UMD’s new Quantum Technology Center has an eye toward future tech, jobs
The University of Maryland College Park said it is opening a new center focused on translating quantum physics research into new technology products.
With the Quantum Technology Center, UMD is aiming to build on existing research programs and partnerships in quantum science and systems engineering. The center will look to collaborate with industry and government labs to help bring research discoveries “from the lab to the marketplace,” according to the university. It also has a goal of preparing students to enter quantum-related engineering jobs.
