    Interview Details

    The process consisted of a written round followed by a technical and then HR interview. The written round had questions on aptitude and on C,C++ coding. Being a fresher from ECE my interview was based on the project that i had done in the summers and on mobile communication and embedded systems( since i specified that to be my field of intrest). The interviewer was very friendly and did everything to make me feel at home.

    Intern Interview

    Interview Details

    A few questions of my research, followed by some technique questions on OFDM, MIMO, wireless capacity and DSP. The interviewer is a member of the group and apparently has a very strong background and a lot of experiences. Technique questions are not about concepts but rather questions that you need to explore using your knowledge. A very fun thinking process.
