Master’s Program Quantum Science & Technology

In the Quantum Science & Technology program students learn to directly translate current results from research and development in science (e. g. Physics, Chemistry), Mathematics and Engineering (e. g. informatics, electrical engineering) into applications, such as quantum sensors, quantum algorithms, and quantum computers, which exploit quantum phenomena – especially superposition and entanglement.

This page gives an overview of the curriculum in the Master’s program Quantum Science & Technology and links current informationen for students. Prospective applicants can find detailed information on the study program in description of M. Sc. Quantum Science & Technology.


The first year of this interdisciplinary Master’s program focuses mainly on fundamental introductory lectures and lab courses, while the second year focuses on the research within the framework of the Master’s thesis.


7th and 8th Semester - Study phase

PH1009 QST Experiment: Quantum Hardware 10 CP
PH1010 QST Theory: Quantum Information 10 CP
Focus Area 30 CP
PH1034 Advanced Practical Training 6 CP
General Education Subjects  4 CP

9th and 10th Semester - Research Phase

Master’s seminar 15 CP
Master’s practical training 15 CP
Master's thesis 30 CP 

During the study phase, students attend mandatory courses and, additionally, some courses chosen from the catalog of elective courses. Important: the two mandatory modules (PH1009 & PH1010) must be completed in the 1st semester. The elective subjects cover selected topics from the research area Quantum Science & Technology and prepare students for engaging in current research, uniquely reflecting the broad research activity of the cooperating universities TUM and LMU. A scientifically-oriented lab course and a general-education subject round off the profile of this Master’s program.

During the research phase, the students will directly encounter current research topics in Quantum Science & Technology. After an initial familiarization through the Master’s seminar and the Master’s practical training, students will independently work on their Master’s thesis under the guidance of a thesis advisor. During the whole research phase, intensive support will be ensured by mentoring programs involving numerous scientists from all participating research institutions. Students will profit from an excellent research environment and participation in various national and international research networks.
