What is ITP?

The Information Technology Program (ITP) is an academic program at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering whose mission is to provide students, faculty, and staff with high-quality instruction in applied technology. In addition to practical, hands-on experience, students will engage in theoretical discussions of current trends, applications, and developments in information technology.

Students can choose from a wide range of electives and 13 minor and specialization programs. Additionally, ITP coordinates with departments at the Viterbi School of Engineering and the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences to offer majors in Data Science (BA) and Intelligence and Cyber Operations (BA).
