First Qualcomm Fellowships at UCLA EE Dept.
The Qualcomm Fellowship committee chaired by Distinguished
Professor Yahya Rahmat-Samii together with Professors Babak
Daneshrad and William Kaiser has concluded the search for the
winners of the first Qualcomm Fellowships in UCLA. The two
outstanding graduate students are Long Kong (Advisor, Professor
Behzad Razavi) and Paul Martin (Advisor, Professor Mani
The Qualcomm Fellowships select the most promising research proposals that would pioneer the advent of a new paradigm in the broad area of wireless technology. Both students will receive full graduate student research (GSR) support including non-resident tuition (NRT) fee for the 2013-2014 academic year and a possible paid summer internship in 2014 at Qualcomm.
Qualcomm has been a consistent supporter of the electrical engineering department for several years now through the Industrial Affiliates Program. Every year a team of Qualcomm engineers visit the department to recruit interns for their headquarters in San Diego. The Qualcomm Fellowship is a confirmation of Qualcomm's confidence in UCLA for educating top notch engineers who will lead in developing the future of wireless technology as demonstrated by Qualcomm's co-founder, Andrew Viterbi.
The Qualcomm Fellowship committee chair and members are known for their seminal contributions and extensive research in wireless systems and communications with applications in various fields of interest.
