Of course! Apart from all the opportunities across USC, Viterbi also has its own overseas program. These are great ways to explore new cities, immerse yourself in different cultures, and learn about engineering from a worldwide perspective.

You can do research as early as a freshman! It’s as easy as finding a project and topic you’re interested in, and reaching out to a professor on campus. Research is a great way to explore new topics outside the classroom.

“I work in the USC Biomechanics Lab as an undergraduate researcher; the junction of sports performance analysis, engineering and preventative medicine fascinates me, and the work excites me every day!”
– Rhea, Biomedical Engineering ’19
