Programme

Quantum technology is by nature an interdisciplinary subject with physics and technology. In this programme you can choose different directions and mix future opportunities with technology that are already developed and used today.

In the first semester, you will gain a broad knowledge in quantum physics and technology. These initial courses ensure that all students share a common foundation of knowledge and allows you to understand the different choices of courses available within the master programme.

The second and third semester contain the possibility to select a range of different courses. This includes more fundamental quantum physics, courses towards applied quantum technology, quantum materials, as well as courses that specifically target the most novel implementation of quantum technology.
