Class of 2015
Hey guys! My name is Sam Kaplan. I’m a Junior here at USC majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Minoring in Cinematic Arts. I’m originally from Orlando, Florida, so making the choice to come all the way to Los Angeles for college was not exactly easy. Throughout my time here at USC I’ve been able to explore my interests within and beyond engineering, picking up a Minor in Cinematic Arts and getting involved in a number of student organizations outside of Viterbi, including a social sorority, a professional fraternity, and Hillel. Within the Viterbi School of Engineering I am involved in Undergraduate Research in a Mechanical Engineering laboratory, where I design structures to be used for microcombustion. Beyond that, for the past two summers, I was able to secure internships at Walt Disney World in the Environmental Engineering and Mechanical Engineering departments!
