The Quantum and Distributed Computer Science program from Paris-Saclay University will enable you to acquire deep knowledge of the following fields through both advanced theoretical courses and extensive practice of programming techniques: distributed systems, high-performance computing and quantum computing to exploit quantum parallelism and obtain otherwise unreachable performance gains.


During the Quantum and Distributed Computer Science program from Paris-Saclay University, students will acquire solid knowledge of the fields of distributed algorithms, parallel computing, quantum computing, but also strong skills in advanced programming, especially for HPC (MPI, OpenMP, etc.). The choice of optional modules will allow them to become familiar with various other possible fields of application, including AI, data sciences or security. It is therefore a broad and complete training course that allows them to both acquire solid theoretical foundations and master their practical implementation. Thus, the course enables rapid integration into the industrial and scientific worlds, by developing the ability to anticipate technological developments.

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the current and future challenges of distributed, parallel or quantum systems. Be able to assess their contributions to various fields of applications (Security, Machine Learning, Data Science).
  • Be able to design and prove distributed, parallel or quantum algorithms/protocols and analyze their complexities (in time, memory, communication, energy, etc.). 
  • Understand advanced C++ programming techniques in order to design concise and efficient code. Become familiar with parallel programming paradigms.
  • Understand the quantum nature of information. Become familiar with quantum programming as well as error correction and simulation techniques.
