Chapter History

SHPE-USC, founded in 1975, is composed of undergraduate and graduate students across all engineering disciplines, class standings, and experiences. We come from many states, countries, and backgrounds, and our aspirations are just as diverse.

Our members contribute enthusiasm for the organization and embody the five pillars on which we were founded: academic excellence, professionalism, leadership, chapter development, and community outreach. They shine not only within our chapter but across campus, the community, and in the larger SHPE National organization.

We are proud to have been awarded the Viterbi KIUEL Social Organization of the year award this year and the SHPE Regional Chapter of the year in 2019. SHPE-USC prides itself in developing individuals who are always advancing and giving back to the advancement of others.
