WACQT has the goal to build a broad competence base for Quantum Technology in Sweden. We therefore welcome all Swedish PhD students within the broad field of quantum technology to apply for affiliation with the WACQT Graduate School, independent on financing. As a WACQT PhD student you become a member of a large Swedish quantum technology community. 

An affiliated WACQT PhD student is requested to meet the same requirements as PhD students directly financed by WACQT, namely:

  • Take at least 15 hp, or credit points, of quantum technology courses during the PhD-studies.
  • Take the WACQT lab course, 6 hp (counts towards the 15 hp).
  • Attend the bi-annual summer schools.
  • Attend the field trips to visit other quantum technology sites.
  • Attend the WACQT annual meetings.

After having graduated, WACQT research school will issue a certificate that the PhD student has fulfilled all requirements as a WACQT PhD student.

To apply for affiliation, the PhD-student is asked to send a short description of their thesis project and the supervisor is asked to send a mail stating their support for the affiliation. Send information to the school director.
