Enter the quantum realm and learn to design and create superconducting quantum circuits, working alongside world class researchers to help design and build Sweden’s quantum computer. Choosing the Quantum engineering profile will give you the opportunity to explore the worlds of molecular electronics, quantum optics and systems, superconducting devices and more, in one of the best equipped university cleanrooms in Europe.
Are you interested in an international career in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, both at the fundamental level, and in the design and creation of components at the nanoscale? Then the Quantum engineering profile in Nanotechnology might be the right fit for you.
In close collaboration with researchers at the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology (WACQT), you will study the following courses in particular:
● Molecular electronics
● Quantum computing
● Superconducting devices
● Open quantum systems
● Quantum optics and information
● Superconducting devices: fundamentals and applications
● Superconductivity and low-temperature physics
A unique feature is that you will become part of the research environment at Chalmers, with access to our cleanroom and other world-class facilities for labs and group projects. Chalmers is leading the development of quantum computing in Sweden, and you will be right at the forefront of the global race to take the technology further.
Our cleanroom is one of the few worldwide where master's students can carry out their projects. You will also be introduced to other modern laboratories for both manufacturing and analysis, even in your first year. The conclusion of the programme consists of a thesis based on a half-or full-year research work carried out with some of the researchers in the area, either within our departments or with industrial partners. You will have the possibility to continue working in the laboratories as part of your master's thesis.
The master's programme in Nanotechnology as a whole is based on both physics and chemistry, and will give you a thorough grounding in nanoscale properties and hands-on experience in experimental techniques. Future applications within electronics, telecommunication, and information systems, including quantum computers, medicine, and natural or artificial biosystems will rely heavily upon progress in nanoscale technologies. At the nanoscale, new physical, chemical, and biological properties emerge, and research in this field often takes place on the borders between these disciplines. Proficiency in theoretical and practical aspects of these areas will be important both within industry and academia.
Besides equipping you with a solid theoretical background in physics, chemistry, and technology of nanoscale systems, the programme will also provide you with knowledge of the innovative possibilities of nanotechnology and ample hands-on experience in experimental techniques.
The skills and knowledge you acquire will ensure you are in high demand in society, whether you choose to continue your studies further or begin a career in the industry.
