About the programme
Quantum Science and Technology is a broad and interdisciplinary field covering a wide range of scientific areas including Quantum Computing, Quantum Sensing, Quantum Simulation and more. Underlying all these sectors are firmly grounded principles of quantum mechanics relying on the developments of other areas such as mathematics, information technology, electrical engineering, and chemistry.
Given the complexity of this field, the Technical University of Munich and Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich have joined together to offer an interdisciplinary Master of Science in Quantum Science and Technology (QST) taught in English. Students will benefit from the research environment provided by the Excellence Cluster Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology.
The study programme for the QST Master goes beyond teaching quantum mechanics in modern application of Quantum Technologies. Rather, the QST study programmes aims to teach students who will work at the forefront fo quantum science and who will expand the existing research areas in natural sciences, mathematics and engineering.
The courses available within the QST Master's programme cover the basics and skills required to successfully carry out research or industrial projects across interdisciplinary boundaries. The QST Master's programme is a two-tear programme designed to give students experience in research-related training between natural sciences, engineering, and mathematics as well as gain early insight into current research at the highest international level. Students can enrol in classes offered by both of the universities involved and design their own customised curricula. Alongside with the option of designing their own study programme, students can opt to specialise in either Experimental Quantum Science and Technology or Theoretical Quantum Science and Technology.
Prospective students must hold a Bachelor's degree of at least six semesters in Physics or another suitable subject area from a German or foreign university. Holders of an engineering or natural science oriented degree, from a German or foreign university, will also be considered by the admissions committee.
