Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The project work consists of an independent work in quantum technology. The subject of the project is decided by the examiner and shall constitute an in-depth study of one of the sub-areas of quantum technology. The project work must be at an advanced level and correspond to 5 weeks of full-time studies. The work must be reported via an oral and a written presentation.

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course, the student should be able to:

  • apply relevant knowledge and skills previously acquired in the subject area to an in-depth problem in quantum technology
  • within given frameworks, even with limited information, independently analyze and discuss an issue in quantum technology
  • reflect on, evaluate and critically review their own and others' scientific results
  • document and present their work to a specialized target group with high demands on structure, formalities and language management
  • identify their need for additional knowledge and continuously develop their skills

Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites

Completed course: SI2380 Quantum Mechanics, advanced course

Completed course: SK2903 Quantum technology

The examiner must ensure that the student has the additional subject knowledge in quantum technology required for the project. Normally, this means that the student, in addition to the courses mentioned above, should also have passed another 1-2 conditionally elective courses at advanced level in quantum technology.
