(WBIW) The Indiana University Board of Trustees has approved six new degrees, one of which is a Master of Science in quantum information science.
The Master of Science in quantum information science will involve an intensive, one-year, multidisciplinary program with tracks that tie into physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, engineering and business. It’s offered through the Office of Multidisciplinary Graduate Programs in the University Graduate School. The degree was proposed by the College of Arts and Sciences, the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering, and the Kelley School of Business.
Most of the faculty who will teach the classes are members of the newly established IU Quantum Science and Engineering Center.
Students who earn the Master of Science in quantum information science can pursue careers with computer and software companies that are active with quantum computation, and national labs involved in quantum information science, among other opportunities.
