For National Engineers Week 2016, the USC Viterbi School, National Academy of Engineering and Funny or Die imagined if the E! network - known for its 24/7, breathless coverage of the entertainment world - re-branded itself around engineering.
National Diversity Pledge
Over 148 engineering school deans signed a letter drafted by leading engineering deans in the nation under the leadership of Dean Yannis C. Yortsos for an initiative to change the conversation and enhance diversity and inclusiveness in engineering. This initiative was acknowledged by the President Obama on Aug. 4, 2015, at the first-ever White House Demo Day on inclusive entrepreneurship.
Most Female Grad Students in U.S.
At 1,408, the USC Viterbi School of Engineering has the most female graduate engineering students (master's and Ph.D.s) of any university in the nation, according to U.S. News and World Report's December 2015 rankings.
The Next MacGyver
The global competition (in partnership with the National Academy of Engineering) imagined the first great TV show with a female engineer main character. On July 28, 2015, five winners (out of nearly 2,000 entries) were paired with top Hollywood producers to inspire a new generation of engineers. Currently, winners are developing pilot screenplays - three are pitching to networks this month.
