Studying more than engineering makes for better engineers

SCilicon Beach

Our community is unique and groundbreaking… plus we have the beach!

NAE Grand Challenges

Engineering problems exist in the real world, and our obligation is to help solve them, in real time.

Shana Douglas
B.S. Mechanical Engineering, 2018

“My passion is volunteering and inspiring the future generation to go into STEM fields. I’m so happy to be apart of a school that shares those values.”

Yannis Yortsos

“The new face of engineering is not that of Dilbert in the cartoons. It is the face of bright women and men, spanning societal, racial and ethnic divides. Diversity is not a political slogan, it is an essential ingredient for innovation.”

Tajinder Singh
M.S. Computer Science, 2016

“I have met people from all around the world, worked with them and listened to their point of view and realized how one small point can be looked at through so many different angles.”

Rhea Choudhury
B.S. Biomedical Engineering, 2019

“At USC Viterbi, I’ve already discovered a new sport, conducted engineering research abroad and explored all over LA with some of the most diverse people I’ve ever met, just in my first three semesters alone.”

Rebecca Peer
Ph.D. Environmental Engineering, 2018

“I have felt encouraged to strive for truly unique and scientifically relevant research with the support of my fellow students, my advisor, and my Engineering department.”
