The Master of Science degree in Quantum Technology (MSQT) is designed to educate students in the dynamic and growing field of Quantum Information Science and Engineering (QISE). This new program brings together faculty from the Departments of Physics & Astronomy and Electrical Engineering to equip students with a broad set of QISE skills in a cross-disciplinary environment. The program targets students who have already obtained an undergraduate degree in a STEM field. It aims to expose them to more hands-on and specialized work in quantum technologies including quantum sensing, quantum computation, quantum communication, quantum hardware, and the corresponding electronic controls.
