rounds involved in the placement interview, and also shares some campus placement tips and
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Qualcomm Incorporated is an American global semiconductor company that designs and markets
wireless telecommunications products and services. The company headquarters are located in San
Diego, California, United States. The company has 157 worldwide locations. The parent company is
Qualcomm Incorporated (Qualcomm), which includes the Qualcomm Technology Licensing Division
(QTL). Qualcomm's wholly owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI), operates
substantially all of Qualcomm's R&D activities, as well as its product and services businesses,
including its semiconductor business, Qualcomm CDMA Technologies.
Qualcomm has 5 offices in India, out of which 3 are technical and 2 are marketing based. The
technical units are located in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Chennai whereas the marketing units are in
Delhi and Mumbai.
Saurabh was offered a technical profile, that of an associate engineer at Bangalore.
CAMPUS PLACEMENT PROCEDURE
The campus placement procedure consists of 3 parts- A written test which is followed by a
Placement interview which is both technical, and HR based.
Written Test – The written test was divided into 3 sections – an aptitude test, a coding section and a
technical section. The aptitude test was not very challenging, and candidates can prepare for it using
aptitude books, such as those by Arun Sharma. The coding section included C and C++, for which
candidates can use books by Yashwanth Khanelkar or Balaguruswamy for help.
Technical Section- The questions were mainly from Analogue electronics, digital electronics and
communication systems. In Analogue electronics, the questions were mainly about diodes,
transistors and equations relating to them. One advice for aspirants would be to focus on learning
the equations well and practicing questions related to them since the questions are objective. For
Digital Electronics, candidates can focus on Boolean algebra. As for communications, questions
relating to basic filters were also asked. Candidates must be sure of the concepts and apply formulas
to the questions given.
HR Round- Questions covered several personal areas such as the candidate’s family background,
schooling, and why they wanted to join Qualcomm. Placement tips and suggestions here for
aspirants would be to prepare for such questions beforehand using the resources available since
they can be very helpful in the actual interview.
PLACEMENT TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
1) Be confident of your skills
2) Maintain a decent percentage, since the cut-off for Qualcomm was 70%.
3) Be thorough with your concepts and read them well.
4) Practice questions from other books, but first be clear with the concepts you’re studying.

One standard procedure is to apply for the relevant positions on careers page of Qualcomm. Further, the company has a referral portal where existing employees can refer other people. A referral certainly enhances your chances of getting an interview by a great extent.
After that it all depends on the interview.
++: Qualcomm (rather almost all companies) is expending it's workforce in India. Thus, it's a great time to be in the industry.
@saurabh gupta you are electronics engineer.. You have done graduation in electronics and telecommunication and doing coding in qualcom which is a core semiconductor company who manufacares processors. I think this js just point to be fixed. Every guy who takes electronics as a subject goes into coding as IT developer making IT as competitive branch and creating more competition for IT CS background Students..
@Technical guru: I am a VLSI (Physical Design STA) Engineer at Qualcomm which is core electronics work. The interview spans all the field discussed in the video but the work is completely VLSI oriented.
Qualcomm is looking for basic coding skills in interviews as certain scripting/coding is still required to fasten your work even in semiconductor space.
Sure, you do stand a good chance. If you can decide which aspect of Qualcomm suits you, then it will be much better. With ARM knowledge, I guess you can look into CPU front end (if you want to restrict yourself to CPUs) or else apply as a fresher. I have replied in another comment to Divyanshu on how to apply.
Sorry for late reply.
Same procedure for Master's students. The positive news for you is that I see a lot of Master's students are hired by Qualcomm as compared to undergrad now-a-days. So, you have plus there.
sir, i have a very good skills and knowledge in communication system and digital electronics , but the thing is i have the overall cut off is 68.38. is there any possible or eligible to attend the interview process in Qualcomm.
Sorry for late reply.
Difficult (but possible) through campus interviews (as they keep a higher cutoff). If you can get an interview scheduled through a referral, then it's certainly possible. You can explain the reason of low GPA to the panelists.
