Learning outcomes

Through your studies in Quantum Technology, you will build strong foundations in:

  • Quantum physics. You will learn the fundamentals of quantum physics how to apply its principles in real-world technologies such as in the superconducting quantum computer.
  • Applied mathematics. You will advance your competences in integral and differential calculus, matrix algebra, statistical analysis and numerical methods.
  • Programming and engineering. You will know how to develop computer algorithms and programs, especially those that exploit quantum mechanical principles. You will also be able to carry out experiments on quantum systems.
  • Teamwork and communication.  You will develop your ability to work effectively in a team and learn how to communicate your results in reports and presentations.
