Towards a National Graduate School in Quantum Science and Technology

InstituteQ brings together the academic offering of InstituteQ partners Aalto University and University of Helsinki to provide master and PhD students the best possible education in the fields of Quantum Science and Technology. We are building on existing educational programs and extending the offering with cooperation between faculties and third-parties.


Our ethos is to provide education on a broad front and for various levels of expertise. We reach out the general public and the policy makers to communicate about quantum science and technologies.


We educate the future workforce in the field, promoting also joint supervision of students between organizations.

We enable the parties to jointly develop, coordinate and deliver top, international level education in quantum technology.

We educate the highly skilled future workforce for the field, promoting also the joint supervision of students between organizations.

The Department of Applied Physics of the School of Science of Aalto University, the Department of Electronics and Nanoengineering of the School of Electrical Engineering of Aalto University and the Faculty of Science of the University of Helsinki have signed an agreement on “Cooperation on quantum technology education in the Helsinki metropolitan area”. The agreement is in place as of September 1st, 2021, and allows for undergraduate and graduate students of the participating institutions to sign up for any quantum-related courses organized by the same institutions.
