Quantum Technology Concentration for Electrical Engineering

The Quantum Technology concentration will introduce students to the fundamental concepts and engineering challenges of various emerging technologies, including quantum computers, quantum communication systems, and quantum sensors. Students will also gain further training on classical engineering topics that will prepare them to understand and work with emerging quantum technologies.

Concentration Courses (9-10 credits)

Required Courses - Choose one (3-4 credits)

Must complete one of the following EE Advanced Selectives.  The three one-credit course sequence of ECE 59500 (Fundamentals of Current Flow, Introduction to Quantum Transport, and Boltzmann Law: Physics to Computing) may be taken in place of ECE 30500.  If used as an EE Advanced Selective, they may not be used below as an EE Elective.

Selectives (6 credits)

Must complete at least 6 credits from the following electives. 

VIP (Vertically Integrated Projects) and ECE 49600 Undergraduate Projects may be taken for a maximum of 3 credits toward the concentration upon approval of the Associate Head of Undergraduate Programs or Associate Head of Teaching and Learning.
