The Duke ECE Quantum Computing Concentration has two tracks—Software and Hardware
- The Software Track prepares students to program and control quantum information devices and builds off the well-established Software Development Concentration
- The Hardware Track focuses on the design, fabrication and testing of quantum devices
The Quantum Computing Concentration is available as part of:
Duke ECE is home to international leaders in information physics research, embodied in pathbreaking programs in metamaterials, quantum devices, and optical systems.
Master's students will learn from a faculty team with deep interdisciplinary research strengths and a track record of entrepreneurship and innovation.
