I’ve been lucky to spend the past three years at my happiest place on earth, USC. And even through it seems like forever ago, that means it’s only been three short years since I was staring at a pile of acceptance packages from schools all over the country, completely unsure of how I was expected to decide. I was 17, …

Industrial Engineering with Computer Science

I like to think of Industrial and Systems Engineering as applied problem solving. The foundation of my classes is math like probability, statistics, and linear algebra which we then use for operations research to solve complex problems. These problems can vary to economic to resource allocation problems which really allow for a diverse application. Can't believe this year is coming to an …

Hi guys!
