Quantum Information Science and Engineering Network (QISE-NET)
The CQE further helps to develop a national workforce of quantum scientists and engineers through the Quantum Information Science and Engineering Network (QISE-NET).
Launched with support from the National Science Foundation and in partnership with Harvard University, QISE-NET enables approximately 20 students to conduct their doctoral research jointly with industry or a national laboratory.
The program pairs graduate students with both an academic adviser and a collaborator from a leading technology company or national laboratory. Over the course of four years, the “triplets” each address a pressing research question for both academia and industry. The students serve as the principal “communicators-in-residence” at both universities and industry, translating ideas into research results.
