Singapore Polytechnic (SP) and Qualcomm Technologies have announced a joint initiative on 8 April 2024, providing students with access to 5G training and certification programmes.

As a part of the 5G University programme by Qualcomm Academy, this initiative will allow SP students to enrol in free 5G courses and earn certifications upon completion.  The skills and knowledge provide a foundation in a 5G landscape.

The joint initiative also hopes to address the growing demand for professionals with expertise in 5G technology, where 5G skills are needed in various industries like telecommunications, automotive, healthcare, and manufacturing.

The initiative offers SP students the following opportunities:

  • Two free beginner-level 5G courses: Students can enrol in two courses: 5G Primer and Fundamentals of Cellular Communications and 5G, to gain knowledge about 5G technology, its applications and more
  • Introductory-level certification: Upon completion of the beginner courses, SP students can take an exam to earn a 5G certificate from Qualcomm Technologies, demonstrating their understanding of 5G basics and how it works
  • Associate-level certification: For those interested in pursuing a career in 5G, students can pursue the more rigorous and highly technical associate-level certification program to prepare for a career as associate-level wireless engineers.

Qualcomm Academy's 5G University Program, which includes the two beginner courses offered to SP students, has reached over 11,000 students worldwide since its launch in 2021.
