Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Doctoral Degree Programs

Doctor of Philosophy in Quantum Computing is designed to provide students with the opportunity to conduct extensive and sustained original research. Quantum Computing harnesses and exploits the laws of quantum mechanics to process information. Using the phenomena of superposition and entanglement, a quantum computer can process a vast number of calculations simultaneously. Difficult task that there was once thought impossible for classical computers can be achieved quickly and efficiently using quantum computing. Graduates will contribute significantly to the Quantum Computing discipline through the creation of new knowledge and ideas. The PhD in Quantum Computing program is designed as a research doctorate where students quickly become able to engage in scholarly research and publishing.

All required courses are offered exclusively online in a 16-week asynchronous format.

Student Outcomes

Upon graduation, graduates will be able to

  • Integrate and synthesize alternate, divergent, or contradictory perspectives or ideas fully within the field of Quantum Computing.
  • Demonstrate advanced knowledge and competencies in Quantum Computing.
