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.
