Quantum Science and Quantum Information


About this minor

The minor programme begins with covering the fundamental knowledge you will need from mathematics, quantum mechanics and computer science. After this, you dive into learning about modern quantum technologies, in particular hardware platforms for realizing qubits, quantum communication protocols, and quantum sensing and measurements. In a team project at the end of the minor you will work on applications in quantum technology, involving hardware or software.
