Build and learn cool things with great people.

That's the motto that Scope was founded and built on. As a member you will build projects as part of an exciting curriculum that hones and improves your coding skills. Best of all, members join the tight-knit Scope family and get to partake in awesome community events throughout the semester.

At Scope, we also host retreats, industry speakers, hackathons, and more to encourage an inclusive culture of creation, hacking, and fun at USC.


Train

Members spend the first half of the semester following the same onboarding process that Facebook and Airbnb use to train their interns. You'll be learning a new topic by building a new mini-project every week.

Hack

After the course, we host our annual internal hackathon. Consisting of ideation, coding, and lots of whiteboards, by the end of the night you'll be itching to get started building your ideas.

Create

The second half of the semester will be spent working on a product on an idea from the hackathon. By the end of the semester you'll have an awesome project, great friends, and tons of experience working in a development team.

Belong

One of the biggest aims of Scope is to create a community of developers who love to build. Throughout the semester we have retreats, dinners, and other events to build this community. You will want to go to Scope meetings as much for the people and the energy as for the learning.
