**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 Systems Engineering intern** you have the opportunity to push the boundaries of what exists and establish the new standards for tomorrow. You will work as an equal contributor on a team of leading engineers to innovate on CDMA Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) and architect, analyze and simulate cutting-edge, next-generation wireless networks.

You will leverage your advanced degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering to characterize and improve the performance of networks for voice, packet data, video telephony and video streaming services while identifying functionality for which minimum performance requirements should exist. You may take the lead on generating and consolidating performance requirements data and conducting analysis and evaluation of critical performance metrics for 4G and 5G wireless platforms.

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 Responsibilities & Technologies :**

+ Physical Layer Systems Design

+ Audio/Video/Graphics Multimedia

+ MAC Layer Systems Design

+ Digital Signal Processing

+ OFDM Development **Relevant Skills**

+ Proficient to expert programming ability in C/C++, Perl and Matlab

+ Knowledge of radio communication theory and digital signal processing (DSP) as well a solid background in cellular communication systems across layers.

+ Knowledge and/or applicable experience in MIMO, OFDM, CDMA.

+ Experience with wireless standards (4G LTE, 5G NR, mmWave, IOT, C-V2X, Bluetooth, WLAN, etc.) **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.
