  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Mon, Aug 05, 2019

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    Workshops & Infosessions

    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS juniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

  • Repeating EventSix Sigma Black Belt

    Mon, Aug 05, 2019 @ 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM

    Executive Education

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Abstract: Week 1: June 4-7, 2019
    Week 2: July 15-19, 2019
    Week 3: August 5-9, 2019
    9am - 5pm

    Learn the advanced problem-solving skills you need to implement the principles, practices, and techniques of Six Sigma to maximize performance and cost reductions in your organization. During this three-week practitioner course, you will learn how to measure a process, analyze the results, develop process improvements, and quantify the resulting savings. You will be required to complete a project demonstrating mastery of appropriate analytical methods and pass an examination to earn Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate. This practitioner course for Six Sigma implementation provides extensive coverage of the Six Sigma process, as well as intensive exposure to the key analytical tools associated with Six Sigma, including project management, team skills, cost analysis, FMEA, basic statistics, inferential statistics, sampling, goodness of fit testing, regression and correlation analysis, reliability, design of experiments, statistical process control, measurement systems analysis, and simulation. Computer applications are emphasized.

    NOTE: Participants must provide a windows based computer running Microsoft Office to the seminar.

    Talk Title: Functional Real-time MRI of the Upper Airway

    Series: Medical Imaging Seminar Series

    Abstract: MRI is arguably the most promising imaging modality for evaluating upper airway dynamics as it is non-invasive and involves no ionizing radiation. For the past decade, real-time MRI has been extensively used with significant improvement on the spatiotemporal resolution to time-resolve the dynamics of the upper airway during natural speech production and sleep. Existing techniques focus on tracking tissue surfaces, such as vocal track shaping and airway cross-section contour. However, they lack the ability to measure the function of the upper airway, such as the internal muscle movement and the physiological variation across different airway sites.

    This talk will introduce new techniques and novel experiment design compatible with real-time MRI techniques in order to reveal the internal muscle motion and physiological traits of the upper airway. We leverage the maturing fast scan methods to provide adequate spatiotemporal resolution, while propose novel techniques and experiment design to go beyond fast. With the proposed methods, we can set our eyes further than the anatomical structures and onto the even more interesting yet intrinsically complex functions of the upper airway.

    Biography: Wayne Chen is a Ph.D. candidate working under the supervision of Prof. Krishna Nayak at the Magnetic Resonance Engineering Laboratory. His research focuses on MR pulse sequence development and reconstruction for real-time imaging of the upper airway.
