Doctorate Program

Quantum Computing, Control and Communication

TU Munich (lead management), LMU Munich; in cooperation with Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum-Optics

Campus der TU München

Degree: Doctorate Degree

Duration of study: 3 years

Places of study: Munich / partner university (3 months)

Requirements: Diploma-equivalent or Master

Language of instruction: English

The international and interdisciplinary doctorate programme addresses physicists, physical chemists, as well as students in informatics and mathematics.

Exploiting quantum effects in nanotechnology requires specific methods. These include quantum computing, quantum control, quantum communication and quantum information processing, the corner stones of our programme.

A close interplay between theory and experiment is triggered by a specially tailored curriculum for the doctorate program within the Elite Network of Bavaria (ENB) with joint PhD projects under joint supervision by the responsible main supervisor, a supervisor from a second group in Munich as well as an associated partner abroad. An individual thesis advisory board is assigned at the beginning of each project and guarantees excellent personal tuition.

Typically, a PhD project runs over 3 years. The programme is held in Munich with intensive exchange within existing national, European (currently 8 EU programmes with some 60 partner groups all over the world), and international research networks and an integrated 3 months' stay in a partner group abroad.

The excellence programme is enriched by ENB guest professors and special workshops with further participants, e.g. from industry. Moreover, ENB students are encouraged to improve their presentation and management skills in dedicated courses.
