REACH 2022 Graduate Engineering Visitation Program

About the Program

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.


 Program participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the 13 Doctoral programs and over 70 Master's programs in engineering & computer science 
  • Gain insight on the graduate application, admission and fellowship processes 
  • Interact with current graduate students, faculty, and staff
  • Find out about summer research opportunities
  • Benefit from special presentations and workshops

Flights and ground transportation to and from campus as well as hotel accommodations and meals will be hosted by The USC-Viterbi School of Engineering.
