The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Center for Quantum Science and Engineering (CQSE) is jointly operated by the UCLA College Division of Physical Sciences and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering. They research many different areas of quantum technology, many of which can have great relevance for the aerospace industry. The gift from Boeing follows two recent grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) which awarded $25 million to a consortium of several universities for the Quantum Leap Challenge Institute for Present and Future Quantum Computation and also a five-year, $3 million traineeship grant to provide fellowships to twelve doctoral students per year. Additional information about this funding from Boeing is available in a news release posted on the UCLA website here.
