Quantum Technology (Minor)

Program Description

Quantum technology is an emerging field that has the potential to revolutionize many areas of science and technology, from computing to sensing to communication. By offering a minor in this area, undergraduates are provided with a unique opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in a cutting-edge and rapidly developing field, which is attractive to students looking to differentiate themselves in the job market.

Furthermore, quantum technology requires a multidisciplinary approach that involves concepts from physics, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. Offering a minor in this area can help students develop a broader understanding of these subjects and how they can be applied to real-world problems. It can also encourage collaboration between students and faculty from different departments, leading to a more diverse and innovative learning environment.


There are opportunities for students to intern in companies and laboratories in the area. Students can apply for placement in one such position upon completion of the minor.

Applying for the Minor

Apply for a minor in Albert using the link in the My Academics section of the Student Center.

Students should apply for the minor before applying for graduation. After applying for the minor, the application is then forwarded to the Home School Advising Office, Host School Advising Office, Host School Department/Program, and the Academic Dean’s office.

The departmental advisers governing the minor will have access to approve or disapprove the minor online using the Graduation Tracking Search page. If a student is registered for a course for the minor during their last semester, the adviser can still set the status to departmental approved pending current courses.
