What is Quantum Computing?

The field of Quantum Computing has emerged as a response to our increasing and relentless ability to demand more computing power, particularly on hard problems related to many disciplines, including new material discovery, life sciences, finance, and machine learning. The importance of the field is calling for an entirely new type of professional – the Quantum Computer Scientist. 

A Quantum Computer Scientist requires expertise in quantum physics, quantum information theory, optimization theory; training in data management, computation and analysis; and experience in scientific or industrial collaboration.

Program Requirements

  • Students must successfully complete six graduate level courses (totalling 3.0 Full Course Equivalents (FCEs)) as follows:
    • Two courses (1.0 FCEs) chosen from the Department of Physics’ course schedule. 
    • Two courses (1.0 FCEs) chosen from the Department of Computer Science’s (CSC designator) course schedule.
    • Two required courses (1.0 FCEs): Communication for Computer Scientists (CSC 2701H) and Technical Entrepreneurship (CSC 2702H).
  • An eight-month industrial internship, CSC 2703H (3.5 FCEs). The internship is coordinated by the department and evaluated on a pass/fail basis. ‘Pass’ grades are awarded based on evaluations received from the industry/academic supervisors and submission of an appropriately written final report, documenting the details of the applied research conducted during the internship.
