Quantum Technologies Education
Teaching tomorrow’s scientists, deciders, and entrepreneurs is one main goal of the Quantum Social Lab. Members of the Quantum Social Lab offer courses on quantum technology applications such as quantum communications, quantum computing, and quantum sensing. Current studies include “Quantum Computing in Theory and Practice” and “Technical Quantum Computing Basics,” in addition to seminars examining the social implications of Quantum Computing and the Quantum Internet. The workshops are open to students of all faculties within Technical University of Munich. Through this real-life interdisciplinary approach, students of the social sciences and engineers can learn and profit from each other’s strengths.
During the last two semesters, the students explored the opportunities and challenges with quantum technologies in general and focused on quantum communication within the first seminars. The next semester the Quantum Social Lab will go on offering workshops, project work, and theses advisory within different applications and research areas, including a lecture dealing with the fundamentals of quantum technologies (physics, mathematics, and algorithmics) as well as a master’s seminar examining quantum technologies in theory and praxis.
