WASHINGTON—The Justice Department accused six Chinese citizens, including three professors who studied together at the University of Southern California, of conspiring to steal sensitive wireless technology from U.S. companies.

The six individuals allegedly brought trade secrets relating to technology used to filter out unwanted signals in wireless devices from U.S. companies Avago Technologies and Skyworks Solutions Inc. back to China’s Tianjin University, according to an indictment unsealed late Monday. They then set up a joint venture with the university to produce and sell equipment using the technology, according to the indictment, and won contracts to sell it to both businesses and the military.
