Quantum Science and Engineering Courses at Stanford

Main content start

Quantum science and engineering courses at Stanford are available from a number of departments. We have created this list as a starting point for students to research and consider courses that align with their interests in quantum. Conversations with your faculty advisor and peer advisors are tremendously beneficial when considering courses and research interests.

 Course number and name can change. Check Stanford Bulletin ExploreCourses for details.
