One of everyone’s biggest concerns when coming to college is what to do when you graduate! Four years is a long time to devote to school, and making sure that it is all worthwhile is very important. Luckily, Viterbi has its own career services center which I have been fully utilize in the past few weeks!
A few months ago, I introduced you all to USC TAMID, an Israeli consulting group here on campus (See my previous blog: USC TAMID: A Consulting Organization). At the time, I had just started consulting for SpaceIL, a non-profit Israeli space company working to put a rover on the moon to win the $20 million Google Lunar X-prize. As I began gathering data on SpaceIL and its competitors, I had no inkling of SpaceIL’s potential, and I am now blown away by SpaceIL’s ability to inspire people, both Israelis non-Israelis.
Hey there!This past week I competed in the Associated Schools of Construction National Competition in Sparks, Nevada! It was a long week full of hard work but I had a great time and learned so much! This competition is part of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) SPARKS student organization group on campus. There were eight teams that competed from USC totally over 50 students! Each team competed in a different competition such as Preconstruction, Heavy Civil, Commercial, LEED and many more. At the competition there was over 1200 participants from all over the US ranging from students to faculty and even industry members – it was pretty awesome! Although the object of the competition is hard to explain, the best I can relate it to is a case study for civil engineers.
Everyone decided to take some time this week to describe their majors in their own words. I struggled with this topic for a while, since Chemical Engineering is such a broad field, and there’s so much that you can do with a Chemical Engineering degree.
Hey everyone! Happy Friday! I have had quite the full week with career events and class assignments, but now it’s time to quick back and relax a little bit. I thought I would take a minute to give you all an idea about what Industrial and Systems Engineering is all about and why I love it!
Astronautical Engineering constitutes everything outside of the Earth’s atmosphere where as Aerospace Engineering is more involved with things within the Earth’s atmosphere. However, the disciplines are still closely linked in industry and coursework. Astronautical Engineering really is Rocket Science!
I hope you had a restful weekend! Mine was fantastic. I got a lot of sleep which was amazing, and I went to the USC vs. Stanford game which was arguably the most exciting football game I’ve attended in my life! I was so glad USC pulled out the win there at the end. It was definitely a nail-biter. I also went to the first two home men’s basketball games of the season last week! I love basketball so it was really fun to see the team play with our new men’s basketball head coach, Andy Enfield. You’ll definitely catch me at plenty more basketball games this year, especially since football season is already almost over!
First just want to mention how incredibly excited I am that we beat Stanford this weekend!! It was hands down the most exciting game ever, and the spirit and energy were absolutely amazing. Coming off that victory, I have a busy and exciting week ahead!
