The generosity of generations of Trojans has enabled us to create an environment of exploration and innovation here at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. Today your support will help us continue our legacy. We invite you to join us in creating a better world. To learn more, please watch the video below.

The USC Viterbi School of Engineering is entering one of the most exciting chapters in its history. Building on over a century of innovation in research and education, the school is sharpening its upward trajectory.

No profession unleashes the spirit of innovation like engineering. In every age, engineers have responded to the challenges of the day, producing previously undreamed advances in a wide range of areas: shelter, food production, water treatment, electrification, communications and transportation technologies.

The notion of engineering as a creative, empowering force in society permeates the philosophy of our school. It drives the entrepreneurial spirit of our students, faculty and staff.

It is our highest aspiration at USC Viterbi to lead the way in responding to the new challenges facing our global society, to open new horizons for the benefit of mankind and to shape the next big innovation.

To make that aspiration a reality, we have embarked on a fundraising initiative called Creating the World That Never Was. We will raise $500 million to support transformative faculty and students, and to provide an environment that fosters the free, diverse and unencumbered research and testing of new ideas.

We are counting on USC Viterbi engineers and their imaginations to help overcome the challenges of the 21st century. We are counting on you to provide the resources that will help them succeed.
