Study in USC’s World-Classroom in Fall 2022 with ENGR 345: Principles and Practices of Global Innovation!

The iPodia program is offering ENGR 345: Principles and Practices of Global Innovation this fall semester. This course offers the unique experience of “global learning from local campuses” using a “learners-without-borders” platform to study together with classmates from top universities of the iPodia Alliance on four continents. Students will follow the “learning-through-diversity” pedagogy to interact with cross-cultural peers to study the dynamic lifecycle of technology innovation in a competitive global market. A special peer-to-peer (P2P) system and a hybrid learning environment jointly built in MS Teams with Microsoft as a strategic partner will be used in this innovative education program.

ENGR 345 is a 3-unit course co-taught by USC professors and a global faculty team. The course is open to students in all undergraduate majors.

In additional to working with global classmates to learn how to leverage cultural diversity to inspire technology innovations, iPodia students will visit an overseas campus to collaborate with global peers face-to-face (if university travel regulations permit). Selected USC undergraduate students’ overseas travel costs will be supported by the Viterbi iPodia Program.
