Join the Team!
USC Racing is open to all majors and years. While most of the team are engineers, you don’t have to be an engineer to be involved – in fact, one of our most hard-core members is a math major! We also have an active business team that manages our portfolio, fundraising, and marketing, which has been a great showcase for the business students on the team.
“But I don’t know anything about cars!” That’s fine, many of us came in as freshman having never touched a car engine before. You’ll learn quickly, and we’ll help teach you how everything works. Some minimum qualifications are enthusiasm, wanting to learn and put in effort, and being willing to get hands-on and a little dirty. Don’t let inexperience get in your way.

To join, come by the shop during shop hours (location and hours below – feel free to knock if the door is closed during shop hours) or drop by our general meeting held every Wednesday at 5pm in Zumberge Hall (ZHS) 163. You’ll have to sign a safety waiver, pay a $20 membership fee for the first semester on the team and $10 for the second semester each year, and you’re officially part of the team.
Once you do all that, make sure to also register on this website with your @usc.edu email to get added to the team mailing list. Also make sure to talk to a team lead about getting added to the members-only Slack app (most of the team chit-chat goes on there).
We are located in the Rapp Engineering Building (RRB). Our shop is inside the garage-looking part of RRB, which is located on Watt Way opposite of Vivian Hall (VHE).
