The two-years master program "Quantum Information-Quantum Engineering" is accessible to students having a bachelor in physics, with a first background in quantum mechanics.

The Second Quantum Revolution relies on the most fundamental aspects of quantum physics: coherence and entanglement. These concepts gave rise to metaphysical debates between the founding fathers of quantum mechanics, until the physical reality of the quantum weirdness was confirmed by the experimental tests to highlight the spin or the violations of Bell’s inequalities for example. Nowadays, quantum coherence and entanglement hold the promise to bring a shift of paradigm through quantum science: a technological revolution is underway at the international level to exploit quantum superposition, entanglement and the control of individual quantum systems (optical, superconducting or spin based systems). In this context, the strengths of Université Grenoble Alpes contribute to the research and the development of all strategic areas of spintronics, quantum information, quantum engineering, quantum metrology, quantum simulation and quantum sensing, that are already or will eventually impact our day-to-day life.

To address the growing demand for this new expertise, the QIQE master offers an ambitious program of lectures covering the whole spectrum from fundamental quantum physics to experimental implementations, new paradigms in computer science, and enabling technologies. The master is open to the national and international students willing to work on fundamental quantum problems, and simultaneously contribute to the emergence of quantum technologies.

The first year of the program, M1 in Nanophysics and Quantum physics, provides students with a basics and confirmed knowledge in quantum physics, solid state physics, semi-conductors and optics. The first semester of the second year is devoted to foundamental courses. The academic program is completed in the second semester by a master thesis, realized during a full time research internship of at least 5 months from February to June, in a laboratory or a research Institute. The program is as follows:

First year 60 ETCS

Second year spring semester 30 ETCS