I am ECE freshers, I want to be the part of Qualcomm, I have been checking the career section but I didn't find any vacancy for freshers. Plz help me by knowing how I can reach to the interview opportunity
I hope your preparation was fruitful. For anyone who still has this question, the answer is a definite Yes. 2.5 months is good enough to revise the previously studied concepts and learn any new concepts, if required.
Sorry for late reply. I hope the Embedded course helped you.
In case you still looking for job and in VLSI, I would suggest to take a course on Physical Design. There are a lot of openings in Physical design and prior knowledge will certainly help you on resume and interview.
Bro, I have a cut off of 68%. I m very much fascinated to work in core companies i. e., only VLSI companies. Can u please do help me and refer me in your company. Not only in ur company any VLSI companies. So I will be very much privileged to you if u help me Bro.

Hope the following solves your query:
CTCI (cracking the coding interview) is a Q/A based, to just get you started on algorithm/data structure and to clear all your myths/beliefs about interview ;)
CLRS is mathematical/theory based book, so there is no Q/A. Here you don't just get started, but you start/understand/design/prove then finally you code it
Answering your question, I have read both, one for exams(CLRS) and one for an interview(CTCI). All the question in CTCI are there in CLRS and even more, a lot more than needed. If I'm not wrong CTCI questions start with arrays then strings, bit manipulation, stacks/queues, sortings, backtracking, searching, OOP, System design
And CTCI has some cool tips for you before you hit the interview ground.
Sorry Sneh for late reply.
In general, think from the point that what's the main point that "You want" to be discussed in an interview. A good project is one good way to do this since you know about the project well and doesn't need any additional preparation.
Sorry of late reply.
In India, almost all of the intern recruiting is done though on-campus interviews.
If you are outside India, then they have a position on their careers page for interns (can be found on LinkedIn as well). You can apply there.
India need manufacturing plant of Qualcomm chip ......all these company are selling their hardware in India and earring so much ...... all hardware company setting up Their basic office in two three big cities India ....just as formality , Indian government need to make a policy on thi she
brother qualcom ,texas like high grade companies doesnot come to our college . so what 1. skills i should have to get placed offcampus
2.what is basically qualcomm doing in field of communication
3.where to apply for offcampus placements
These short and crisp informative videos are a boon to all the students appearing for placements .Job interviews, Group Discussions can get pretty hectic and one can get easily lost in the preparation. These videos give the much needed push to prepare for campus placements.
+Abhinav Maturu Written round covers topics that you have read throughout in your curriculum. On other side, during Technical round, the interviewer seeks to know you better and likes to challenge in area that you are feel you are strong at. That's where you should have some topics that you are confident discussing related to VLSI, communication etc. At times, they do select 2-3 questions from your written test to discuss, again just to know your zone.
Hope it helps!!
Im a 3rd year student from nit agartala. Though we do not get any internships through clg, i want to apply for qualcomm that is off campus internship... Can i have a chance to get it?? If yes, procedure to apply it??? please give reply brother... im dying in that... mail to me - [email protected] or call me +918119904288
+Dinesh Messi Apology for my late reply.
For offline internship opportunities, visit Qualcomm's Job Portal. Although all interns which come to my memory, were Campus recruits. But there are good opportunities, in case you are looking for Job (Yes, even as fresher). Just go to the Job Portal and apply there, OR even better if you know someone in Qualcomm, then you can take a referral from him. Good Luck!!
Being a 3rd year ECE student and applying for internship at Qualcomm,does it matter much if we have worked on projects or if we are really good at concepts in electronics then we can crack the internship??
+Shivangni Rani Apologies for my late reply.
Concepts are a must for cracking any core company, as you need to clear written test. When it comes to interview, remeber that an average interview duration is 30 min and only 2-3 topics at max. can be tested in such short duration. If you have done some projects, most likely the questions will be based on your project. And if you have done that sincerely then you can easily answer those. In case you haven't, still it's OK as in that case the interviewer will try to test your concepts in depth. Try to bring the interviewer to those topics which you have prepared well. And if you are good then you will be able to crack it. Best of Luck!!
