Why San Diego Is One of The Top Locations to Consider Working as an Engineer

Engineers are in high demand across the country, from big cities to small towns and even many rural areas. So why should you consider working in San Diego, as opposed to anywhere else in the country? Here are four major reasons why San Diego is a top choice for engineers.


It’s tough to beat the weather in San Diego. Year-round temperatures rarely exceed 80 F or drop below 50 F. Rain is infrequent and short-lived…and if you want to visit a different climate, you can hit the slopes at a variety of ski resorts within a three-hour drive!


San Diego is on the Pacific coast, with more than 70 miles of beaches to explore. You’ll quickly find your favorites for different activities—from walking your dog to surfing to hanging out with your family. Some beaches are perfect for throwing a party, while others are an excellent choice for a romantic stroll.

Small Town/Big City Vibe

San Diego can best be described as a collection of small towns that make a big city. There are several in the San Diego area such as Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Vista, Chula Vista and Escondido. You can scope out the vibes of various neighborhoods and choose the one that’s the right fit for you. And you’ll find plenty of culture, from craft beer and eclectic food options to theme parks, museums, and the performing arts.

Innovation and Tech Hub

As an engineer, you’re doubtless drawn to innovation. And San Diego delivers, with a thriving tech community that ranges from wireless companies to biotech startups. You’ll always have the opportunity to learn more, network more, and chart a career path built on innovation.
