UofRochester Receives $1.5 Million Grant for Quantum Computing Research & Educational Development

By IQT News posted 20 Aug 2019

(HomelandPrepNews) The National Science Foundation recently awarded the University of Rochester a $1.5 million grant quantum computing research. Researchers will use the funding to investigate the challenges of working with and stabilizing quantum particles, called qubits. The university also will use the funds to develop engineering and quantum computing classes for students from high school to the graduate level and to create educational materials.
“The world-class scientists at the University of Rochester produce ground-breaking discoveries that help advance our knowledge of the sciences, and this new federal funding will allow the university to continue that tradition,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said. “By studying how quantum particles work, this research could change the way we work with computers; and by ensuring that students have access to this research, the University is preparing the future of New York’s scientific workforce. I’m proud to announce this funding for the University of Rochester and I will always fight for the resources that New York’s universities need to succeed.”
