MSc program: The QuSoft Master Certificate

Are you a motivated MSc student specializing in quantum information science? Then you might be interested in the QuSoft Master Certificate!

Since 2021, QuSoft offers a certificate for MSc students at the University of Amsterdam. It is awarded to students that have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to quantum information science and have carried out their MSc thesis research project at QuSoft.

For prospective master students starting in the academic year 2024/25, we are currently working hard on setting up an entire MSc program in Quantum Computer Science.

BSc program: Quantum

Through the University of Amsterdam a variety of courses in the general area of Quantum Information are available. They range from introductory to advanced. By including some of these courses in your BSc study program, students can get ready for research projects (BSc or MSc theses) or for their future PhD studies in the field.

A BSc Quantum Information module can be followed as part of a BSc program in Physics and Astronomy, Mathematics or Computer Science. The details depend on the embedding BSc program.

The Quantum Quest is a web class for high school students from 16-18 years, organised by QuSoft, UvA and the Quantum Software Consortium. This course takes high-school students on a four-week adventure to learn the basics of quantum computing.

The aim of the course is not primarily to introduce students to programming for the next generation of computers, but to discover the kind of mathematics taught at the university. At the end, you will understand what quantum bits and quantum algorithms are and what they are good for. 

The students are supervised by a team of teaching assistants from the UvA. And the idea of the curriculum comes from QuSoft researchers Maris Ozols and Michael Walter. They are assistant professors at the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics and conduct research on quantum algorithms and quantum information theory at the QuSoft research center in Amsterdam. 

If you are interested please check out the Quantum Quest website for the first upcoming starting date.
