VITERBI SUMMER UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH EXPERIENCE (SURE)
One must learn, by doing the thing, for though you think you
know, you have no certainty until you try.”—Aristotle
The Viterbi School of Engineering’s summer research programs offer engineering students hands-on research experience in a wide variety of programs. Working with, and supervised by faculty members here, students from all over the world develop research skills in their field, and build important relationships that will further their academic and research careers. Outstanding undergraduate students compete for positions that enable them to spend two months in sunny Los Angeles doing individual research with professors from the Viterbi School of Engineering.
In life, as it is in learning, the value of hands-on experience cannot be underestimated. SURE also gives visiting students the chance to experience the rich and diverse culture of USC, Southern California, as well as the cultures of their fellow students from around the world. In sharing your time together here, you can learn about each other and your lives, traditions and homelands.
If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, SURE provides qualified students opportunities to show initiative and to build a solid working relationshp with the School. This research experience will be invaluable when applying for graduate programs, particularly doctoral studies.
