San Diego Chapter


About us: 

The San Diego Chapter covers San Diego and Imperial counties, home to more than 8,000 Cal Poly alumni. The vast majority of those alumni live in the San Diego area, where engineering is a popular profession, specifically aeronautical engineering.

Wireless telecommunications company Qualcomm is the largest employer of Cal Poly graduates in this area. Cal Poly is also well represented at companies working to make satellites, aircraft and even solar turbines.  The three most popular professions in San Diego are engineering, sales, and entrepreneurship.

The San Diego Chapter is known for their Potluck Socials, hosted at the homes of various local alumni. These events are a good way to get to know fellow alumni, while raising money for scholarships. Other regular events include Padres games, hikes, mixers and holiday parties.
