's Systems Engineering majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(21%), latino students (12%), and asian students (10%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is Kennesaw State University located in Kennesaw, GA.

In addition, Systems Engineering significatly skews male, with a little under seven tenths of students majoring in Systems Engineering identifying as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is University of Florida in Gainesville, FL.

Another important type of diversity is socioeconomic diversity. Systems Engineering is more socioeconomically diverse than 60% of majors. 30% of its students come from homes with $110,000 plus annual incomes, 17% are from middle income families, and 22% grew up in homes that take home under $30,000 a year. University of North Carolina at Charlotte is the most economically diverse school in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall GA is the most diverse state for Systems Engineering. The Mid East is the most diverse region, and the Atlantic Sun Conference is the most diverse conference.
