The Viterbi Student Entrepreneurship Education (VSEE) program teaches entrepreneurial skills to all first year engineering students during two-week sessions in all sections of ENGR 102: Engineering Freshman Academy during the fall semester.

Students learn about value propositions, customer discovery, and the lean canvas business model. Each group of approximately three students creates a solution to a problem and pitches it to the rest of the class. A winning group for each section is chosen. Each member of the winning teams will receive an Amazon gift card for $50 at the end of the fall semester.


Looking for VSEE Instructors

We need graduate students with experience in engineering and entrepreneurship to lead the VSEE sessions during ENGR 102. You will be given curriculum and trained at the beginning of the fall semester. In the past, we have mainly hired MBA students with an engineering background. If you are interested, please apply! The pay rate is $25 an hour.

During the 2020 fall semester, all courses will be online using a platform such as Zoom. You must have a stable internet connection to be able to lead the sessions. You also must reside in the United States in order to be employed by USC.
