One of the options to apply to at Viterbi is Undeclared Engineering. This tells us that you are interested in being an engineer but just have no idea which one sounds more interesting. This is totally fine, and kind of interested in engineering is perfect. We know that you don’t have much exposure to what engineering really is beyond an interest in math and science, and we want to give you the chance to make the right decision for you.
It is really important that if you are at all interested in engineering, but just do not want to declare a major at this point, that you choose undeclared engineering as your first choice major on the application. This means that your application will be reviewed by both the Viterbi Admissions team and the USC Admissions team. Unless you list one of the engineering majors as your first choice, we never see your application, and we want to make sure that if you want to be an engineer you can start in engineering classes right away.
