Viterbi School representatives will be at each of the above locations (except where noted *) [UPDATE – We are coming to Sacramento! Sorry for the late notice, but one of our representatives will be on hand for the Sacramento program to talk with all the engineering students!]   to speak with you about what life is like as an engineering student at USC.  We can answer your questions about the curriculum, studying more than engineering (double majors and minors), overseas programs, undergraduate research, having a social life and whatever else you can ask.

As these are university-run programs, representatives from other academic units (e.g. Marshall School of Business, Dornsife College of Letters, Arts & Sciences, etc) along with USC Admission & Financial Aid counselors will also be on hand.

Contact us if you need more info.  We can’t wait to see you at each of the above locations!
