Study Programme

Quantum Information Science is an interdisciplinary education combining computer science, mathematics, and physics. It provides you with a comprehensive theoretical, technological, and experimental curriculum.

You can choose to specialise in theoretical directions within computer science, mathematics, or physics, or you can choose more technological or experimental specializations.

Quantum Information Science is a growing, interdisciplinary field with the potential to shape the future of computing and communication. This study programme is the first of its kind in Denmark, and only a few universities worldwide offer similar programmes.

Quantum Information Science gives you a solid foundation in both theoretical and practical quantum information. You will get the chance to explore the academic and commercial perspectives of the field at the very highest level.

With a degree in Quantum Information Science you will have a range of career and employment opportunities. You may be working on creating the quantum computers of the future, or you may work on developing the software and algorithms which are special to quantum computers, quantum computations or quantum communication. This can be both from a more applied perspective or more research-oriented.
