Alumni of Scripps Institution of Oceanography represent nearly 4,000 academics, scientists, communicators, policymakers, experts, and entrepreneurs that leverage their diverse backgrounds to advance innovative solutions. Their accomplishments reach far and wide, from education and environment to industry and innovation, and their impact spans the expanse of our planet, from deep oceans to deep space.
Many from our active alumni community stay connected each year, returning to meet and mentor students, speak at special events, pursue professional goals and continued education, and develop partnerships with faculty and researchers here at UC San Diego. We thank them for returning to share their time and talents!
The Scripps alumni network is robust and vibrant.

Like LinkedIn, Tritons Connect is a helpful tool to find and interact with your fellow alumni.

UC San Diego Career Center
Wherever you are on your professional journey, the UC San Diego Career Center is here to support you along the way. As a Triton, you can request personalized resume and cover letter advising for 6 months after graduation, and have lifetime access to free resources including career fairs, job listings, networking tools and events.
