REACH Graduate Engineering Webinar Series

About the Program

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, REACH 2020 has gone virtual!

Through REACH, under-represented engineering achievers get firsthand exposure to exciting research opportunities, world-class faculty, rich academic programs, stellar student services and mentoring resources.

In fulfilling our mission, the Viterbi School actively seeks engineering achievers from all backgrounds into its graduate degree programs, particularly students historically under-represented in the field of engineering, including African-Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans.


Please take a moment to review and RSVP to the REACH sessions below. Program participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the 13 Doctoral programs and over 60 Master's programs at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering 
  • Gain insight on the graduate application, admission and fellowship processes at USC
  • Virtually interact with current graduate students, faculty, and staff in the Viterbi School
