My Major at USC: Aerospace Engineering
My Favorite Classes
The infamous Mechops class… While it’s one of the most time consuming classes at USC, it honestly makes you such a better engineer. We learn Mechanical, Optical, and electrical engineering and how to form experiments, reports, and presentations from our data!
THE BEST Introduction to Aerospace Engineering! I absolutely loved this intro class. We learned the basics of flight mechanics, Solidworks, and got to build a glider!
