Quantum Information Science (QIS) is a burgeoning field at the cutting edge of education, research, and technology. It
brings together scientists and engineers that have traditionally worked in separate disciplines including physics, materials
science, electrical engineering, computer science, chemistry, and mathematics.
Recent experimental and theoretical advances
in materials, design, fabrication, and control of a range of quantum-mechanical systems have fueled tremendous strides in the
field. As a result, QIS now accounts for a substantial fraction of physics research as a whole. Cross-disciplinary aspects and
strong links to industry, furthermore, speak to the significant potential impact of QIS on both science and society.

The UCLA Master of Quantum Science and Technology (MQST) program prepares students for research and development in quantum
technology. Students in the MQST program will learn and strengthen their knowledge of the foundations of quantum mechanics,
quantum computing, quantum information, and quantum devices.
They will learn how to work in the laboratory with quantum
optics, quantum sensing and materials, and quantum devices, and they will learn the algorithms, languages, and tools of
quantum computing. A distinguishing feature of the UCLA MQST program is the significant laboratory component.
