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. Opportunities available across software, hardware, and systems engineering.
+ 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
+ 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 throughout your internship. _*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.Possible Projects:1.) Coop opportunities exist for positions in the QCT Global SOC group. This group is responsible for the design and development of Qualcomm’s 5G baseband wireless modem ASICs, Snapdragon integrated mobile processors that targets mobile, compute, and autonomous driving markets, wide range of application processors for IoT market, and cloud AI based datacenter processors. Tasks include digital logic design, test bench development, evaluating design-for-test strategies, profiling silicon performance and power, in addition to developing automation scripts using Python, Perl, and shell scripting.Position available: one each in the following functional team within Global SOC group- SOC Integration- SOC Verification- Design-for-Test- Global CAD2.) Product and Test Engineering CoopThe Product and Test team is responsible for developing Qualcomm leading-edge Snapdragon Products in advanced silicon technology. Project will include hand on experience with VLSI silicon testing and debug, silicon data diagnostic and analysis, generate report as well as exploring report automation tools. There is opportunity to rotate within various groups in Product and Test department to expedience different functional group operation.3.) Modem firmware team develops real-time physical layer control and signal processing software for mobile chipsets. This often requires a high degree of code performance to meet tight timelines. Specific intern projects are tailored to candidate skills/interests, and may include any of the following: – Implementation of air interface (usually LTE or 5G) protocol modules – Refactoring of code to meet critical timelines, at the algorithmic and implementation level – Assembly programming on a proprietary DSP processor (Hexagon) – Development of software test frameworks, including implementation of simulation models4.) The intern will perform pre-silicon validation of the DFS/SS features for the next generation mobile device. DFS involves detection of radar devices operating in band while SS involves scanning of other nearby channels for energy in the spectrum.5.) The overall responsibility is to evaluate the WLAN Access Points for different features under varying environments. Validate End user scenarios for Enterprise/Retail/Carrier customers. Will have hands on experience in working on Wi-Fi 6, 6Ghz and 5G backhaul for Access points. Will be involved in development and deployment of automation scripts for multiple advance feature evaluation like OFDMA, MU-MIMO and TWT. Work with multiple 3rd party traffic simulators and network congestion tools.6.) Bluetooth Firmware Development
In study towards a Bachelor’s or MS degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science
Must be available for at least 6 months from July-Dec 2020
