International Engineers Turn To USC'S DEN@Viterbi For Career Development

No. 1 Ranked Online Graduate Engineering Program Provides the Tools to Develop the Global Engineer

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Foreign applications to U.S. graduate institutions have increased year over year, continuing the growth of international students seeking graduate education stateside, according to a 2013 survey by the Council of Graduate Schools. Now global professionals are turning to the University of Southern California's Distance Education Network ( DEN@Viterbi) - U.S. News & World Report's No. 1 ranked online graduate engineering program in the nation, in growing numbers.

"Today's engineers are part of an international marketplace and are challenged to keep pace with industry innovation," said Binh Tran, DEN@Viterbi Executive Director. "Moreover, multinational companies need to develop their teams' respective capabilities while they are deployed abroad. DEN@Viterbi provides the online education for engineering professionals to develop new skills and compete in the global marketplace from almost any location in the world."

In order to better meet the development needs of remote engineers, especially those in distant countries, DEN@Viterbi strategically partners with the world's top engineering industries and corporations. In turn, this has allowed DEN@Viterbi to deliver the caliber of education for employees at top tier organizations, including Google, Chevron and The Boeing Company among many others.

One such example of global collaboration is the partnership between DEN@Viterbi and the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC). The Viterbi School and its distinguished faculty provide KOC engineers with an advanced online education program incorporating new petroleum technologies. This program allows KOC employees to develop critical capabilities on the ground in Kuwaiti oilfields while continuing to service their customers.

KOC professionals, along with other DEN@Viterbi professional students, can stream lectures in real-time and even participate in live class discussions through USC's multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art classroom studios, which unveiled numerous upgrades at the start of the 2013 school year. Microphones, high-definition cameras, behind-the-scenes production team, and nearly round-the-clock tech support ensure that students 'attending' lectures abroad feel like they are sitting right there in the classroom.

Additionally, where available, DEN@Viterbi works with USC's international offices and affiliates in Brazil, Mexico, Korea, India, Taiwan and China to provide services and resources to prospective and current students in foreign countries.

Students from more than 15 different countries have successfully completed the program, spanning a wide-range of situations from the ice fields of Antarctica, to active combat zones in Afghanistan, to the Caribbean islands and Australia. As a leader in online education, DEN@Viterbi continues to secure new international ties to expand its global footprint and open more opportunities for new the generation of engineers.
