Learn about the current state of quantum technologies, as well as the business opportunities that these technologies will generate.

The appearance of quantum computing means a change in the very foundations of information technologies. The change in the current technological landscape is profound and therefore, professionals working in information technologies must arm themselves with the new knowledge necessary to understand and work in this field.

In order to carry out this step, new professional profiles capable of researching, advising, implementing and developing projects based on quantum computing and technologies are necessary. These new profiles must understand how to transform new scientific advances and knowledge into applicable engineering, both in the form of devices and processes, creating and adding value to this new quantum engineering, and enabling ways to make it profitable in different sectors, such as aeronautics, automobiles, production systems, banking and health.
