Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students

Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students

The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is a unique, eight-day enrichment program for students hosted by the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo.

The school offers an interesting blend of lectures, hands-on experiments and group work focused on quantum cryptography — a cutting-edge field that utilizes the fascinating laws of quantum mechanics to develop unbreakable encryption that protects communication.

Students get a first-hand look into the physics and mathematics of quantum mechanics, cryptography and how they merge into one of the most exciting topics in contemporary science — quantum cryptography. Participants meet and collaborate with some of the most renowned researchers the field has to offer. Daily social activities encourage relationship building between participants.
