Master in Nanosciences and nanotechnologies

Quantum information and quantum engineering 2nd year

Presentation and goals

The emergence of quantum technologies already allows us to foresee the development of new simulation and optimization tools to address major global challenges. These technologies are a strategic global issue for universities, industries and innovation, as they have the potential to revolutionize the design and implementation of computing, information, communication and sensing sciences and technologies. France has recently invested 1.8 billion euros in this field.

In view of Grenoble's internationally recognized position in quantum technologies, and in response to the needs of students and European and national programs, this Master's 2-year program, created in 2021, offers training that is perfectly suited to the new needs of research laboratories, industries, and startups working on cutting-edge subjects that are evolving very rapidly in the context of very strong international competition.

This 2nd year Master's program provides students with a high level of expertise in concepts at the interface between fundamental and experimental aspects of quantum physics, for the control of quantum objects and their applications to quantum technologies. This Master also reinforces the need for openness thanks to multidisciplinary teachings at the interface with mathematics and computer science. This training is in perfect adequacy with the current developments in quantum technologies, both at the level of the Grenoble eco-system, and at the national and international levels. This training allows students to finalize their training with numerous internship opportunities, and to pursue a thesis in fundamental or applied physics research laboratories, or in industrial companies and startups.

This program is aimed at national and international students with high potential and motivation, who have obtained a Master 1 or equivalent, and who wish to take up tomorrow's quantum challenges and develop their scientific ambitions and their research project. The students will be part of the Grenoble community, which is very active in the field of quantum technologies thanks to the QuantAlps research federation in Quantum Sciences and Technologies.

This training allows students to pursue the Quantum Thematic Program of the Graduate School , provided they have successfully completed the first year of this program, and also allows them to apply for excellence grants, provided they do not already hold a grant based on academic criteria.
