The aim of the Master's program is to create an educational program aimed at training students in the field of "quantum information " (optical quantum communication and computation). The objective of the Master's program is to provide real technical skills to its attendees, including in the Armed Forces.
The main purpose of the content and methodologies imparted in the Master's program is in the training of students who, after participation in the Master's program, can enter the world of work with a wealth of high-profile technical and practical knowledge of international level.
The master's course is aimed at individuals interested in developing concrete professionalism in the field of innovative technologies related to optics, photonics and quantum information processing and transmission through innovative secure communication techniques, such as quantum cryptography.
For the conduct of courses and the organization of training activities, the Master's program relies on:
a) of the didactic and scientific skills, in the basic and applied fields of disciplines related to the objectives of the Master's degree, present in the Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering and the Faculty of Information Engineering, Informatics and Statistics of the University of Rome "La Sapienza";
(b) of the specific contributions of experts and operators of proven and documented experience carrying out their activities in public and private research facilities, and in the bodies in charge of the study of physics, laser optics and the resulting applications in the field of information security.
