Research, development, and promotion of quantum technologies

Over a third of all DTU's institutes and centres is involved in quantum research in areas such as sensors, communication, computers, and simulators. Quantum DTU is a joint gateway to these competencies, spanning research, education, and collaboration, as well as the development of quantum technology.

Interested in collaborating?

Quantum technology has the potential to contribute to solutions to the many challenges facing the world.

DTU works to develop quantum technologies, both via basic research and applied research, so that quantum technology can become applicable to companies and authorities.

Quantum technology–a growing field

Quantum technology is a new field for which we do not yet know the full potential. For example, we expect that the quantum computer will be able to perform the complicated calculations that are necessary to solve societal problems such as Earth's climate, renewable energy, cyber security and the development of new medicine.

DTU is involved in quantum research, development, and startup in areas such as quantum sensors, quantum communication and encryption, and quantum computers.

Quantum DTU makes quantum technology available to society, companies, and authorities so that quantum technologies can be developed for the benefit of people.

Want to study quantum technologies?

Study line

The study line in quantum engineering focuses on the understanding, control, and design of complex quantum systems for applications in emerging quantum technologies.

MSc programme

The 2-year MSc program in Quantum Information Science is an interdisciplinary programme combining computer science, mathematics, and physics.


This course prepare the students for the technology of tomorrow in information transfer, the Quantum Internet.

More study lines

On the Danish Quantum Community’s website you will find the Quantum Exchange Portal, which outlines the opportunities to study quantum technology (master’s level and above) across all universities in Denmark.
