QuantumX has a new National Science Foundation Research Traineeship program for UW graduate students. I’m hoping you could help spread the word to other advisors and undergraduate seniors in ECE that may be interested.

Information about AQET:

Accelerating Quantum-Enabled Technologies (AQET) is a 12 to 15-month training program for UW PhD and MS students interested in quantum information science and technology (QIST). AQET is one of the nation’s first programs to provide graduate students with the skills to develop new quantum materials, devices, and algorithms for applications in computation, communication, and sensing.

For students considering pursuing a graduate degree at the UW, AQET is a unique opportunity to engage in QIST-specific coursework and participate in professional development with industry and national lab partners, including Microsoft, IBM, IonQ, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. AQET fellowships are available to select PhD students who are US citizens, nationals, or permanent residents. All graduate student trainees who complete the AQET course receive a transcriptable option in QIST.

Prospective UW graduate students should apply to the department of their interest – usually chemistry, computer science & engineering, electrical & computer engineering, materials science & engineering, or physics – and mention their interest in the AQET program in their application statement.
