The Best Spot to Study – Thanks Wallis!

Markus Astro Engineering, Markus Leave a Comment

Hi Guys, Every year it seems like I find a bunch of new study spots!  I recently have grown fond of the Wallis Annenberg building that was recently constructed.  Aside from the beautiful USC architecture expressing a more Gothic-style, the building is at the heart of the campus, making it easy to get food or as a central point to …

Networking is metting with people and discussing areas of interest to increase awareness of a field and potential career options.  Meeting and talking with someone first hand rather …

Quit and Quit Often

Markus Astro Engineering, Markus, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Hey Guys, Over my four years, I have found that there is a natural gravitation towards people who are passionate about their field of study and genuine in their endeavors.  Genuine has become more and more of a topic for me this past semester.  It is interesting to think that there are more genuinely bad people than good.  There is …

What is a KIUEL (cool) Engineer?

Betty Betty, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

My freshman year I did what many do and applied for every opportunity I saw on a flyer or facebook and I went to every club meeting that somewhat interested me. One of the few organizations I actually continued with my sophomore year is KIUEL, The Klein Institute of Undergraduate Engineering Life! I started my involvement in KIUEL by joining …

Conquering Midterm Season

Molly Molly, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Starting October means welcoming fall, the start of cooler nights, pumpkin carving… and midterms.  Midterms, as a junior, are simply another part of my classes, something that I pencil into my schedule like anything else.  Doing well on a midterm can secure your grade for the rest of the semester, which is why I now look forward to them and …

EE 150: Matlab, Coding, Compiling Oh My!

Emily Emily, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

In the life and times of a biomedical engineer, you take classes that cover multiple disciplines. Chem and bio are obvious staples of biomedical engineering, physics as well. Less well known, though is that as a biomedical engineer it’s a standard to learn a programming language called Matlab. It’s not as complicated as Java or C sharp or C++, but …

When I tell people about civil engineering, I usually end up discussing the most obvious things, such as the design of infrastructure.  But this semester, I’ve been lucky enough to expand my view of how civil engineering applies to my life in CE 473: Engineering Law, Finance, and Ethics.  The class is taught not by an engineering professor, but by a lawyer, …

Imagine making over 200 sandwiches in just 20 minutes!  This past week, my Freshman Academy Class had a seemingly simple task ahead of them.  They found out soon enough though that something that appears to be easy at first–is much more difficult on a mass production scale. The class was challenged with the assignment: optimize the process of making a PB&J sandwich.  Given …
