Join us at the Institute for Quantum Computing for a two-week introduction to the theoretical and experimental study of quantum information processing.

During the Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) will be exposed to lectures and experiments on the following topics and more.

  • Quantum information processing
  • Implementation for quantum information processing
  • Experimental exploration

The Women in Physics Canada (WIPC) conference, hosted by the University of Waterloo, Faculty of Science, Department of Physics & Astronomy and the Institute for Quantum Computing, will bring together early career scientists to present their research and hear plenary talks from leaders in physics.

We welcome attendance by people of all genders.


The Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) is a two-week program on the theory and experimental study of quantum information processors aimed primarily at students just completing their junior year. The program is designed to introduce students to the field of quantum information processing. The lectures are geared to students of engineering, physics, chemistry and math, though all interested students are invited to apply.

Apply for QCSYS and discover how the physics and mathematics of quantum mechanics and cryptography merge into one of the most exciting topics in contemporary science – quantum cryptography.

  • Engage in hands-on experiments and attend lectures
  • Collaborate with renowned researchers
  • Participate in group work and social activities
  • Stay in a university residence with QCSYS counsellor

This annual summer school series focuses on educating select early-stage graduate students in a stimulating environment of lectures by world-leading researchers covering leading aspects of quantum information. The lecturers are known not only for being leaders in the field, but also for their strong didactic skills. The lecturers are drawn from the areas of computer science, mathematics, chemistry and physics.
