Quantum sensing, quantum networking and communication, and quantum computing have attracted significant attention recently, as these quantum technologies could offer significant advantages over existing technologies. This second quantum revolution has also driven an increased need for quantum-proficient STEM graduates. To accelerate the impact of quantum technologies and better prepare our students to enter this exciting new world, we need to consider how we can empower our students with the relevant skills and abilities to be successful. Prof. Lewandowski will present results from broad studies of the quantum industry, including the types of activities being carried out in the quantum industry, profile the types of jobs that exist, and describe the skills valued across the quantum industry, as well as in each type of job. Additionally, she will describe her group’s efforts to improve student preparation for entering the quantum industry through experimental training both in a lab course setting, as well as through a new two-semester project-based course. This course has students work in teams on industry-sponsored projects to learn relevant technical (e.g., nanofabrication, servo electronics) and professional skills, such as project management, professional communication, and budget management.
