Electrical Engineers Do It All

No other discipline is as broad or influences as wide a range of technologies as Electrical Engineering. More than just circuit and chip design, Electrical Engineers at USC lead the way in fields such as Machine Learning, Brain Imaging, Quantum Technology, and Speech and Language Processing.

The research we do has a profound impact on everything from medicine, to energy efficiency, to communication and cellular technology – and so much more. In our department you’ll find a place to nurture your creativity, work with amazing new tools, and be exposed to exciting technology.
