Description: Many talented undergraduates may not be aware of the opportunities afforded by being in the
vanguard of quantum information science and engineering. MIT will offer a special summer program,
Quantum Information Science for Undergraduates (QuISU) from June 15th through June 19th 2009. QuISU is for rising seniors (i.e., undergraduates about to enter their senior year) majoring in physics, computer science, engineering, or mathematics, who seek a basic knowledge of quantum information processing. The course is self-contained, assuming only a very basic knowledge of probability and linear algebra. The principal faculty will be Professor Isaac L. Chuang, co-author of the definitive textbook Quantum Computation and Quantum Information, Professor Seth Lloyd, who created the design for the first workable quantum computer, and Professor Jeffrey H. Shapiro, who has pioneered the use of nonclassical light sources for communication and sensing. In addition to classroom instruction, students will have laboratory tours; interact with MIT graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and other faculty who work on quantum information processing.
Stipend: n/a

Additional Information: To be eligible, students must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States and
be working towards an undergraduate degree in one of the physical science disciplines
listed on this notice.
