My Major: Electrical Engineering

Pedro Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

Hey everyone! Ironically enough, “simply” choosing your major can be the most painstaking part of your college application process. It was for me and I remember applying to a few different schools with different, science and math related majors because of my indecisiveness. I am just extremely glad I applied to Viterbi with the intent to study Electrical Engineering. I …

My Major: Computer Engineering/Computer Science

rob Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

Here at USC, I study Computer Engineering/Computer Science (CECS), a major that entails both software (Computer Science) and hardware (Electrical Engineering classes focusing on Digital Logic/Computer Architecture).  The is that a CECS can go into either hardware or software, and that it is important to know the needs of a software designer to be an effective hardware engineer and vice-versa. …

My Major: Biomedical Engineering (Electrical Emphasis)

steve Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

I blogged about Biomedical Engineering last year, so check that out for a quick primer on how I felt about it then. Honestly not much has changed since then, but I have definitely gained some perspective I’d like to share. Since writing that blog, I did a summer internship in Information Systems at Amgen, started my senior design project, attended …

Choosing Classes: A Balancing Act

emily-2013 Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Today I registered for my last semester of classes at USC (pause for nostalgic moment). My remaining required classes for my major are Spacecraft Mission Design, and Spacecraft Dynamics, 2 classes that will be filled with other smart people passionate about Astronautics. However, to graduate, I need 2 more classes that fulfill the engineering degree’s Technical Electives. Tech Electives are …

Coming off of my first year at USC and a summer internship at Northrop Grumman, I definitely feel far more prepared and motivated to perform well academically. I gained skills that I can apply into my classes such as time management and handling stress. Also, since I was a software engineering intern I decided to pick up a minor in …

Hey everyone! Welcome back! It sure was a great summer, interning at Amgen and going back home to Wisconsin a few times! Now we’re back to school and honestly it feels great! I can’t believe I’m already a senior! I did decide to stick around next year and get my Masters in one extra year as part of Viterbi’s Progressive …

Electrical Engineering in My Own Words!

leah Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

When you’re in college, people always ask you what your major is. And especially in engineering — which is a lot of work, not going to lie — your major defines a lot of what you spend your time doing. So it’s a good thing that I love Electrical Engineering, since I spend a lot of time doing it! Everyone …

Electrical Engineering in my own words

So let me begin by stating that I have written about this topic in the past here. Much of that information still applies so please check out my old post before continuing reading! Most of the information from before is applicable, except I have new classes in addition to continuing my student involvements. I am now taking 4 classes, each …

My Favorite Student Involvement: The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)

ryan-2012 Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

This week all of us VSAs will be discussing our favorite student involvements here at USC. Although I am involved with many orgs (HKN, Freshman Academy Coach, Engineering 101 TA, Tau Kappa Epsilon (Social Fraternity), USC Gamers Network, and many more), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (or IEEE for short) is definitely my favorite student involvement. I first became involved …

Hardest Class vs. Favorite Class

lydia-2012 Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

As a Senior, I’ve taken a wide range of classes. From grueling prerequisite math and science classes like Differential Equations and Physics, to more fun elective classes like Intro to Adobe Photoshop and the Film Symposium, I’ve covered quite a few subject areas. Overall, I’ve really been enjoying my upper division Industrial & Systems Engineering classes, but in order to take those …

Hardest Class vs. Favorite Class

My senior year is finally here. Wow. It seems like college has just flown by whenever I think about it–maybe it’s because I’m consistently so busy with everything here at Viterbi, maybe I have too much fun, maybe I don’t think long enough… I don’t really know. Regardless, I do know that the experience has been amazing and I look …
