These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Systems Engineering majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Technology Design is very distinctive for
majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Critical Thinking, and Active Listening are the three most important skills for people in the field.
