Certificate Program in Quantum Engineering and Technology
Learn the basics of quantum information science in an accelerated format.
The rapidly emerging field of quantum engineering has the power to transform cybersecurity, materials development, computing, and other research areas, but jobs within the field require specific knowledge of quantum science and engineering and their potential applications.
Companies in the communications, electronics, optics, and materials industries are examining how to quickly and effectively build a quantum-ready workforce. Many existing scientists and engineers have fundamental and domain-specific knowledge that makes them prime candidates for careers in quantum engineering and technology with only limited retraining. Companies and industry professionals from outside quantum engineering are demanding opportunities for professional development that will enable them to switch from classical to quantum industrial roles.
This four-day program will aid participants in gaining an understanding of the basics of quantum information science (QIS). Particular attention will be focused on QIS applications, such as quantum sensing, quantum communication, and quantum computing. The course will be team-taught by faculty drawing on a wealth of scientific and laboratory experience. This program is designed for individuals with 10-15 years of professional experience.
Designed for electrical and other engineers, materials scientists, and physicists with backgrounds in classical physics and engineering, from the materials and communications engineering R&D and other industries.
