The University of Gdańsk is a dynamically developing institution of higher learning, and one that combines respect for tradition with a commitment to the new. It offers education in nearly all fields of academic knowledge, in sought-after professions on the job market and in state-of-the-art facilities in its Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia campuses. It is currently one of the most modern academic centres in Poland.
The University of Gdańsk was founded on 20 March 1970. It was formed from an amalgamation of two institutions of higher education: the Higher Economics School in Sopot and the Higher Pedagogical School in Gdańsk. Later, it also included the Higher Teacher Training School. The precursor of the Higher Economics School in Sopot was the Higher School of Maritime Trade in Sopot, which opened in 1945 and awarded its first degrees in 1947.
The Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics has existed in its present form since 1991. It holds the rights to award both doctorates and habilitations in physics and mathematics.
Laboratories equipped with the newest measuring apparatus ensure a high level of research and teaching. We effectively cooperate with numerous leading research groups from all over the world.
The International Centre for Theory of Quantum Technologies (ICTQT) is a joint research unit of the University of Gdańsk and the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IQOQI-Vienna), which plays the role an official strategic partner. ICTQT was funded by the Foundation for Polish Science within implementation of the project “International Centre for Theory of Quantum Technologies”.
The project is financed by the Foundation for Polish Science from the European Union funds of the Smart Growth Operational Programme, axis IV: Increasing the research potential (Measure 4.3) under the International Research Agendas Programme.
Quantum Information Technology – master programme at the University of Gdańsk Quantum Information Technology (QIT) is an emergent interdisciplinary field of study that combines the areas of physics, mathematics, and computer science. By joining the Quantum Information Technology two years Master’s programme you will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills in the theory and applications of the technological aspects of quantum information theory.
This Master’s programme runs over two academic years, and is fully taught in English. The main focus of the study will be on theoretical aspects of QIT, however study of physical implementations and laboratory sessions are also included. QIT is an innovative and rapidly developing global field of study. These include unbreakable cryptography, ultraprecision measurements, and quantum computers which can solve problems which are intractable on any classical computer. These developing technologies have the potential to revolutionise the modern world: from mobile phones to medicine, chemistry, and finance.
