We explore which engineering disciplines are most effective at attracting undergraduates from various race and gender groups at matriculation and graduation. Women and men choose different disciplines within engineering at matriculation, Industrial Engineering is notable for attracting women and men, and the largest disciplines, Electrical and Mechanical, have the largest enrollment gender gap.
