Now accepting applications for Fall 2022! The new Masters of Science Degree in Optical Sciences - Quantum Information Science and Engineering (QISE). 

Laying the foundation to serve as a national model in QISE education, the QISE emphasis at Wyant College of Optical Sciences is designed to meet industry’s growing need for a transdisciplinary workforce with expertise in Quantum Information (QI). Providing students with theoretical and hands-on experience with an array of quantum equipment, spanning the fields of engineering, computer science, physics and, math, while exposing the student to the social, ethical, and legal implications of QI technology. The curriculum will combine tailored courses in quantum mechanics, information theory, computer science, optics and materials, algorithms, and communications system engineering, as well as laboratory and experiential courses addressing the social, ethical, and legal implications of QI technology. Most of these courses are not yet offered at USA universities even though the relevant skills are in high demand with industry partners.
