Gig City Goes Quantum, Here At UTC And Beyond

Imagining the quantum internet of the future.
Imagining the quantum internet of the future.

Our campus, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, will play a major role in shaping the future of quantum computing.

Next week, UTC will host three presentations on that future as part of the Gig City Goes Quantum initiative - which will celebrate World Quantum Day this Friday, April 14th.

The initiative - led by EPB here in Chattanooga and the firm Qubitekk - will prepare for education, jobs and business opportunities in the emerging field of quantum technology.

Dr. Tian Li - who will give his presentation on Friday, April 21st - is an assistant professor of physics here at UTC.


The presentations hosted by UTC take place at the Center for Professional Education in the James R. Mapp Building on campus.
