Prepare to thrive in the new paradigm of quantum technology with a master’s degree from one of the top physics programs in the country.

Technology based in quantum physics will vastly surpass our current computing power and engineering approaches. At Stevens, you’ll gain an understanding of the current state of the field and conduct research in emerging areas, such as quantum communications, quantum optics and quantum entanglement. You’ll graduate empowered to make leaps from theoretical science to applied technology solutions that hold promise for advancing science and industry. A master’s degree in quantum engineering opens the door to doctoral studies and a career in academia, but also industry roles such as atomic physicist, quantum physicist, project manager, consultant and many more. Recent quantum engineering master’s graduates have been hired by companies such as IBM, Google and Amazon.

The Stevens Advantage

Stevens’ proximity to New York City offers students access to a large startup community that often provides internship, mentorship and employment opportunities for quantum engineering master’s students. On campus, students collaborate with faculty working at the forefront of the quantum field in several nationally recognized laboratories and centers and can work with the Stevens Quantum Campus Network—the nation’s first campus hybrid quantum-communications network.
