PRESS RELEASE — With the launch of the National Quantum Mission, there is a pressing need for a skilled workforce in Quantum Technologies. With this goal in mind, IISER Pune is pleased to announce the launch of a new Masters programme in Quantum Technology.

This two-year programme will equip students with the skills to work in Quantum Technology. The programme will include significant industry overlap ensuring that a portion of the imparted training has direct industry relevance. The programme will also include courses on Entrepreneurship and Patenting.

Announcing the programme, Prof. Sudarshan Ananth, Chair of the Physics department at IISER Pune said, “Two new Quantum-labs are being set up exclusively for this programme. These labs will offer advanced training in the methods and techniques of Quantum Technology to students of the programme. This new Masters has been designed keeping the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 in mind.”

Prof. Ananth said that IISER Pune is ideally placed to offer such a Masters because it is host to the DST Technology-Innovation-Hub on Quantum Technologies with 12 faculty members from the physics department working actively in sub-fields of Quantum Technology.
