Only a limited number of highly qualified applicants are accepted to SHINE each summer. This is a non-residential program, so students will commute rather than live on campus. For students seeking an introduction to the range of college-level fields of engineering or a residential program, consider USC Viterbi School of Engineering’s 4-week summer school course – then join us in SHINE next summer.
