NORTHAMPTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / November 8, 2022 / Qualcomm Technologies expanded access to STEM education worldwide with the launch of its new 5G training university program. The company launched the program in the fall of 2021 through the Qualcomm Wireless Academy (QWA), the company's educational and training branch.
What is QWA's 5G University Training Program?
QWA's university program gives students around the world the opportunity to receive 5G training and certification from industry-leading engineers at Qualcomm Technologies. While this training normally costs hundreds of dollars per course, university students can receive two QWA 5G training courses for free. After enrolling in their free training, students may then pay a small fee ($29) to enroll in the company's 5G Introductory-Level Certification exam. If they pass the exam, students will receive an official certification from a 5G industry leader.
By taking this training and becoming certified by Qualcomm Technologies, students enhance their 5G knowledge, skills, and professional portfolios, and begin to arm themselves with the tools they need to optimize 5G technology in the workplace.
In addition to receiving 5G training and certification, as a part of this program, students in North America may upload their resumes for Qualcomm recruiters to view, offering students a valuable networking opportunity.
How Does QWA's University Program Work?
This program is open to any full-time university student around the world, including students studying for an Associate's, Bachelor's, Master's, or PhD degree. The following is a breakdown of how the program works:
