Viterbi/Dornsife Machine Shop

The shop is here to provide machine work for research in the Viterbi School of Engineering and in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. We have a 5-man crew with over 100-years combined experience. You can expect us to be able to fabricate most any mechanical part desired out of most materials except glass.

The shop has both cnc mills and lathes and can assist in sourcing out work for machinery we don’t have or processes we don’t do. We also keep a basic supply of metals and plastics.

Our shop rate is only $40/hour. A valid USC Workday worktag (including cost center and PPGG codes) is required for payment.

Location: KAP B-1B; basement of Kaprielian Hall, left as you exit the elevator

Business hours: 6:30-2:30 M-F

For more information please contact Seth Wieman, foreman, at 213-740-6111 or wieman@usc.edu.

To submit a work request ticket and reserve a spot in our work queue, please email a description of your project, the name of the project PI, and a valid USC Workday worktag (including cost center and PPGG codes) to machineshop@usc.edu.
