SmartAsset Ranks Orange County as 7th Best Area for STEM Pay in the U.S., and Recognizes Technossus as Notable STEM Employer

A recent study by SmartAsset ranked Orange County, California as one of the top regions in the U.S. for pay in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) professions.

Analyzing data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, SmartAsset looked at 40 different STEM professions, including computer programming, in over 400 of the largest metro areas in the country.  They found average STEM pay in Orange County to be $93,437, closely following other top California STEM cities, including San Francisco and San Jose.

And while many of the most recognized STEM successes have come from the technology arena, the research revealed that in general, math and engineering professionals earn $130,000 on average in the metro areas studied.

The article also recognized Technossus as one of the notable STEM employers in the Orange County area. In addition to incentivizing job candidates and employees, Technossus continues to be involved in local programs to encourage young people to pursue study and careers in STEM, including sponsoring and mentoring a team of UC Irvine Computer Science undergraduates as they pursue their senior project.
