The rapidly growing quantum information science and engineering (QISE) industry will require both quantum-aware and quantum-proficient engineers at the bachelor’s level. We provide a roadmap for building a quantum engineering education program to satisfy this need. For quantum-aware engineers, we describe how to design a first quantum engineering course accessible to all STEM students. For the education and training of quantum-proficient engineers, we detail both a quantum engineering minor…

Quantum information science and technology is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field drawing researchers from science and engineering fields. Traditional instruction in quantum mechanics is
Assessing the Needs of the Quantum Industry
Quantum information science and technology (QIST) has progressed significantly in the last decade, such that it is no longer solely in the domain of research labs, but is now beginning to be
Graduate quantum mechanics reform
We address four main areas in which graduate quantum mechanics education can be improved: course content, textbook, teaching methods, and assessment tools. We report on a three year longitudinal
Design and Validation of the Quantum Mechanics Conceptual Survey.
The Quantum Mechanics Conceptual Survey (QMCS) is a 12-question survey of students' conceptual understanding of quantum mechanics. It is intended to be used to measure the relative effectiveness of
Quantum Computation and Quantum Information (10th Anniversary edition)
Containing a wealth of figures and exercises, this well-known textbook is ideal for courses on the subject, and will interest beginning graduate students and researchers in physics, computer science, mathematics, and electrical engineering.
Student understanding of quantum mechanics at the beginning of graduate instruction
A survey was developed to probe student understanding of quantum mechanics at the beginning of graduate instruction. The survey was administered to 202 physics graduate students enrolled in
Spin First vs. Position First instructional approaches to teaching introductory quantum mechanics
As part of ongoing research in teaching and learning quantum mechanics, we are investigating student learning of basic introductory quantum concepts in two different paradigms. In one paradigm,
Examining Student Ideas about Energy Measurements on Quantum States across Undergraduate and Graduate Levels.
[This paper is part of the Focused Collection on Upper Division Physics Courses.] Energy measurements play a fundamental role in the theory of quantum mechanics, yet there is evidence that the
