Our Engineers become teachers through a great outreach program (and they get course credit!)

By August 23, 2013No Comments

Prospective students often ask me about community service opportunities here at USC and the Viterbi School.  Prior to enrolling here at USC, our students were all very involved in their communities back home (as I imagine you might be), and that shouldnt stop just because of college.

In addition to a number of great service opportunities available at USC (JEP, Volunteer Center, Student Organizations such as Troy Camp, Engineers without Borders…. and so many more, I don’t have room to list!), taking the course Engineers as Teachers course is just one option.

The Engineers as Teachers course is a very cool class that allows engineering students at USC to teach engineering concepts to local kids AND receive credit for their efforts.  Not a bad way to spend a semester!
