The Master’s degree in Quantum Science and Engineering offers two specializations to choose from:

  • Quantum information and computation
  • Quantum hardware and engineering

The two specializations overlap and both contain a strong component in general classical engineering and computer science subjects. Students must complete 40 ECTS with at least 30 ECTS in the chosen specialization and up to 10 ECTS from the other one.

Quantum information and computation

The strong focus is on quantum information and communication, quantum computation and algorithms developed in the last decades by computer scientists, mathematicians and physicists. The simulations of quantum systems is also addressed with applications in physics and chemistry. A range of modern topics at the heart of fundamental quantum science is also covered by classes on quantum gases, non-linear optics, cavity electrodynamics, transport in mesoscopic systems.

Quantum hardware and engineering

The focus is on quantum technology and related experimental techniques. A range of classes cover topics in metrology, nanotechnology, semi-conductor devices, photonic systems, qubit platforms, material science. This specialization also offers a strong basis in quantum information and computation, and many topics in fundamental quantum science which may form the underpinning of future technologies (e.g., non-linear optics, cavity electrodynamics).
