The USC Viterbi School of Engineering boasts an excellent faculty of growing strength. More than thirty of its 169 members, many of whom were widely sought by top universities, joined USC in the last three years.
Viterbi's faculty roster includes 34 members of the National Academy of Engineering, 55 winners of Presidential Young Investigator and CAREER awards, 13 winners of PECASE Early Career awards, and the 2003 winner of the Association for Computing's Turing Prize, often described as the "Nobel Prize in computing." More than a third of the faculty have been elected fellows of their respective professional societies.
Increasing the diversity of its faculty is an important goal of the Viterbi School. Significantly contributing to this effort is the Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) Program
