Quantum Undergraduate Education & Scientific Training


Quantum Undergraduate Education & Scientific Training

Education and workforce training in quantum information science and technology (QIST) exists primarily at the graduate and postdoctoral positions, with few undergraduate efforts now growing out of these. This workshop aims to maximize the impact of these efforts in undergraduate QIST education by bringing together faculty from the CSU and other Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs) to learn the state of undergraduate QIST education, identify challenges associated with implementing QIST curriculum at PUIs and to develop strategies and solutions to deal with these challenges. The workshop will be held virtually in June of 2021.

For more information please reach out to Justin Perron or Shahed Sharif
