The compulsory courses introduce students to quantum science and technology, fundamental physics ranging from thermodynamics to electromagnetism, as well as the necessary analytical and numerical tools from mathematics. The elective courses cover advanced topics, such as quantum information processing, computation, and communication, and materials science intended for future quantum technologies.
The core of the Quantum Technology major includes the following topics:
Quantum devices for advanced technologies
Quantum information processing, communication, and algorithms
Quantum sensing and simulation
Nano-scale fabrication of quantum circuits and processors
Low-temperature physics and materials science for quantum engineering
Theoretical description and understanding of quantum systems
The bachelor’s degree (180 ECTS) is composed of basic studies of the programme (65 ECTS mathematics, programming, industrial engineering and management, obligatory languages, Aalto studies, orientation), the major in quantum technology (65 ECTS including BSc thesis and seminar), the minor (20-25 ECTS) and elective studies (25-30 ECTS).
