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

    Wed, Nov 20, 2019

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    Workshops & Infosessions

    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS seniors 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!

  • Thales Tech Challenge is Tabling in the Engineering Quad

    Wed, Nov 20, 2019 @ 12:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Workshops & Infosessions

    Stop by our table in the Engineering Quad to learn all about the THALES TECH CHALLENGE!!!

    The Thales Tech Challenge is a competition for all students to see who can come up with the most breakthrough and disruptive technology of the future. We are looking for revolutionary ideas in our different markets which include; Aerospace, Space, Ground Transportation, Identity & Security, and Defense & Security.

    Our prize list includes; electric scooter, drone, apple watch, & more. The grand prize is a fully-paid (yes - even your food is paid!) internship at the Thales Digital in Paris France! Everyone on the team gets the same prize, you don-t have to share. Additional prizes include; electric scooter, drone, apple watch, apple airpods & more!

    To enter, students will form a team of 2 to 5 people and submit their ideas and proposal in stage 1. The top five teams per country will be selected to move to stage 2 where they build out a pitch on their idea to present to the business. Students will we paired up with mentors from the business in stage 2.

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Nov 20, 2019 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Eliot Fried, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University(OIST)

    Talk Title: Closed Nonorientable Ribbons from Unstretchable Helicoidal Material Surfaces

    Abstract: A material surface is unstretchable as a two-dimensional physical object if the intrinsic length between each pair of its material points cannot change during any deformation. Intuitively, such a surface can bend and twist but its material filaments can never extend or contract. The constraint that models this intense kinematic idealization must affirm that no surface strain can be developed in any possible deformation, and it must allow for the existence of constraint reactions and the consequential development of related tractions in any deformation. This talk will focus on a theory for determining the shape of closed ribbons made from bending and twisting a unstretchable helicoidal material surface. Surprising connections to the kinematics of underconstrained linkages, the dynamics of closed vortex filaments, and the chemistry of cyclic hydocarbon compounds will be discussed.

    Biography: Eliot Fried earned his Ph.D. in Applied Mechanics from the California Institute of Technology in 1991. He received a National Science Foundation Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowship, a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, and a National Science Foundation Research Initiation Award. Currently he heads the Mathematics, Mechanics, and Materials Unit. Previously, at McGill University, he was a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and the Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Interfacial and Defect Mechanics. Before that he held tenured positions in the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Department of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science at Washington University in St. Louis. At Illinois, he was a Fellow of the Center of Advanced Study and was awarded a Critical Research Initiative Grant. In his research, he uses statistical and continuum mechanics and thermodynamics, geometry, asymptotic analysis, bifurcation theory, and scientific computing to study fundamental and applied problems involving novel material systems and processes.
