Ginde’s talk will be of interest to students considering a career in industry. Drawing on 15 years of industry experience at the forefront of the smartphone revolution, as well as fond but fading memories from his student years, Ginde hopes to provide an insider’s viewpoint on a career in industry, the value of university education and transitioning effectively from being a student to an engineer in the “real world.” No background in electrical engineering required!
Ginde is currently a computer engineer with 15 years of experience at Qualcomm Inc, a leading wireless semiconductor company based in San Diego, California. Since 2012, he has been a part of a global system-on-chip team responsible for developing industry-leading wireless chipsets that power billions of smart phones and other wireless-enabled devices. His current expertise is in the area of system performance and architecture. He has led teams in this area of work during the architecture, design and commercialization phases of several of Qualcomm’s recent chipsets. In his previous role, he served as a system architect during the incipient years of Qualcomm’s IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) project, which now enables carrier-grade internet voice/video telephony and messaging over wireless networks, contributing to product design, standardization and innovation. Ginde has a master’s degree in electrical engineering, with thesis in wireless systems from Virginia Tech and bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Mumbai University, in India.
The Distinguished Speakers Series is FREE and open to the public and all PNW students, faculty, and staff. We hope you will join us!
