Science at SIT

The mission of SIT is to drive transformative advances in education, science, research, and technology

SIT research mission

The SIT Research Mission focuses on the QuCS (Quantum Computer Science & Software Engineering), QTAM (Quantum Technologies and Advanced Materials) and QuBuS (Quantum business Sciences) Strategic Research Domains. In all of these areas, SIT will target fundamental science, and develop it through to applications and company creation.

Interdisciplinary Approach & Applied Science

Knowledge, science, and prediction are at the core of SIT's mission. These will require a new generation of computing and knowledge creation platforms, with low cost, low power, high speed, high bandwidth, and low latency. Science discovery will be one major focus: SIT will be known as the place where new science emerges through fundamental discoveries in, and at the interfaces of, quantum physics, photonics, nanotechnology, engineering, materials science, chemistry, CS, QuBuS. QTAM will lead this mission.
