Quantum engineering consortium

The School of Science and Engineering will receive $500,000 as part of a new consortium dedicated to educating quantum engineers. The funding will train a new generation of these engineers in advanced computing and communications technologies. The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Energy’s RENEW Initiative, which awarded a total of $4.8 million in grants to the seven universities in the consortium.
