Viterbi students enjoy state-of-the-art laboratories, classrooms, and live Internet broadcast systems. We have 185 tenure-track faculties, with 62 endowed chairs and professorships.
The school’s unique undergraduate and graduate programs lead to the bachelor of science, master of science and doctor of philosophy degrees in engineering; extend the frontiers of engineering knowledge; stimulate and encourage in students qualities of scholarship, leadership, and character; serve the city, the state, the nation and the world by providing for the continuing education of engineers; and offer professional engineering leadership training toward the solution of community, regional, national and global problems.
The Viterbi School of Engineering (formerly the USC School of Engineering) is located at the University of Southern California in the United States. It was renamed following a $52 million donation by Andrew Viterbi, co-founder of Qualcomm Inc. The USC Viterbi School of Engineering celebrated its 100th birthday in conjunction with the university’s 125th birthday.
With over $135 million in external funding support, the school is among the nation’s highest in volume of research activity. The Viterbi School of Engineering is currently ranked No. 10 in the United States by U.S. News and World Report.
The school is headed by Dean Yannis Yortsos. Its research centers have played a major role in development of multiple technologies, including early development of the Internet when USC researcher Jonathan Postel was an editor of communications-protocol for the fledgling internet, also known as ARPANET. The school’s faculty includes Irving Reed, Leonard Adleman, Solomon W. Golomb, Barry Boehm, Clifford Newman, Richard Bellman, Lloyd Welch, Alexander Sawchuk, and George V. Chilingar.
Among the many organizations on campus, the Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering (ASBME) is an undergraduate student organization for biomedical engineering students at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. ASBME is a student run undergraduate and graduate biomedical engineering organization at USC that serves the engineering student body through academic, social, and corporate events.
Activities consist of regular meetings with guest speakers and panels, the BIOMED Research Symposium, annual Corporate Dinner and Networking Nights designed to foster relationships between graduating students and industry, and many other social, community, and corporate events.
