The USC Stevens Institute for Innovation is a university-wide resource in the Office of the Provost designed to harness and advance creative thinking and breakthrough research at USC for the benefit of society. The USC Stevens Institute identifies, nurtures, protects and transfers the most exciting innovations from USC to the market, and, in turn, provides a central connection for industry seeking cutting-edge innovations in which to invest. From the biosciences and technology to music and cinematic arts, the USC Stevens Institute connects faculty, students and the business community to create an environment for stimulating and inspiring innovation and innovators.
USC has many existing programs and courses spanning engineering, music, cinematic arts, fine arts, medicine and business that teach innovation. One of the goals of the USC Stevens Institute is to identify, nurture and promote these courses across USC. Engineers and science students may be particularly interested in the undergraduate minor and a graduate certificate in engineering technology commercialization.

“Research universities in the 21st century not only will be judged by the quality of their research and the quality of their students, but also by how successful they are in transferring innovation into the marketplace in order to meet societal needs.”
