Electives to Fuel your Passions

betty-2017 Betty, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Plus, Why USC Leave a Comment

One of the draws to engineering at USC is being able to take elective courses, not just “technical electives” but real electives that fuel your passions.

ENG 401: Teaching Engineering to Kids

betty-2017 Betty, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

Yes, teaching engineering to kids is actually a class you can get course credit for! Built into my major (and probably the other engineering majors) are technical electives where you can explore different engineering majors or other aspects of engineering, so I chose to take a course called teaching engineering to kids. The course is taught by Iridescent, a company …
