Engineering – Hardware
California – San Diego
Before there were smartphones or smart cities, before autonomous cars or 360° virtual reality videos, there was our technology. Headquartered in San Diego, for over 30 years Qualcomm inventions have inspired others to make the impossible, possible. From 5G to artificial intelligence, from IoT to automotive and extended reality applications, Qualcomm is inventing the technologies of an intelligently connected future, spearheading research efforts for the next global wireless standard, and collaborating with industry leaders in the wireless value chain to make this future a commercial reality.
**As a Qualcomm Hardware Engineering intern** you have the opportunity to push the boundaries of what exists and establish the new standards for tomorrow. You will leverage your degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering to work with with programmable logic, digital signal processors, microprocessors, ASICs and SoCs on high-density digital or RF circuit cards and gain hands-on knowledge during design validation and system integration.
Sounds like a pretty big deal to just start with a simple internship, doesn’t it? But we are looking for the next generation of dreamers, inventors, rebels, risk takers, and pioneers.
**Potential Project / Technologies**
+ RF Hardware Design
+ Board and FPGA Design
+ Digital ASIC Design
+ Antenna Design
+ Multimedia Architecture Design **Relevant Skills:**
+ Verifying SoC with embedded RISC/DSP processors, communications/networking ASICs
+ Verilog or VHDL, C/C++, Tcl/Perl/shell-scripting
+ Academic or project experience and/or strong OO programming experience is a plus.
+ Knowledge of wireless/wired communications and protocols or graphics/video multimedia is a plus. **Spend your summer working in the future.** Working at Qualcomm may be the closest you’ll get to experiencing time travel. You won’t just work in a lab or write lines of code. Our interns join world-class teams to help define and build what is next for mobility and the world.
+ You’ll be paired with a mentor with visibility to your project and team, receive support from your manager and have access to the entire Qualcomm employee community to ensure your success.
+ In addition to competitive pay and accrued vacation time, you will receive full relocation coverage and furnished housing accommodations for the duration of your internship
+ We’ll make sure you have fun outside of work with weekend surf lessons & beach days, networking opportunities with Qualcomm executives and professionals, company-wide mentorship program platform, overnight hackathon, community service opportunities, and so much more…
+ Whether you’re graduating and seeking a full-time position after your internship, or hoping to return for another internship the following year, you will be considered for a returning offer through an evaluation of your work from the summer. _*Certain program offerings are only available in certain office locations or to those who qualify based on pre-determined criteria. Specific benefits provided for given roles and locations will be detailed at the time of offer._ All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
